Shaquille O'Neal enjoys himself in the royal box in Centre Court at the All England Club.

Andy Murray had a special spectator at his first match as Wimbledon’s defending champion. Former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal and his girlfriend, Laticia Rolle, made an appearance in the royal box at the All England Club’s Centre Court.

Murray cruised past Belgian David Goffin 6-1, 6-4, 7-5 on Monday to advance to the second round.

This isn’t the first time this year that celebrities have taken in a tennis match or two. At the French Open, Prince made an appearance at Court Philippe Chatrier to watch Rafael Nadal.
