Summary

Sue Barker and Isa Guha present live coverage of the opening day from the All England Club, featuring the first round of the men's and ladies' singles competitions. There was plenty for the British fans to cheer about in the men's competition in the opening day last year as the tournament returned after being cancelled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Two-time champion Andy Murray recorded a 6-4, 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 win against Nikoloz Basilashvili, and Liam Broady recorded a comfortable straight-sets victory over Marco Cecchinato. However, there was disappointment for home players in the ladies' event, as Heather Watson was edged out 2-6, 7-6, 8-6 by Kristie Ahn, and Katie Swan found 2017 US Open runner-up Madison Keys too much for her in a 6-3, 6-4 loss. Elsewhere, there were mixed fortunes for two defending champions, with Petra Kvitova going out against Sloane Stephens, but Garbine Muguruza losing just one game as she coasted past Fiona Ferro
