Here is the order of play for the sixth day of play at Wimbledon. You can watch a daily highlights show live on Eurosport.

SATURDAY'S HIGHLIGHTS

  • Alex De Minaur (Australia) v Rafael Nadal (Spain)
  • Simona Halep (Romania) v Su-Wei Hsieh (Taiwan)
  • Angelique Kerber (Germany) v Naomi Osaka (Japan)
  • Kyle Edmund (GB) v Novak Djokovic (Serbia)

MATCH OF THE DAY

  • Angelique Kerber v Naomi Osaka

Sure, there’s Nadal and Halep on the bill… but who wants a one-sided contest?!

No, for pure action, the clash between the 11th and 18th seeds, Angelique Kerber and Naomi Osaka, has the ingredients to be a belter. And on the evidence so far, the Japanese player starts the marginal favourite, given she is yet to drop a set…

POTENTIAL UPSET OF THE DAY

  • Kyle Edmund v Novak Djokovic

OK, ‘upset’ is a bit of a stretch. This is not the Novak Djokovic that once ruled tennis, nor is this the Kyle Edmund that was stuck in Andy Murray’s shadow for so long. But it would still represent something of a surprise if the Brit can harness the crowd’s support and oust the three-time champion.
