Where to watch live

Match is set to start at 1pm BST. Live coverage of the game is available on BBC One and BBC Two.

Overview

Roger Federer has been in scintillating form in this tournament thus far and comes into the game on the back of an impressive straight set win over Sam Querry 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 in one of the hottest days of the tournament in recent years. Federer got the better of the American with ease in a way that only the Swiss in his prime could have done.

The 17-time Grand Slam winner will be looking to add one more to his illustrious kitty of titles, but has to play at his very best throughout the tournament, with Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and others also giving it their best.

This is the second time that Federer will come up against Groth, having got the better of him in last year's US Open. The Swiss will be overwhelming favourites to move into the next round given his form but like Rafael Nadal, needs to be wary of a brilliant performance from his fellow opponent, which can run him close.
