So having seen favourites Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova win their Centre Court matches in straight sets, can Andy Murray now follow suit?
German Benjamin Becker, ranked 92 in the world, is the opponent. The pair have only met once before but that was a couple of weeks ago as Murray beat him on his way to winning the trophy at Queen's Club.
Murray and Becker knocking up now. The Scot was so frustrated to miss the last Grand Slam with a back injury forcing him to miss the French Open so he is sure to be raring to go today. Last time Murray was out here on Centre? Winning the Olympic gold medal.
Long rally to open the match, Murray takes the first point of his journey in the tournament!
Murray lets a 30-0 lead slip, Becker back to 30-30.
Potential opportunity as Becker slices into the net to give Murray a 30-0 lead against the serve.
What a drop shot from Murray! Fooled everyone there to go 0-30 ahead.
Fabulous shot from Becker, squeezing the ball through a tiny gap past. Really making Murray think. 15-30.
Neither player convincing on serve. Murray goes 0-30 up again.
@anaahmed - Would always take something big for them to move the Murray match, Nadal being two sets to love down is probably the only kind of exception though!
Good play at the net from Murray but Becker had a chance to pass him. 30-15 now, two points away from the set.
Rafael Nadal is out of Wimbledon! He was in the same half as Murray, but now he is out in straight sets to Steve Darcis. Just a year on from losing to Lukas Rosol. Perhaps the seeding system was justified.
A fabulous point just goes the way of Becker as Murray's lob bounces just out. Brilliant determination and footwork from Murray there, he wants this match over with.
Wow, exactly a 50:50 split on the last poll on whether Nadal being knocked out is a good thing or not.
Brilliant control on that backhand to take Becker out of the game. 30-30
