The match is scheduled to begin at 6pm BST. Live coverage will be on BBC One and BBC One 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.

Federer eased past Paolo Lorenzi in the first round at the No. 1 Court on Monday dismissing the 32-year-old Italian, 6-1, 6-1, 6-3, in 93 minutes. The 17-time Grand Slam winner now has 68 career wins at the All England Club and is aiming to avoid an upset similar to last year, where he failed to reach the third round.

Meanwhile, Muller set up his second round clash against the Swiss maestro after registering a hard-fought victory over the 46th ranked Julien Benneteau. The 31-year-old swiftly secured the first set, 6-4, but his French opponent dragged the subsequent sets into the tiebreaker for deciding the outcome.

The Luxembourgian sealed the second and third set, 7-6(6), 7-6(5), in what was his fourth victory in the last five meetings against Benneteau.

Federer, who already stated that he is confident of winning the title for the eighth time, is the favourite to progress into the next round. Barring an upset, the world no 4 will be up against the winner between Marcel Granollers and Santiago Giraldo in the third round on Saturday.


Federer holds a 3-0 lead over Muller in overall meetings. They have faced each other once in a Grand Slam event.
