Wimbledon order of play on Day Two, with Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams and Laura Robson all in action.
Centre Court (1200 GMT)
Serena Williams (USA x1) v Mandy Minella (LUX)
Six-time champion Serena Williams takes on Luxembourg’s relatively unknown Minella in what should be an easy victory for the World number 1. Serena has won 31 Grand Slams and is currently is reigning champion of the French Open, Wimbledon, the US Open and is the Olympic ladies singles champion. Can anyone beat her?
Novak Djokovic (SRB x1) v Florian Mayer (GER)
Djokovic, the current world number 1, is on fine form and won the Australian open earlier this year. ‘The Serbinator’ will be hoping to repeat his 2011 Wimbledon victory, and will fancy his chances after key rival Rafael Nadal was knocked out surprisingly by unknown Darcis yesterday. Mayer once reached number 18 in the world, but has only ever made the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam. His unorthodox style of play could disrupt his opponent, but don’t be surprised to see a straight sets victory for Djokovic.
David Ferrer (ESP x4) v Martin Alund (ARG)
Ferrer is currently ranked at number 4 in the world and reached the French Open final. The Spaniard is a serious force to be reckoned with and, although his favoured surface is clay, his natural talent means he is capable of beating anyone on any surface. Alund is ranked 101 in the world, a rank outsider who will find more joy in the Wimbledon cream teas than he will on the court. This should be an easy start to the tournament for Ferrer.
Court One (1200GMT)
Albert Ramos (ESP) v Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG x8)
Ramos has a world ranking of 38, while Del Potro is at 8. The 6ft 6′ Argentinian will expect to record a straight sets victory, and is looking to add a second Grand Slam victory to his 2009 US Open.
Maria Kirilenko (RUS x10) v Laura Robson (GBR)
Kirilenko is ranked world number 10, her career high, and recently saw success in the Olympics, picking up a Bronze medal. Robson is the nation’s tennis sweetheart. Still only 19 years of age, she is the current Number 1 ranked female tennis player in the UK, and won the country’s hearts when pairing with Andy Murray in the Olympics, picking up a silver medal in mixed doubles. But she has only ever reached the fourth round in a Grand Slam, and is ranked at 37 in the world; this match will be a tough test for the young Brit.
Martin Klizan (SVK) v Tomas Berdych (CZE x7)
Klizan is world number 36 with only 1 career title. Berdych is number 7, and is seen as an underperformer having never won a Grand-slam. Will this year be his first?
Court Two (1030GMT)
Heather Watson (GBR) v Madison Keys (USA)
Watson is the British number 2, and but the 21-year-old has plenty of potential. Her opposition is even younger at 18 and while both players have very low rankings, and neither has made even the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam. Hopefully the Brit will be spurred on by her home fans, and will be able to pull through for a victory.
Dmitry Tursunov (RUS) v Tommy Haas (GER x13)
Richard Gasquet (FRA x9) v Marcel Granollers (ESP)
Agnieszka Radwanska (POL x4) v Yvonne Meusburger (AUT)
Anna Schmiedlova (SVK) v Samantha Stosur (AUS x14)
Bernard Tomic (AUS) v Sam Querrey (USA x21)
Bethanie Mattek-Sands (USA) v Angelique Kerber (GER x7)
Gilles Simon (FRA x19) v Feliciano Lopez (ESP)
Court 12 (1030GMT)
Michaella Krajicek (NED) v Li Na (CHN x6)
Ryan Harrison (USA) v Jeremy Chardy (FRA x28)
Milos Raonic (CAN x17) v Carlos Berlocq (ARG)
Karolina Pliskova (CZE) v Nadia Petrova (RUS x13)
Court 18 (1030GMT)
Ivan Dodig (CRO) v Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER x16)
Roberta Vinci (ITA x11) v Chanelle Scheepers (RSA)
Grigor Dimitrov (BUL x29) v Simone Bolelli (ITA)
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (RUS x21) v Tsvetana Pironkova (BUL)
