The Wimbledon third round will conclude (barring another marathon along the lines of Marin Cilic vs. John Isner) on Saturday. Dustin Brown is back in action after upsetting Rafael Nadal and the German will now face Viktor Troicki. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Ivo Karlovic are also part of the schedule.
One day prior to July 4 in the United States, it might as well have been American day in London. Two matches went the five-set distance on Thursday and both involved Americans. Denis Kudla outlasted Santiago Giraldo and John Isner is still in progress against Marin Cilic.
Andy Murray will be aiming for a place in the second week of Wimbledon when he takes the court against Andreas Seppi on Friday. Roger Federer is also in third-round action, facing Sam Groth.
