LONDON (AP) — Andy Murray has received a standing ovation as he returns to Centre Court to begin the defense of his Wimbledon title.

Murray, who last year became the first British player to win the men's trophy at the All England Club in 77 years, drew huge cheers as he walked onto court Monday to face Belgium's David Goffin in the first Centre Court match of the grass-court Grand Slam.

Murray waved to the crowd with his left hand and he strode onto the most famous court in tennis on a cloudy day.

Former Wimbledon champion John McEnroe, doing commentary for the BBC, says "I don't know about you, but I felt chills."

Sitting in Murray's box was new coach Amelie Mauresmo.
