Wimbledon 2014 Video: Preview of day three as Murray and Broady fly the British flag
Video: Paul Newman and Chris Jones look ahead to day three at Wimbledon 2014, discussing the matches of British hopefuls Andy Murray and Naomi Broady
Wednesday 25 June 2014
Reigning champion Andy Murray returns to action on day three at Wimbledon as the Scotsman takes on Wimbledon debutant Blaz Rola on Court 1.
Murray eased through his first round tie against David Goffin and while little is known about Rola's performance on grass, he will have asked Briton James Ward about the Slovenian's style of play, with Ward having recently beaten Rola at the French Open.
With Murray absent from Centre court today, Number One seed Novak Djokovic will be the main attraction as he takes on Radek Stepanek in the final match of the day.
Elsewhere, Naomi Broady hopes to continue her fairy tale Wimbledon journey as she faces formidable opponent Caroline Wozniacki
Broady, from Fred Perry's native Stockport, has had no Lawn Tennis Association funding for the past seven years because of a youthful indiscretion and almost gave up the sport a year ago.
