Battle of the Brits – Andy Murray’s return, where and how to watch

Published

on

Andy-Murray-Wimbledon

The six-day event will feature a men’s singles and doubles draw, featuring the likes of Andy Murray, Kyle Edmund and Dan Evans, and is being held to raise money for NHS Charities Together. All of the action will be free to view for those with an Amazon Prime account in the UK and Ireland, whilst Eurosport and the Tennis Channel will be airing matches for fans overseas.

 

The format for the men’s singles is the same as that used for the ATP Finals, with the eight players being split into two groups for round-robin play, and then the top two from each group advancing through to the knockout stages. The doubles event is similar but there are only six teams, split into groups of three, but again the top two in each group will progress through to the semi-finals.

Andy Murray

The singles groups have been named after Britain’s two stalwarts from the turn of the millennium, Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski. The players facing off in each group, along with their current ATP rankings, are as follows:

Tim Henman Group: James Ward (#273), Liam Broady (#211), Andy Murray (#129), and Kyle Edmund (#44)

Greg Rusedski Group: Jack Draper (#285), Jay Clarke (#167), Cameron Norrie (#77), and Dan Evans (#28)

Novak and Andy

Murray will take on Edmund in a clash of former British number ones on Wednesday 24th, with Murray holding a 3-1 head-to-head advantage on the ATP Tour, but it was Edmund who won last time they played on home turf, beating the two-time Wimbledon champion at Eastbourne in 2018. Dan Evans, the current British number one, will take on Cam Norrie, another top 100 player, on Thursday 25th. The pair have never played before on the main tour, but they faced each other in the final of a Challenger event back in 2016, with Evans coming out on top 6-3 6-4.

The doubles groups, named after Britain’s longest serving Davis Cup captain, Paul Hutchins, and the LTA’s first ever female president, Cathie Sabin, who passed away last month, are as follows:

Paul Hutchins Group: Liam Broady / Cameron Norrie, Dan Evans / Lloyd Glasspool, and Jamie Murray / Neal Skupski

Cathie Sabin Group: Kyle Edmund / Jack Draper, Dom Inglot / Jay Clarke, and Joe Salisbury / Jonny O’Mara

Andy Murray and James Ward are the only players entered into the singles draw who are not also playing in the doubles. For the group stages, play will begin at 13:00 (BST) with five matches scheduled for each day. The order of play for the first three days, as posted on the LTA website, is here:
