- Murray loses 6-3, 6-1 against Australia’s Alex de Minaur
- Carlos Alcaraz reaches second round after third set tie-break
Andy Murray’s hopes of being seeded at Wimbledon came to a bitter, abrupt end in his opening match at Queen’s Club as the five-time champion was soundly defeated 6-3, 6-1 by Alex de Minaur in the first round.
Murray arrived in west London with high expectations having established some positive form on grass. After skipping the French Open, he opted to drop down to ATP Challenger level and competed at events in Surbiton and Nottingham, comfortably winning both tournaments and compiling a 10-match winning run.
