History is being made today at the Aegon Championships as Britain has three players through to the second round which hasn’t happened since 2005 when current British Number one Andy Murray, Tim Henman and Greg Rusedski were all in the same position. Top seed and defending champion Andy Murray will face a British opponent after he defeated Nicolas Mahut 7-6, 7-6 in the first round. Murray last played against a British opponent when he lost to Henman in Bangkok back in 2006, ten years later he’s up against Aljaz Bedene at Queen’s Club this afternoon.
Ranked 58th in the world and British number two, Bedene who was born in Slovakia gained UK citizenship last year. British number three Kyle Edmund starts play at Queen’s today against Paul-Henri Mathieu from France after his amazing first round win against eighth seed Gilles Simon also from France 6-4, 3-6, 6-1.
