The two-time singles champion has only just recovered from the hip problem which almost ended his career.

Because of his fitness issues, Murray will only be competing in the doubles tournaments at Wimbledon this time around.

But the excitement about seeing the 32-year-old Scot back at the All England Club is palpable and he is set to play in front of packed crowds over the coming days.

When is Andy Murray in action at Wimbledon 2019?

Murray, who won the men’s double at Queens with Feliciano Lopez recently, partnered Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert at Wimbledon.

The duo beat Marius Copil and Ugo Humbert in the first round of the men’s competition but then lost to Croatian sixth seeds Nikola Mektic and Franko Skugor in round two.

Murray will also be in action in the mixed doubles where he’s partnering seven-time Wimbledon women’s champion Serena Williams.

Williams won the mixed event in west London with Max Mirnyi in 1998 and has claimed an incredible 14 major titles at the All England Club during her glittering career.

Murray and Williams got their campaign under way on Friday by beating Germany’s Andreas Mies and Chilean Alexa Guarachi in the first round.

They are in the top section of the draw and will now face 14th seeds Fabrice Martin and Raquel Atawo.

Murray is excited to team up with fellow superstar Williams, saying: “It’ll be great. I’m just happy to be fit and healthy again.

“With what’s happened the last year or so, you never know what’s round the corner, so it’s a great opportunity. I’ll look forward to it.”
