Muzza, 32, and new partner Herbert will play Romanian Marius Copil and France’s Ugo Humbert in the opening stage. The doubles competition begins on Wednesday.
Yet looking further into the draw, should he win his opening two matches, there is the tantalising prospect of an all-family affair with Jamie, 33, in the third round.
Murray recently celebrated a glorious comeback to the top-level after winning the Queen’s doubles title earlier this month.
He was on the brink of retirement after breaking down in tears when revealing the pain he had in his hip.

It was Murray’s first doubles success for eight years and he will be hoping to continue his form at Wimbledon next week.
The challenge won’t be daunting for a man who has achieved so much success at the home of tennis.
Murray has been crowned the Grand Slam singles champ on two occasions – the first in 2013 and then yet again three years later.
