Where to watch live

The match is set to start at 3:30pm BST. Live coverage of the tournament will be on BBC One and BBC Two.

Overview

World number one Novak Djokovic made his way into the third round with consummate ease after defeating Jarkko Nieminen in straight sets at 6-4 6-2 6-3. The Serbian will be desperate to purge his disappointment from the French Open when he was defeated by Stanislav Wawrinka in the final, in spite of being the best player by far in the tournament.

It was Djokovic's 650th tour level win in his career, elevating him among the greats in the game to the likes of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. The defending Wimbledon Champion revealed that he would rate the game against Nieminen at something around 7-8 on a scale of 10 and that he is capable of going further if the situation demands.

Meanwhile, Tomic overrode a difficult match against Pierre-Hugues Herbert to win the game in straight sets and progress into the third round. Tomic has been in brilliant form over the past few months, but would be considered a massive upset if he manages to get the better of Djokovic on grass.
