Murray's first round match against Georgia's Nikoloz Basilashvili is set to kick off at teatime. 

The official start-time on the timetable is 4:45pm, but this depends on whether the preceding matches run to schedule. 

The former two-time champion will begin his campaign on centre court, an arena he has become very familair with over the length of his career which he will aim to use to his advantage against the 24th seed.

When did Andy Murray last play Wimbledon?

Murray's last Wimbledon tournament was 2019 when he partnered Serena Williams in the mixed doubles. 

However, he has not played in the Men's Singles since 2017 when he was knocked out of the quarter finals after struggling with a hip injury. 

What happens if he wins this match? 

If Murray wins his first-round match, he will progress to the second round where he will face either Arthur Rinderknech or Oscar Otte.
