Fresh from his triumph at Queen's, Murray starts his campaign against the 32-year-old German Benjamin Becker in a rematch of the quarter-final there earlier this month, where Murray prevailed 6-4, 7-6. It was the only time the two have previously met. Becker has progressed from the first round in five of his six Wimbledon tournaments, but the world No 95 has never made it past the second round of the competition.
