Simona Halep and Novak Djokovic are both expected to progress on Wimbledon Day 5, while Kevin Anderson faces a tricky opponent.

Novak Djokovic will take on the unfancied Hubet Hurkacz as he looks to progress into the fourth round and continue his charge to win a second consecutive Wimbledon for the second time in his career.

Fourth seed Kevin Anderson faces a tough draw against Guido Pella on Centre Court while on Court One, before Djokovic's clash, Hseih Su-Wei faces Karolina Pliskova in the pick of the women's matches.

FRIDAY'S HIGHLIGHTS

Order of play on the main showcourts on the fifth day of Wimbledon on Friday.

  • (4) Kevin Anderson v (26) Guido Pella
  • (7) Simona Halep v Victoria Azarenka
  • (28) Hsieh Su-Wei v (3) Karolina Pliskova
  • (1) Novak Djokovic v Hubert Hurkacz

MATCH OF THE DAY

  • (4) Kevin Anderson v (26) Guido Pella

Ranked eighth in the world, Kevin Anderson is seeded fourth at Wimbledon and the 33-year-old will want to go one better than he did last year, when he was a losing finalist against Novak Djokovic. His opponent is 29-year-old Guido Pella, whose best performance at Wimbledon also came in last year's tournament, when he was knocked out in the third round.

POTENTIAL UPSET OF THE DAY

  • (7) Simona Halep v Victoria Azarenka

Simona Halep has been the best ranked women's player in tennis before, and there is a chance that she will make it back to the top of the leaderboard before the end of her career. Seeded seventh, she should in theory reach the quarter-finals, at least, but against an experienced player like Azarenka - and Halep's occasional freezes - this could easily be her last appearance of the tournament.
