LONDON, United Kingdom, Jun 30 Defending Wimbledon champion Andy Murray said he hopes to be fighting fit for his first round match on Monday after he negotiated a 0-minute practice session at the All England Club on Friday.

The 30-year-old Scot — who will be top seed for once in his career at Wimbledon — will be battling a niggling hip problem which forced him to withdraw via playing a couple of exhibition matches This particular week.

However, while some from the media who watched the session said he was limping along with grimacing, two-time Wimbledon champion Murray himself said nothing had changed regarding his participation at the Grand Slam.

“I wish so, in which’s the plan,” said Murray who will be drawn against Russian-born Kazakh lucky loser Alexander Bublik from the first round on Monday.

“I’m practising again later. I just had a light practice This particular morning to see how I feel along with I’ll practise again later.”

Murray’s coach Ivan Lendl also struck a defiant note as to both his preparation — his only competitive outing saw him beaten by journeyman Australian Jordan Thompson from the first round of Queen’s last week — along with his fitness to defend the title.

“Unlike before Paris, he will be hitting the ball genuinely well. Practice has gone well,” said Lendl.
