— Wimbledon (@Wimbledon) June 28, 2021
A delayed start to action on the outside courts on day one saw the matches of Dan Evans and Harriet Dart moved back to the second day at All England Club. They join Queen’s Club finalist Cameron Norrie and Francesca Jones in the line-up for Tuesday looking to continue flying the flag for Great Britain.
Day one saw Andy Murray roll back the years to stun 24th seed Nikoloz Basilashvili in four sets at Centre Court. After throwing away a 5-0 lead in the third, the two-time Wimbledon winner eventually progressed after securing a first victory at the tournament since 2017.
Match of the day
World No 1 Barty will be on Centre Court but may not have the backing of the crowd with Carla Suarez Navarro potentially playing her last match at Wimbledon. The Spaniard will retire at the end of the season after recently recovering from cancer in April.
Germany’s Court One takeover
