As is traditional for the defending champion, Murray will open proceedings on Centre Court at 1300 BST, taking on Belgium's world number 104 David Goffin.

British number two Dan Evans, Davis Cup hero James Ward, teenager Kyle Edmund and Dan Cox will also play in the men's singles on day one, while British number three Johanna Konta and Naomi Broady will be in action in the ladies' draw.

Top seed Novak Djokovic will also be on Centre Court on Monday. Last year's runner-up will face Andrey Golubev in the final match of the day after ladies' second seed Li Na has taken on Paula Kania.

Former world number one Victoria Azarenka, only just back from injury lay-off, will get things started on Court One. She faces former semi-finalist Mirjana Lucic-Baroni.

Queen's Club winner Grigor Dimitrov then faces Ryan Harrison before Jo-Wilfried Tsonga meets Jurgen Melzer.

Five-time winner Venus Williams will be out on Court Two, along with former finalists Tomas Berdych and Agnieszka Radwanska, plus Evans, while Court Three will feature former champion Petra Kvitova and Ward.
