3-time grand slam champion Andy Murray staged a perfect comeback on the centre court at Wimbledon after 4 long years. The Brit notched up a good first round win against 24th seed Nikoloz Basilashvili in 4 sets 6-4,6-3,5-7,6-3. He played amazing tennis in front of his home fans but couldn’t handle his nerves in the third set. Despite being 5-0 up, he lost the set 5-7 but then bounced back to win the fourth set.

As for his opponent, Oscar Otte, he had shown his big-match temperament at the French Open last month. The German took the first two sets of sixth seed, Alexander Zverev in the opening round before losing the match. Here in Wimbledon, he won all three of his qualifying matches without dropping a set and then beat fellow qualifier Arthur Rinderknech in the first round. He won the match in an epic 5-set marathon 4-6,6-3,6-2,6-7(5),13-12(2).

Although both the players are ranked outside the top 100, Murray will go in as the clear favorite to win the match. He beat a top 30 opponent in the opening round and showed that a lot of tennis is still left in him. On the contrary, Otte will be very tired after his 5-set marathon and maynot have the legs to compete. Expect a tight match with Murray cruising into the third round.

Prediction: Murray to win in straight sets.
