He (Basilashvili) is ranked among the top 30 players in the world and although he only played a few matches, I won. Previous No. 1 worldwide for an enthusiastic audience.

Two-time Olympic champion Murray is struggling to get back to his best after hip surgery in January 2018 and a recent thigh injury.

In the next stage, he will face the Frenchman Arthur Rinderknech (109) or the German Oscar Otti (151), both of whom are from the qualifiers.
