Emma Raducanu and Andy Murray are both in action on the opening day of Wimbledon as the iconic grass-court tournament returns to the All England Club.

As is tradition, defending men’s champion Novak Djokovic will open play on Centre Court against Soonwoo Kwon before the two top British stars get their tournaments underway.

Raducanu, who will be making her Centre Court debut after reaching the fourth round on her tournament debut last year, will be taking on the Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck in what is a tough opening match for the 19-year-old.

Murray, meanwhile, faces the Australian James Duckworth, who has faced a similar comeback from hip surgery. “He’s a hard worker,” Murray said. “He got up to his career-high ranking last year amd finished last year extremely well. I’m sure we’ll have a good match on Monday.”

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the opening day of play.

How can I watch Wimbledon on TV and is there a live stream?

The BBC will once again be providing full coverage of Wimbledon, in what is Sue Barker’s final year of presenting the Championships. Coverage will begin on BBC Two at 11am BST on the first two days of play, with BBC One then starting from 1:45pm. The action will also be available to watch on the BBC iPlayer while the BBC Sport website will be showing action from around the grounds. Today at Wimbledon presented by Clare Balding will round up the best of the action each night at 8:30pm on BBC Two.
