The play is scheduled to begin at 3pm BST. Live coverage is on BBC Two and BBC Two HD. Live scores, regular updates, radio commentary and live streaming link will be available on Wimbledon's official website.


Murray remains on course to defend his title at the All England Club after cruising through to the fourth round on Friday. The third seed and home favourite thumped his 26-year-old Spanish opponent Roberto Bautista Agut, 6-2, 6-3, 6-2, in the previous round in straight sets, wrapping up the match in 95 minutes.

The 27-year-old Scot is now unbeaten in 10 matches in this competition and will be looking to maintain his winning run when he faces Anderson.

The 6ft 8" tall South African star triumphed over world no 15 Fabio Fognini after a marathon five-set battle lasting two hours and 45 minutes. The 28-year-old lost the first and the third set but showed composure and strength to oust the Italian, 4-6, 6-4, 2-6, 6-2, 6-1.

Murray has not dropped a single set in three matches while Anderson has not managed to achieve that so far. The defending champion is the favourite to progress into the quarterfinal and lest there be an upset, he will face the winner between Grigor Dimitrov and Leonardo Mayer on Wednesday.


Murray and Anderson are tied 1-1 in overall meetings.

The pair have only clashed once in a Grand Slam event, which was four years ago at the Australian Open, where the world no 5 won comfortably in straight sets.

What They Say

Andy Murray: "Kevin is a tough opponent. He doesn't serve as big as Isner or Karlovic but he is probably better from the back of the court. He has a better return game too. There might be more chances to break but equally he will return better and make more balls when you are serving. Like Roberto, he is playing the best tennis of his career. He is a big guy, with a big game and I will need to be sharp when I play him. I hope the fans keep making more noise, as it really helps me."

Kevin Anderson: "I was happy to see him win last year. He has won it now - so I guess there's no need for him to go on and win two in a row. Everybody talks about the walk going out there. There are not many people in this sport who get to do that. And then you add it's the fourth round, we're into the second week of the tournament and it's up against the defending champion, from Great Britain. So it will be a great experience but at the same time I am going there to win the match."
