Local hero Andy Murray is one of the main attractions for fans at Wimbledon today, with the fourth seed due to come up against Nikolay Davydenko on Centre Court. The Scotsman hired Ivan Lendl as his coach late last year as he attempts to break the stranglehold of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer at the top of the men's game.
