Andy Murray

Andy Murray, who has won Wimbledon twice, made it to the second round at the All England Club for the 14th time in a row. Murray, who was not a favorite, beat James Duckworth of Australia 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 on Centre Court. Murray won the grass-court Grand Slam in 2013 and 2016.

Andy Murray has never lost in the first round at Wimbledon. He won the tournament in 2008, the first time a British man had won the title in 77 years.

9:35 p.m.

Marin Cilic says he can’t play at Wimbledon because he tested positive for COVID-19.

Nuno Borges, ranked 123rd, will take Cilic’s place in the draw.

Borges lost when he tried to get into Wimbledon. Now, in the first round of the main draw on Tuesday, he will play against American Mackenzie McDonald.

Cilic had just made it to the semifinals at the French Open this month. He joined Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Andy Murray as the only active men to reach the semifinals of all four major tournaments.

7:30 p.m.

Marin Cilic, who won the U.S. Open in 2014 and came in second at Wimbledon in 2017, didn’t play in the grass-court Grand Slam tournament because he was sick.

On Monday, the All England Club said that Cilic would not play and that Portugal’s Nuno Borges, ranked 123rd, would take his place in the draw.

Borges lost when he tried to get into Wimbledon. Now, in the first round of the main draw on Tuesday, he will play against American Mackenzie McDonald.

Marin Cilic was coming off a semifinal run at the French Open earlier this month. He joined Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Andy Murray as the only active men to have advanced to the semifinals in each of the four main competitions.

Hubert Hurkacz was in the running for the title when he went to Wimbledon. After the first round, he will leave.

Alejandro Davidovich Fokina of Spain beat the seventh-seeded Pole 7-6 (4), 6-4, 5-7, 2-6, 7-6 (10-8) on No. 3 Court on the first day of the tournament.

Last year, Hurkacz, 25 years old, beat Roger Federer on Center Court on his way to the semifinals. Then, to get ready for Wimbledon, he won against the number one player in the world, Daniil Medvedev, in the final of a grass-court tournament in Halle, Germany.

Federer isn’t playing this year because he had knee surgery after knee surgery. Medvedev isn’t there because all Russian and Belarusian players are banned because of the war in Ukraine.

4:10 p.m.

Novak Djokovic needed one more set than expected to get to the second round at Wimbledon.

The top-seeded Serb beat Kwon Soon-woo 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Centre Court. He has won the tournament six times.

Kwon did well when the main stadium’s roof was closed, but Djokovic got better in the middle of the third set.

Novak Djokovic’s 80th win at the All England Club made him the first person or woman to win at least 80 matches at the four major tournaments.

Alison Riske was the first player at Wimbledon to make it to the second round.

The 28th-ranked American player beat the Swiss player Ylena In-Albon 6-2, 6-4 on Court 10.

Soon after, third-seeded Ons Jabeur beat Swedish qualifier Mirjaa Bjorklund 6-1, 6-3 to move on to the next round.

Last year, Jabeur made it to the quarterfinals at the All England Club. Before this year’s tournament, he won a grass-court title in Berlin.

Novak Djokovic, who won the title last year, will play the first match on Centre Court on the first day of game Wimbledon.

The six-time winner, who has captured the three men’s singles championships at the All England Club, will take against Kwon Soon-woo, rated 81st, in the opening round.

If Djokovic wins, it will be his 80th at the All England Club. He would be the first person, male or female, to win at least 80 matches at each of the four major tournaments.

Locals will fill the other two spots in the main stadium.

Emma Raducanu, who won the U.S. Open at age 18 last September, will play Alison Van Utyvanck of Belgium next on Center Court. Then there’s Andy Murray, who has won three major titles and won Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016. He will play the Australian James Duckworth.
