Djokovic’s match is followed by Heather Watson’s third-round clash against No3 seed Agnieszka Radwanska. Roger Federer then concludes the singles play on Centre Court with his clash against France’s Julien Benneteau.

Elsewhere, 2004 champion Maria Sharapova takes on Su-Wei Hsieh on No1 Court, before Kim Clijsters faces Vera Zvonareva.
