Andy Murray has been announced as one of the initial recipients of a Wimbledon wild card.

The two-time champion, who played just his third ATP singles match of the year at Queen’s Club on Tuesday, is ranked down at 124, which is outside the cut-off for direct qualification.

The Dunblane-born star, who has also won two Olympic Gold medals, will be joined by fellow British players Katie Boulter, Jodie Burrage, Harriet Dart, Samantha Murray Sharan, Francesca Jones, Liam Broady, Jay Clarke and 19-year-old Jack Draper, who won his maiden ATP Tour match at Queen’s on Monday.

Five-time champion Venus Williams and Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz have also been given main draw wild cards.

Wimbledon 2021 will begin on Monday, June 28.
