Novak Djokovic takes on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the fourth round of the 2014 Wimbledon Championships on Centre Court in the All England Club, London, on Tuesday.

Where to Watch Live

The play is set to begin at 6pm BST. Live coverage is on BBC One or BBC Two. Live scores, regular updates, radio commentary and the live streaming link will be available on Wimbledon's official website.


Djokovic comes into the fourth round match against Tsonga after an easy 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 win over Gilles Simon. However, it was not an uneventful day as the world number 2 suffered an injury scare mid-way through the game after he slipped and fell on his shoulder. He required a ten-minute medical time-out and fortunately was able to continue and pull off a convincing win.

The Serbian is looking to make it into his 21st consecutive quarter-finals in grand slam tournaments.

Meanwhile, Tsonga a two-time semi-finalist at Wimbledon will be looking to be only the fifth player to beat Djokovic multiple times in a grand slam. After playing two five-set matches in the opening two rounds of the tournament, the Frenchman had a relatively easy 6-2, 6-2, 7-5 win over Jimmy Wang of Taipei.

For either player a win could set up another potentially tricky encounter with Croat Marin Cilic in the quarter-finals. And with Andy Murray's potential meeting with the up and coming Grigor Dimitrov if they get through their fourth round opponents, we may not get to see the much anticipated re-match of last year's final between Murray and Djokovic.


Djokovic has a 12-5 lead over Stepanek in the overall meetings. The pair has met in five grand slam events, with Djokovic winning on four occasions and Tsonga winning one. The Serb holds a 5-0 lead over the Frenchman in the last five meetings between the pair.

Wimbledon History

What They Say

Novak Djokovic: [on Jo-Wilfried Tsonga] "I know what threat he can cause on this surface, I expect him to serve well. I think that's his advantage. Obviously the serve in any corner. Coming to the net, he's a very aggressive player. If he's on, if he feels good on the certain day, he can beat anybody really."

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga: "It's going to be a new opportunity for me to play against one of the best players in the world. That's what I'm looking for to make me a better player."
