Andy Murray drawn against Benoit Paire in Wimbledon first round

Andy Murray was included in the draw for Wimbledon on Friday – but has yet to confirm whether he will actually play.

The two-time champion was unseeded and has been drawn against world No 48 Benoit Paire in the first round.

Murray has played just three matches since last year’s Wimbledon due to a troublesome hip injury, which was operated on in January.

Murray’s projected route to the final

  • R1: Paire
  • R2: Chardy/Shapovalov
  • R3: Del Potro
  • R4: Sock/Goffin
  • QF: Nadal
  • SF: Zverev/Djokovic
  • F: Federer

Earlier in the week, he said a decision about his Wimbledon participation would “probably” arrive by Friday but he still has not clarified his fitness.

A stand-out match in the opening round will be three-time Grand Slam winner Stan Wawrinka, who was unseeded, against Grigor Dimitrov.

Defending champion Roger Federer, the top seed, will first play Dusan Lajovic. Rafael Nadal will play Dudi Sela. Fourth seed Alexander Zverev will play James Duckworth.

Three-time Wimbledon winner Novak Djokovic will face Australian Open quarter-finalist Tennys Sandgren.

British No 1 Kyle Edmund, who beat Murray in Eastbourne this week, will first play qualifier Alex Bolt.

Liam Broady drew Milos Raonic.
