Wimbledon Day One order of play: Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Emma Raducanu in action
Playing order of Wimbledon Day One: defending champion Novak Djokovic kicks off on Center Court, followed by British duo Andy Murray and Emma Raducanu… while Cameron Norrie gets into action on Court Two
One of the biggest events on the sports calendar is just around the corner as Wimbledon gets underway on Monday, with Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Emma Raducanu all in action at Center Court.
It was Novak Djokovic who claimed the men’s title at SW19 last year and, as is tradition, therefore initiates proceedings at Center Court, taking on the unseeded Soonwoo Kwon in a match he is expected to win comfortably.
All eyes will then be on the British, with Emma Raducanu – who appeared at the tournament last year reaching the last 16, before winning the US Open in a truly historic feat – finishing second on the prestigious field.

The 19-year-old, seeded 10th, is second on Center Court, taking on Alison Van Uytvanck in what is expected to be a tricky encounter. While injuries limited Raducanu to just half a game on the grass this summer, Van Uytvanck has taken two Challenger Tour titles and won 12 of 13 games.
Murray, who has also battled fitness issues in the run-up to the tournament, will be on Center Court last against James Duckworth. Also in action today are Cameron Norrie and wildcard entry Ryan Peniston.
