Wimbledon 2019 order of play and results for men’s events: Djokovic will return to action

Wimbledon is officially in full swing on the first Friday of the tournament. Once again, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are the three favourites for success in the men’s event. Top seed Djokovic started his defence of title by beating Germany’s Philipp Kohlschreiber in straight sets as the pair opened up the tournament on Centre Court. The 32-year-old Serb was never in serious trouble during a 6-3 7-5 6-3 win. The Serb cruised into the Wimbledon third round as he needed just one hour and 33 minutes to beat American Denis Kudla 6-3 6-2 6-2. Djokovic will face Hubert Hurkacz in the third round. Federer moved through the gears to win 3-6 6-1 6-2 6-2 on Centre Court against South African debutant Lloyd Harris and reach the Wimbledon second round. Federer beat British wildcard Jay Clarke in straight sets to reach Wimbledon's third round. The second seed, 37, was tested in the second set but otherwise dominated the 20-year-old, ranked 169th, to win 6-1 7-6 (7-3) 6-2. Third seed Nadal faced fewer problems against Japanese qualifier Yuichi Sugita, winning 6-3 6-1 6-3. The No. 3 seed and two-time champion outlasted Kyrgios, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(5), 7-6(3), in a circus-like atmosphere on Centre Court to advance to the third round.

Novak Djokovic V Hubert Hurkacz

Novak Djokovic will face Hubert Hurkacz at a Grand Slam for the second time this year after beating the Pole in the first round at Roland-Garros last month. The 32-year-old Serb has not lost to a player ranked as low as Hubert Hurkacz at Wimbledon since 2008 to Marat Safin. Hurkacz can be immensely pleased with his performances so far at Wimbledon as this is his most successful Grand Slam to date. According to Vbet, Novak Djokovic is the favourite to win the match. Novak Djokovic: 1.02 Hubert Hurkacz: 22.00 Here is the latest order of play: CENTRE COURT - SHOW COURT - 13:00 START No.1 COURT - SHOW COURT - 13:00 START No.2 COURT - SHOW COURT - 11:00 START No.3 COURT - SHOW COURT - 11:00 START COURT 12 - SHOW COURT - 11:00 START COURT 18 - SHOW COURT - 11:00 START
