In a duel with his compatriot, Djokovic wants to take the next step on the way to his seventh title at Wimbledon. The 35-year-old is still considered a top favourite. After the duel between Diane Parry and Ons Jabeur (from 2:30 p.m.), Djokovic intervened.
In the other places, the focus is on the German professionals. Kerber and Otte heat up Court No. 1 in their duels.
Around the same time as Kerber, Tatjana Maria starts the third round (from around 3:30 p.m.). In the second game on court no. 2, the 34-year-old meets Maria Sakkari, fifth in the world rankings.

INFO – Niemeier makes the second sentence
0: 3 behind, catching up to 3: 3 – and then Niemeier gives the sentence. It’s the game of breaks, both Tsurenko and Niemeier give away too many service games. The 22-year-old is too error-prone today, especially on the first serve. In total, the German has already made nine double mistakes. Tsurenko takes the chance and equalizes to make it 1-1 in sets.
INFO – ups and downs for Niemeier
The beginning of the second set is strongly reminiscent of the initial phase of the match. Significant is the point at 0:40, when Niemeier puts the ball out to the right without pressure from the opponent. A double mistake by the 22-year-old ends the game and seals the next break for Tsurenko – 1-0 in the second set for the Ukrainian.
INFO – How changed: Niemeier cools Tsurenko
What a turning point! Niemeier gets three breaks in a row, leaving Tsurenko no room to breathe. The German became more and more courageous and set the tone at times. Although she also had to give up a service game and fend off another breakball against herself – in the end there was a deserved 6: 4 after the first set.
