Andy Murray will face Jordan Thompson in the first round of the Queen's grass-court tournament on Tuesday after the top-ranked player's original opponent, Aljaz Bedene, withdrew because of a wrist injury.

Organizers made the announcement at the start of play on Day 2 of the Wimbledon warm-up event in west London.

Thompson, an Australian player ranked No. 90, lost to Jeremy Chardy in qualifying on Sunday.
