Crowd darlings set for support

BRITISH No1 Andy Murray and wildcard Laura Robson today begin their respective attempts for Wimbledon success, with the former hoping home support can inspire him to a first grand slam title.

“I think that when you look over the years it has normally helped players raise their game by being at home,” said Murray, who has been drawn against Russia’s former world No3 Nikolay Davydenko.

Robson faces Italy’s Francesca Schiavone, winner of the 2010 French Open.
