Hibs v Liverpool as Andy Murray prepares to take on John Millman at Wimbledon


Andy Murray is a Hibs fan when it comes to football but he also has a soft spot for Arsenal, so he could be in for some cross-court banter from his next opponent.

Australian John Millman is a 27-year-old Liverpool fan on account of the fact it wound up the rest of his family.

"I have been a Liverpool fan since I was really young," he explained.

"I think on my dad's side of the family, they're all (Manchester) United supporters, and the team they hate the most is Liverpool. So being an annoying little six-year-old, you probably go against the team they hate the most.

"Since then, football is probably growing in Australia, and the amount of travel that I have done since I finished school, you see just how big the game is. Yeah, I'm a very passionate Liverpool supporter. And I love Jurgen Klopp."

Since Arsenal have found success hard to come by in the Premier League, if Murray needs a brag, he can tell Millman how Hibs won the Scottish Cup and Liverpool lost the Europa League final.

Britain's Tara Moore played brilliantly to come through her first-round match against Alison van Uytvanck, but she looks set to bow out against Svetlana Kuznetsova. Moore is the world number 227 and Kuznetsova the 13th seed so it should be no contest.

Haven't we met before?

Del Potro v Wawrinka could be a cracker. They have not met for five years, largely because of the former's injury problems, but he holds a 3-2 advantage over their careers and if he makes that 4-2 he will be a real danger in the draw.
