Andy Murray’s (66/1 – Wimbledon Men’s Singles Outright) quest for a third Wimbledon title begins with a clash against Australian James Duckworth, while fellow Briton Emma Raducanu faces Belgian Alison van Uytvanck in round one of the women’s draw.
Three-time Grand Slam champion Murray’s participation at the All England Club was in serious doubt due to an abdominal injury but he is on course to make his 14th appearance in the main draw at SW19.
The 35-year-old, who won the grass-court spectacle in 2103 and 2016, has avoided a seeded player and will take on Duckworth for a second time in his opening match at a slam after beating him in the 2018 US Open.
Murray, who could face Italian Jannik Sinner in round three, has been drawn in the same half as defending champion Novak Djokovic, who is the 5/6 favourite to retain his crown after getting South Korean Kwon Soon-woo in the first round.
Italian Matteo Berrettini (11/2 – Wimbledon Men’s Singles Outright) will be hoping to go one better than last year’s runner-up finish and he faces Chile’s Cristian Garin in R1, while Spaniard Rafael Nadal, who has won both the Australian Open and the French Open in 2022, starts his quest for glory against Argentinian Francisco Cerundolo.
British men’s number one Cameron Norrie, seeded ninth, starts against Spain’s Pablo Andujar, while another home favourite in the shape of Dan Evans kicks off against Australian qualifier Jason Kubler.
Wimbledon Betting Odds
In the women’s draw, US Open champion Emma Raducanu (50/1 – Wimbledon Women’s Singles Outright) will be making her second Wimbledon appearance after reaching round four on debut last year and she starts against Van Uytvanck.
The 19-year-old could face fellow Briton Yuriko Lily Miyazaki in round two if the wildcard gets the better of France’s Caroline Garcia, who has never gone past the fourth round in the singles at SW19.
Polish ace and top seed Iga Swiatek is the 13/8 favourite to claim the spoils and make it seven tournament wins on the spin, having recently won the French Open for the second time.
However, the 21-year-old, who plays Croatian qualifier Jana Fett first up, has never gone past the fourth round at Wimbledon and has yet to win a title on grass.
Elsewhere, Serena Williams (20/1 – Wimbledon Women’s Singles Outright) marks her return to singles action with a clash against French debutant Harmony Tan, while 2019 champion Simona Halep has a tricky assignment against two-time quarter-finalist Karolina Muchova.
