The two-time Wimbledon champion, Andy Murray began his first-round match of Wimbledon 2022 against the Australian James Duckworth at the center court. Being unseeded and recovering from hip surgeries, Murray has shown great form this year, making it to the final of the ATP Stuttgart Open, where he lost to last year’s Wimbledon finalist, Matteo Berrettini. Murray was stunned by Duckworth as he lost the first set to Duckworth 4-6, but Murray remained unphased as he took the second set 6-3 in a jiffy.

Murray settled in the second set and won the three sets consecutively to win his first-round match and he maintains his record of never losing in the first round of Wimbledon intact. It was a convincing performance from Murray, who hopes for a good run at Wimbledon to mark his comeback after the injuries, but he faces some precarious opponents. He will face the twentieth seed John Isner in the second round and might even come across the tenth seed Jannik Sinner in the third round.

Murray has done well in the grass season, but there was still some scare at the Stuttgart Open final, where the Brit was in a lot of abdominal pain. About the match, Murray said: “I thought I did very well to rebound after the first set, He likes playing on the grass.” “He has come back from hip surgery himself in January and was playing very well. Once I started to find my returns a little more I felt comfortable, but I did well to get through it.”

Murray admitted that there were some nerves, returning to Wimbledon, “There are always nerves, pressure and butterflies and stress and all of those things before the first match, and it was a longer build-up for more than normal. But it is great to get out here, get a win under my belt and hopefully play better from here on.” It is only the 2nd appearance in the last four Wimbledon for Murray and his first since his return from multiple surgeries.
