The world number three will be on Centre Court to play world number 58 Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan.

He arrives in SW19 in what many - including himself - have described as the best form of his life.

Bookmakers have made him the second favourite to go all the way after he conquered a fourth title at Queen's last week in impressive fashion.

Following his wedding to long-time girlfriend Kim Sears in April, Murray, 28, has declared that "marriage works".

Fans gripped by Murray mania will be giving their support inside the All England Club or watching on from the big screen on Murray Mound and TV sets in homes and workplaces up and down the country.

Andy Murray will play Kazakhstan's Mikhail Kukushkin in the first round at Wimbledon and has also been drawn in the same quarter as Rafael Nadal.

Kukushkin is ranked 58th in the world rankings and has lost to Murray on both the two occasions they have previously played each other.

Murray, the 2013 champion, could meet 10th seed Nadal in the last eight but was drawn in the opposite side of the draw to Novak Djokovic, meaning the Scot cannot meet the world number one until the final.

Murray ranked No.3 for Wimbledon

Andy Murray will be the number three seed at Wimbledon, but Rafa Nadal has been placed at No.10, it was confirmed on Wednesday.

Murray is gunning for his second Wimbledon title at the All England Club after becoming the tournament's first British men's singles champion since 1936 two years ago.

The Scot could face Nadal in the quarter finals, depending on how the draw goes on Friday.

Nadal was seeded second at Wimbledon last year but a lack of form and fitness has seen the Spaniard tumble down the ATP rankings.
