Wimbledon order of play on show courts the fifth day of the 2013 tournament at the All England Club
(x denotes seeding):
Centre Court (1200BST)
Laura Robson (GBR) v Mariana Duque-Marino (COL)
- Laura Robson returns to centre court for her third round match v Colombian Mariana Duque-Marino. Neither have never made it this far at Wimbledon before, and will be aiming high after the numerous withdrawals from so many seeded players. These two players haven’t met in competition before.
Nicolas Almagro (ESP x15) v Jerzy Janowicz (POL x24)
- This is Almagro’s fourth year at Wimbledon, and the third round is furthest he has ever reached. Janowicz is young at only 22, and has also never made it past this stage. These two met once before down under, with Almagro winning in straight sets.
Tommy Robredo (ESP x32) v Andy Murray (GBR x2)
- The UK’s current number 1 is back for his third round match against 31-year-old Tommy Robredo. The two have met four times before, each winning twice. Robredo has never made it past the third round at Wimbledon, while Murray lost to Federer in the final in 2012.
Court One (1200BST)
David Ferrer (ESP x4) v Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP)
- More Spanish players on court today as David Ferrer is up against Roberto Bautista Agut. Los Chicos have never met before in a competition, but the odds are on the fourth seed. With Nadal and Federer being knocked out, Ferrer is now third favorite with the bookies.
Petra Kvitova (CZE x8) v Ekaterina Makarova (RUS 25)
- Kvitova won Wimbledon in 2011, and enjoys playing on grass courts. She has fast left-handed serves and in 2011 she aced her opponents 36 times on the way to her Wimbledon victory. At only 23, she has a bright future ahead of her. Makarova is ranked fifth in the world for doubles, and won the French open with her partner Elena Vesnina earlier this year. She is not as successful in singles, but is still a decent player and a force to be reckoned with.
Viktor Troicki (SRB) v Mikhail Youzhny (RUS x20)
- Troicki (Troyt-skee) certainly enjoys causing upsets, often beating players ranked much higher than him in Grand slams. Youzhny has twice reached the semifinals of the US open, and has a unique backhand which is worth looking out for. These two have met five times, with Troicki winning on three of the occasions.
Court Two (1030BST)
Kaia Kanepi (EST x29) v Angelique Kerber (GER x7)
Marion Bartoli (FRA x15) v Camila Giorgi (ITA)
Ernests Gulbis (LAT) v Fernando Verdasco (ESP)
Court Three (1030BST)
Grega Zemlja (SLO) leads Grigor Dimitrov (BUL x29) 3-6, 7-6 (7/4), 3-6, 6-4, 9-8
Jurgen Melzer (AUT) v Sergiy Stakhovsky (UKR)
Sloane Stephens (USA x17) v Petra Cetkovska (CZE)
Court 12 (1030 BST)
Alexandr Dolgopolov (UKR x26) leads Santiago Giraldo (COL) 6-4, 3-0
Alize Cornet (FRA x29) v Flavia Pennetta (ITA)
Juan Monaco (ARG x22) v Kenny De Schepper (FRA)
Court 18 (1030BST)
Jimmy Wang (TPE) v Tommy Haas (GER x13)

Lukasz Kubot (POL) v Benoit Paire (FRA x25)
