Andy Murray and Roger Federer at Wimbledon Championships 2021

Andy Murray had to work hard for his first-round win at SW19. The Scott was on the cusp of a defeat, as he was struggling to find form. The former World No. 1 won his first two games against Nikoloz Basilashvili with the first two sets 6-4, 6-3. However, Murray was put under the bus, when he was leading 5-0 in the third set, and Nikoloz then planned on switching gears. The Georgian won seven games in a row to win the third set  7-5. However, Murray prevented another upset on Day 1, as he won the fourth set 6-3.

Andy Murray will be playing either Oscar Otte or Arthur Rinderknech on Wednesday for his second-round match.

Meanwhile, Roger Federer will be playing his first-round match today, against Adrian Mannarino of France. The Swiss star is expected to have a long run, as this might be his last chance to win a Slam. However, the age factor and injuries will not be on his side.
