World number one Andy Murray began the defence of his Wimbledon Open title with a straight-set win over Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik on Centre Court.
Despite a hip injury, which disrupted his build-up, the Scot won 6-1 6-4 6-2,.
Murray hit 29 winners and maintained his form either side of a rain break in the third set to win in one hour and 44 minutes.
His next opponent is Germany’s Dustin Brown – the man who beat Rafael Nadal in 2015 – in round two.
Murray is trying to match fellow Briton Fred Perry as a three-time singles champion and claim his fourth Grand Slam title.
He also faces a battle with Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka to keep hold of his number one ranking.
