Watching Andy Murray's return to Centre Court this week has been nothing short of magnificent. The grit and determination on display, as well as the sheer relief that his hip is withstanding grand slam tennis, has reignited our excitement for what he might still achieve in his career.
He'll have to play well to progress through to the second week though. Today's opponent out on Centre Court is No.10 seed Denis Shapovalov, a player who has always shown great promise and is tipped to one day win majors. He's 12 years younger than Murray, he'll have fresh legs after his second round match against Pablo Andujar was a walkover and Murray will be tired after two long and emotional matches this week.
However experience will count in Murray's favour - the Canadian has never got past the third round at Wimbledon, but you have to go back to 2006 to find the last time an uninjured Murray didn't make it to at least the quarter final. It's all shaping up for another edge of your seat spectacle, the perfect way to welcome a great weekend of sport.
Read on for all the details on Murray's next match in the tournament.
When does Andy Murray play next at Wimbledon?
Two-time champion Murray continues his campaign today, Friday 2nd July. The match will be the third out on Centre Court, and is expected to start after 5pm. The exact time will depend on the length of the preceding matches as Garbine Muguruza takes on Ons Jabeur and Brit Dan Evans plays Sebastian Korda.
