London - Top seed and world No 1 Andy Murray will have a new opponent for the opening match of his title defence at the Queen's Club Championship on Tuesday after fellow Briton Aljaz Bedene withdrew with a wrist injury. 

Lucky loser Jordan Thompson of Australia will replace him in the third match on centre-court. 

Thompson, 23, who is ranked 90th in the world, reached the final of the Surbiton challenger event last week. He and Murray have never previously met. 

British media reported that Murray will donate his winnings from the tournament - which could amount to almost $443 520.00 - to a fund helping victims of the Grenfell Tower fire in which more than 75 people have died. 

The tower block is only a few kilometres away from the Queen's Club in West London.
