The match starts at 5:30pm BST. Live coverage is on BBC One, BBC Two and on the red button . Real-time internet updates are available on the Roland Garros official website.


Thomaz Bellucci was no match for Nadal as the Spaniard sealed a comfortable straight-set victory over the South American in the first round clash on 30 June. The former world number one won in straight sets 6-4, 6-2, 6-4.

Brown did not have a similar run in the opening match of the Wimbledon as he came from behind after losing the opening set to defeat Taiwanese tennis player Lu Yen-hsun in four sets 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, 6-4.

Nadal is aware of the threat possessed by Brown as he is likely to be cautious in his approach against the German.

The two have faced each other only once in Halle and Brown managed to come out victorious on that occasion by registering a straight set victory. Nadal will be looking to bounce back after his disappointing loss to Novak Djokovic in the 2015 Roland Garros quarter final clash.
