Day Five

About this programme

Sue Barker presents the opening live coverage on the fifth day at the All England Club, where the third-round matches in the men's and ladies' singles are set to get under way, including Caroline Wozniacki v Ana Konjuh, Novak Djokovic v Gilles Simon and Marin Cilic v Tomas Berdych. The players in action today know that victory would see them gain the weekend off and book their places in Monday's fourth round, as the third Grand Slam tournament of the year, and the only one to be played on grass, gathers pace. Rain on the opening Thursday last year meant that some second-round matches were left until this day, and the Centre Court crowd were treated to a double dose of British talent. Laura Robson opened proceedings with her round-two fixture against Mariana Duque Marino, beating the qualifier in straight sets to move into the last 32, while Andy Murray was on last and also won in comfortable fashion in three sets against Tommy Robredo. With all of that going on, few eyes would have been on Court Two, where Marion Bartoli was quietly going about her business against Camila Giorgi, as she continued the path which would eventually lead to her winning the ladies' singles title against all expectations.
