Djokovic and Schwartzman with plenty to play for

Novak Djokovic likes records and he is on the verge of winning his 36th Masters 1000 title if he is successful in the final of the Italian Open at the Foro Italica today, to edge him one ahead of Rada Nadal.

Wimbledon | Manic Monday

What to look out for today

Manic Monday at Wimbledon, which dawns cloudy, with temperatures reaching 21 degrees, sees all the big names are in action.

15-year-old Cori Gauff’s fairytale Wimbledon continues when she faces former World No 1 Simona Halep.

Top seed Ashleigh Barty, Serena Williams and Britain’s last remaining singles hope Johanna Konta are all in action, as well as Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.

Centre Court, 1pm start

  • Joao Sousa v Rafael Nadal
  • Johanna Konta v Petra Kvitova
  • Matteo Berrettini v Roger Federer

No 1 Court, 1pm start

  • Serena Williams v Carla Suarez Navarro
  • Simona Halep v Cori Gauff
  • Novak Djokovic v Ugo Humbert

Look out also for:

No 2 Court, 11am start

  • Ashleigh Barty v Alison Riske
  • Karolina Muchova v Karolina Pliskova

No 3 Court, 11am start

  • David Goffin v Fernando Verdasco

Brit Watch

Konta is the only one flying the flag for Britain now in main singles draws, after Dan Evans and Harriet Dart bit the dust on Saturday. The 28-year-old has Centre Court billing against Petra Kvitova.

Jamie Murray & Bethanie Matek-Sands are in mixed doubles action this evening on Court 12, while 3 British and 2 girls play their first round junior matches around the grounds.

Pick of the day

Konta has got a huge job on her hands if she is to make the quarter-finals. Kvitova, a two-time champion at SW19, has yet to drop a set so far and has spent just over 3-and-a-half hours on court, but the battling qualities the Brit showed when coming back from one-set down against Sloane Stephens will stand her in good stead against the Czech, who is also hampered by an arm injury. A three-setter may be on the cards.

Potential Upset

Petra Martic has steadily gone about her business at Wimbledon with deciding-set victories over Jennifer Brady, Anastasia Potapova and Danielle Collins. The Croatian has had a good season and won her first WTA title in Istanbul in April. 8 seed Elina Svitolina has beaten her in their last three matches, including twice at the French Open, but this will be their first meeting on grass. The Ukrainian was going out until Margarita Gasparyan retired with injury in the second round and only just squeezed past Maria Sakkari in the last, meaning World No 24 Martic could pull off a shock.
