The Spaniard returns to the court as he continues his bid for a calendar grand slam

Wimbledon: Andy Murray throws underarm serve to delight Centre Court crowd

Rafael Nadal returns to Centre Court this afternoon as the Spaniard takes on Botic van de Zandschulp.

The 36-year-old, who is continuing his bid for the calendar grand slam, looked a little rusty in his first two matches but a third-round victory over Lorenzo Sonego was Nadal’s most impressive victory of the tournament yet.

Van de Zandschulp reached the quarter-finals at last year’s US Open but the fourth round already marks his best run at Wimbledon, having beaten French veteran Richard Gasquet in four sets.

The winner will face either Taylor Fritz or Jason Kubler in the quarter-finals.

How can I watch Wimbledon on TV and is there a live stream?

The BBC will once again be providing full coverage of Wimbledon, in what is Sue Barker’s final year of presenting the Championships. Coverage will begin on BBC Two at 11am BST, with BBC One then starting from 1:45pm. The action will also be available to watch on the BBC iPlayer while the BBC Sport website will be showing action from around the grounds. Today at Wimbledon presented by Clare Balding will round up the best of the action each night at 8:30pm on BBC Two.

Nadal vs Van De Zandschulp is third up on Centre Court, with play beginning at 1:30pm, meaning Nadal could take to court between 6pm and 7pm.
