The game is set to start at 1pm BST. Live coverage of the match will be available on BBC One.

Overview

Murray took four sets to defeat Ivo Karlovic on 6 July and made his way into the quarter-finals of the tournament, which has already seen the ouster of Rafael Nadal. The world number three looked comfortable during most of the game, but did struggle in handling the big serves of the Croatian.

The Briton now faces Canadian Vasek Pospisil, who is making his first appearance in the quarter-finals of the Wimbledon. Murray will be favourite to come out of this encounter on top, with a mouth watering semi-final in prospect against Roger Federer, if the Swiss wins his match against Frenchman Gilles Simon.

Pospisil is familiar with playing on the big stage at Wimbledon after he won the doubles title in 2014 with Jack Sock, but it is new territory for him in the singles format. He will come into the game with nothing to lose and can go all out right from the start. He has failed to beat Murray on three previous occasions, but will be hoping to cause the biggest upset of the tournament and continue his run into the final four.
