Wimbledon 2022 officially got underway on Monday 27 June 2022 and Andy Murray returned to the action on Centre Court with a tough first round match against Jamie Duckworth.
The Scot, who won at the All England Club in 2013 and 2016, took to Centre Court in the final match of day one’s first round fixtures and defeated the Australian Duckworth in four sets.
Murray, 35, finds himself in the top half of the bracket along with the likes of world number one Novak Djokovic but will have a long way to go and several difficult opponents to conquer if he is to meet the Serb.
However, after his 4-6 6-3 6-2 6-4 win against Duckworth, Murray looks on set for a strong competition in SW19.
Here is everything you need to know about when, where and against who he will continue his 2022 Wimbledon men’s singles quest:

Wimbledon 2022 men’s singles outright odds
Novak Djokovic is the pre-tournament favourite to win the men’s singles event at Wimbledon this year.
The Serb starts the competition at 4/5 with Matteo Berrettini the next closest challenger in the market at 11/2 followed by Rafael Nadal at 7/1.
As for Andy Murray, the more optimistic punters can back the Scot at 50/1 to win a third Wimbledon men’s singles title.
Although those are very long odds, it still puts the 35-year old comfortably in the top half of the betting market as the tenth shortest priced competitor.
