Wimbledon Day 7 | Murray faces another unpredictable opponent

Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov has prime billing on Centre Court against seven-times Wimbledon champion Roger Federer and while he is relishing that prospect he savoured the silence of Sunday. "It wasn't as easy maybe as it looks like".

SSE, the energy behind Andy Murray Live 2017 returns for a second year to The SSE Hydro in Glasgow.

Lendl, who coaches world number one Andy Murray, said that the Briton, Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic have been able to stay at the top of men's tennis due to their mental strength.

Paire threatened to take the first set when he led 4-2 but was eventually put off by Murray's advances to the net and hitting winners.

The good thing is I was hitting the ball better on Monday, was more aggressive and was moving better, all of which gives me confidence.

"I'm just here, happy to have actually made it into the second week, happy to come through three battles this week".

Earlier, Croat Marin Cilic demolished Roberto Bautista Agut 6-2, 6-2, 6-2.

"That's how people win tournaments - they fight".

Murray will play Sam Querrey on Wednesday. Querrey faces unseeded Kevin Anderson of South Africa in a contest of two of the game's biggest servers. "That's something we've talked about at Wimbledon for the last 10 years", Caroline Wozniacki said. I didn't feel like I played so well, not loads of rhythm in the first two matches. Her Wimbledon debut came a few months before Konjuh was born.

"This day is always a tough day", said 37-year-old American Williams.

Meanwhile the new French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko was on the 1,000-seater Court 12 show court.

Konta became the first British female to reach the Wimbledon quarter-finals since Jo Durie in 1984 after another impressive display in beating Garcia of France.

"I think he has no problem", said Paire.

"To be honest, I enjoy watching more men's tennis", she said. "You just see the green wall because it's the back of the court". Falling into a love-40 hole in the ninth game, Paire was in prime position for a backhand volley but badly bungled the shot wide donating the break at love as Murray served for the set at 5-4.

Murray soon settled and got the match back on an equal footing with a break in the eighth game but he was forced into a tie-break after failing to convert two set points on the Paire serve.

The 31-year-old won this year's French Open without dropping a set and he has kept up that run here - meaning he has now won 28 consecutive sets at the grand slams this year.

Paire has left his mark on Wimbledon in more ways than one; after being knocked out here in 2013 he had smashed up every racket in his bag out of sheer frustration. However, she won the girls' title at the All England Club in 2014. "But I've managed it well and I think I've played some good stuff. I'm doing well so hopefully I keep it up". No. 4 Elina Svitolina, and No. 6 Johanna Konta vs.

What time is Andy Murray playing at Wimbledon today? Angelique Kerber, the world No. 1, faces Spain's Garbine Muguruza a round or two earlier than either would have liked - Muguruza is seeded 14th but has looked unsafe through the first week.

In the quarterfinals, Rybarikova will face Vandeweghe, while Halep will play Konta.
