Where to Watch Live

The match is set to begin at 1pm BST. Live coverage is on BBC Two and BBC Two HD. Radio coverage will be on BBC Radio 5 Live. Regular updates, radio commentary and live streaming link will be available on Wimbledon's official website.


Murray heads into the All England Club as the defending champion after defeating the competition's top seed, Novak Djokovic. The 27-year-old Scot, who was the second seed in 2013, has fallen down one spot for this year's showdown.

The two-time Grand Slam winner has undergone a turbulent year having parted ways with his coach Ivan Lendl, replacing the Czech Republican with former Women's world no 1, Amelie Mauresmo.

However, his first competition under the new coach was a failure as he suffered a shock third round exit at the Aegon Championships at the Queens Club; a pre-Wimbledon grass tournament.

The Glaswegian takes on Goffin, who is currently ranked 105 in the world. The 23-year-old has certainly impressed during his previous outings against the big four names of Tennis although he has never managed to beat them.

The Belgian is not the favourite to progress beyond this round, but he will certainly be keen on outing up a valiant performance.

The winner of this clash will face the winner between 80<sup>th ranked Pablo Andujar and 92<sup>nd ranked Blaz Rola in the second round.


Murray and Goffin are facing each other for the first time in any competition.

What They Say

Andy Murray: "He's played some very good tennis on the big stages before. I think he played Roger [Federer] a few years ago at the French Open and pushed him close in four sets. I think he also played Novak [Djokovic] in one of the slams on the hard courts before and had a tight three-set match with him. He's a solid player in all parts of the court. It will be a tricky match."
