London, UK, 22 June 2014 |

Seven Australians will take to the lawns of the All England Club on Monday as first round action kicks off at the Wimbledon in 2014.

All three Australian women in the draw – 17th-seed Sam Stosur, Casey Dellacqua and wildcard Jarmila Gajdosova – will play their respective matches while four Aussie men will join them on the schedule of play for Monday.

Tough opening round assignments await Marinko Matosevic and qualifier Sam Groth – each face seeded opponents – while 2011 quarterfinalist Bernard Tomic and qualifier Luke Saville tackle unseeded opposition.

The other Aussies in the draw – Lleyton Hewitt, Matt Ebden, Nick Kyrgios and James Duckworth – will play their first round matches on Tuesday.
