Murray has seamlessly re-discovered his form over the last two weeks, winning the AEGON Championships at Queen's and looking comfortable at the Hurlingham club just a short while after he was forced to miss the French Open through injury.
But as the British number one knows all too well, playing at Wimbledon is a totally different issue.
The second seed had to endure three consecutive narrow semi-final defeats at SW19 before he finally made it through to the final, and even then he had to settle for second best after being outclassed by Roger Federer.
And with matches sometimes stretching to four hours or more at the championship, Murray cannot be certain how his back will respond to playing in a major until he goes through a punishing five-set match.
The Scot said: "It is always tough to know until you are in a long five-set match - or if you are having to recover from a five-set match, that can sometimes be harder than the match itself. The recovering is tough."
It would be a huge upset if Murray had to go through a five-set game until the quarter-finals after he was given a relatively favourable draw.
The Scot will play Germany's Benjamin Becker in the first round and he then could face James Ward, Tommy Robrero and Janko Tipsarevic before taking on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the last eight.
Rafael Nadal or Federer are likely to be waiting for Murray in the last four while the draw was kindest to number one seed Novak Djokovic, who looks to have a clear run to the final.
Ward, meanwhile, is desperate to beat Taiwan's Yen-Hsun Lu to set up a second-round tie against Murray.
"If I win on Monday then I get the bonus of playing Andy," the Londoner told Press Association Sport.
"It would be my first time on Centre Court. I would be playing Andy Murray. What more could I ask for? It would be a great day."
The chances of a British woman making it to the second week look as remote as ever Laura Robson will play 10th seed Maria Kirilenko while wild card Johanna Konta faces former US Open finalist Jelena Jankovic.
The other two home wild cards, Tara Moore and Samantha Murray, play Kaia Kanepi and Camila Giorgi respectively.
British number two Heather Watson was pitted against America's world number 53 Madison Keys while Elena Baltacha and Anne Keothavong play Flavia Pennetta and Garbine Muguruza respectively.
Defending champion Serena Williams, meanwhile, was drawn against Luxembourg's Mandy Minella. The American has been kept apart from Maria Sharapova, meaning the two may meet in the final.
