Murray defeats Peniston in straight sets at Wimbledon


July 5, 2023

Andy Murray maintained his record of never losing in the Wimbledon first round with an encouraging victory over fellow Briton Ryan Peniston.

Two-time champion Murray, ranked 40th in the world, claimed the win on Centre Court 6-3 6-0 6-1.

British number one Cameron Norrie, a semi-finalist last year, also won 6-3 4-6 6-1 6-4 against Czech Tomas Machac.

Both Norrie and Murray, who could face each other in the fourth round, are still waiting to find out their next opponents.

Norrie, will play either American Christopher Eubanks or Brazil’s Thiago Monteiro, while Murray would face either Greek fifth seed Stefanos Tsitsipas or 2020 US Open champion Dominic Thiem.
