ANDY Murray is back in action on Centre Court as he begins his Wimbledon campaign.

The Scot, who has overcome what threatened to be a career-ending hip injury, is optimistic he can his mark in the tournament he has won twice in the past.

Here’s everything you need to know about his first-round match.

What kind of form is Murray in?

The two-time champion gave a positive assessment of his form and fitness having faced a race against time to recover from an abdominal strain suffered in the final of the ATP tournament in Stuttgart two weeks ago.

Murray showed his prowess on grass once again to defeat Stefanos Tsitsipas and Nick Kyrgios and was matching last year’s Wimbledon runner-up Matteo Berrettini prior to sustaining the injury.

He was forced to pull out of the cinch Championships at Queen’s Club and was unable to practise at full tilt at the start of this week but has made encouraging progress since.

The National:

“It’s gone well,” said Murray. “I’ve been able to gradually progress my training this week and got to play a few sets, a lot of points. The last few days have been good.

“I think I showed a couple weeks ago that there was still good tennis left in me. I beat a guy in the top five in the world, was neck and neck with Berrettini, who is one of the best grass-court players in the world, before the injury.

“I played well against Kyrgios as well. The first set was a good level. And I’ve been doing pretty well in practices. I know the tennis is in there, I just need to bring it out during the event now.

Who else is in action?

Scot Cameron Norrie has built on his superb 2021 season this year, winning two more ATP titles in Delray Beach and Lyon and is seeded ninth in the men’s draw.

What he has yet to achieve is a deep run at a grand slam, with his third-round defeat by Karen Khachanov at the French Open the fifth time in the last eight major tournaments he has fallen in the last 32.

The ninth seed will open against Spanish veteran Pablo Andujar.

Britain’s third singles seed, number 28 Dan Evans, drew Australian qualifier Jason Kubler.

Raducanu, who is hopeful of overcoming a side strain in time, faces one of the trickier draws against experienced Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck in what could be her Centre Court debut.

The 19-year-old has the potential of an all-British clash in the second round against wild card Yuriko Miyazaki, who faces a tough test against France’s Caroline Garcia.
