Andy Murray into Wimbledon second round

To many expectant fathers, the prospect of having a child is all-consuming, but Andy Murray is not going to let his wife's pregnancy distract him from defending his Wimbledon title.

(Adam Davy/PA) Glastonbury was so last weekend - this time it was Wimbledon's tented village that was busy as fans began to queue for tickets.

Speaking about the sport which he is so well-known for, he added: "Tennis is a tough sport and the demands we put on our bodies on a daily basis are huge".

Murray said: "You never know what can happen". It's a little bit stressful if you can't practise for a few days. "I thought to myself, 'He hired Ivan Lendl?"

Congrats to the couple! All I would say is that when I was coaching Andre he showed me time after time how quickly things can change.

"He's a bit of a character, a bit different from a lot of the players". "Do you like jumping in muddy puddles?" Another victory will take her into the third round for the first time. "If there's one tournament that I could pick to win, it would be this one, the atmosphere is unbeatable and this is always my favourite surface".

The 6ft 4in Kazak only qualified for the main draw as a lucky loser, after he was defeated in the final round of qualifying earlier this week.

"I feel OK now".

Like fellow British number one Andy Murray, Konta's preparations have not gone according to plan.

Very little of Murray's sort of hemming and hawing there.

"It's just been very sore the last few weeks and was giving me quite a lot of trouble, moving to certain shots and getting to certain positions".

"I've felt fairly calm the last few days, considering how I've been feeling", Murray said. We talked about it as a team. But I'm not interested in discussing the dates of that in here, he went on.

"He obviously loves to play on grass, it looks so natural to him", he said. Angelique Kerber is the top seed and the reigning runner-up, but the German has been unable to find her stellar 2016 form so far this season.

The three-time Grand Slam winner is hoping for a similar scenario at Wimbledon.

"I think he is fit enough, yes he did wobble, he did limp".

But Nadal is hopeful his body will stand up to the strain of the gruelling two-week tournament. "I hope I'm still playing here for five, six, seven more years, if possible".

Rafa Nadal and Jack Sock also have excellent forehands, but for consistency, reliability and great hitting I have to go with Roger Federer. It's rare that you speak to someone during a match. Marin is the favorite but Kohlschreiber is certainly capable of providing a surprise, as he will fight until the final point.
