Andy Murray takes on Blaz Rola at the No. 1 Court of the All England Club, London, on Wednesday to book a place in the third round of the 2014 Wimbledon Championships.

Where to Watch Live

The match is set to begin at 1pm BST. Live coverage is on BBC Two and BBC Two HD. Radio commentary of the game is on BBC Radio 5 Live. Live scores, regular updates, radio commentary and live streaming link will be available on Wimbledon's official website.


Defending champion Murray cruised past David Goffin in the first round of the 2014 Wimbledon Championships in straight sets. The home favourite triumphed in the opening two sets, 6-1, 6-4, with relative ease but was made to work hard in the third to seal the match.

The 23-year old Belgian fought hard and took it to 5-5 before the world No. 5 powered his way back to win the final set 7-5, securing his eighth straight victory at SW19 needing a little over two hours.

In the second round, the 27-year-old Scot is pitted against Rola, who is currently at 92 in ATP rankings. The Slovenian overcame Pablo Andujar in straight sets 6-3, 6-1, 6-4, sending the 28-year-old Spaniard crashing out of the competition in 101 minutes.

The 23-year-old will be looking to cause the biggest upset of the tournament but it looks unlikely given the motivation and support Murray has on his home soil.

The winner of this clash will be involved in the third round action against the winner of the match between Roberto Bautista Agut and Jan Hernych.


Wednesday's meeting at the All England club between Murray and Rola will be the first between them.

What They Say

Andy Murray: "He's a big guy. He takes chances. He goes for his shots. He probably doesn't have much grass-court experience because he hasn't been on the Tour that long. He's going to do well, for sure, because he has weapons. I haven't seen him play loads. I saw him play his match against James [Ward] at the French Open. But he's a tricky opponent with his style and being a big guy. He can generate power from the back of the court. He moves pretty well for a big guy too."

Blaz Rola: "When I saw the draw, when I saw that potentially I could play the second round against Andy, my motivation was off the charts. I don't think I actually realize where I am going to play. I am going to walk up that stand and see how many people are actually watching this because I actually really never stepped on the Centre Court here. Nothing can prepare me for this. Hopefully I don't poop my pants and don't play well. It would be a very, very big shock (if I could win)."
