    Britain's Andy Murray began the defence of his Wimbledon title with a straight-set win over Kazakhstan's Alexander Bublik on Centre Court.

    The Scot won 6-1 6-4 6-2, despite a hip injury which disrupted his build-up.

    Murray, the world number one, hit 29 winners and maintained his form either side of a rain break in the third set to win in one hour and 44 minutes.

    The 30-year-old will face Germany's Dustin Brown - the man who beat Rafael Nadal in 2015 - in round two.

    Murray just said that he didn't realise he was limping, seems to be saying he is not feeling any discomfort.

    Actually I found it quite interesting what he said. He said he's not in that much pain.

    Which suggests he's in some.

    Although I guess that might be a thing he just lives with but ignores like a lot of sportsmen.

    Have to be a bit mental to be at the top of most sports.

    And yet when I did this I'm asked to leave the municipal courts, my racquet is confiscated and my balls are forcibly removed from my person.

    I might have mentioned waxing a gibbous moon.

    It's all very hazy now.
