Murray steps up Wimbledon title bid

Andy Murray will return to Wimbledon today as he continues his bid for a second title at the All England Club.

The Scot faces Roberto Bautista Agut from Spain on Centre Court after matches featuring tennis aces Novak Djokovic and Venus Williams.

Murray is the only British player left in the singles tournaments after British number one Heather Watson's campaign ended yesterday.

Rain is likely to fall on Wimbledon today but, with the roof on Centre Court keeping everyone dry, Murray's match should not be affected by the showers.

People planning on coming to SW19 to watch the fifth day of action from the hill will get some dry and sunny intervals, forecasters said.

Google Maps appear to have cleared up what the area - formerly known as Henman Hill after Tim Henman - should be called.

Some tennis fans call it Murray Mound while some refer to it as Murray Mount.

But it is Murray Mound that appears on Google Maps, and a spokesman for Google said it was added to the site on July 7 last year - the day Murray won his Wimbledon title.

It was added by a user on Map Maker, a tool where people can add places to Google Maps.
