最後更新於.從網球部分

卡梅隆-諾里和希瑟-沃森在溫布爾登中周日的第一個預定比賽日進行了他們的大滿貫16強首秀。

沃特森在第三輪比賽中直落兩盤戰勝斯洛文尼亞選手Kaja Juvan後,於北京時間14:10在中心球場首先面對比利時選手Jule Niemeier。

"她是一個很好的球員,真的,真的很好的球員,"沃森在談到世界排名第97位的Niemeier時說。

"當我[在蒙特雷]和她比賽時,她在前100名之外。我記得我對我的團隊說,'這個女孩很快就會進入前100名'。這將是一場艱難的比賽。"

'如果我在分數上落後,觀眾可以帶我度過難關'

諾里在6-4 6-1 6-0擊敗美國人史蒂夫-約翰遜之後,在塔特亞娜-瑪麗亞和耶萊娜-奧斯塔彭科於13:00在一號球場開始比賽之後,與他的同胞湯米-保羅進行了比賽。

26歲的九號種子諾里克服了西班牙人Pablo Andujar和Jaume Munar的挑戰,他在兩盤落後的情況下反敗為勝,然後在第三輪比賽中擊敗了約翰遜。

他說:"當你有了勢頭,一切都在按你的方式進行時,它(主場觀眾的支持)可以幫助你,"。

"反過來說,如果我在比分上落後,他們可以帶我度過難關。

"我正試圖儘可能地利用它來發揮我的優勢。"

當你第一次面對某人時,會有一種挑戰

頭號種子德約科維奇繼續衛冕他的男單冠軍,對手是荷蘭通配符蒂姆-范里霍芬。

塞爾維亞人在第一輪對陣韓國人權純佑的比賽中沒有丟過一盤。

但是,儘管德約科維奇和范里霍芬從他們的青少年時代就認識,但他們之前從未在球場上相遇。

"當你第一次面對某人時,有一個挑戰,那個人顯然沒有什麼損失,"世界排名第三的人說。

"你不知道他的比賽,所以你必須適應和調整。所以你必須做你的功課,分析他之前的比賽,儘量收集更多的信息,這樣你就可以為比賽做好戰術準備。"

周日將是紀念中心球場一百周年的焦點,13:30開始有30分鐘的慶祝活動。

屆時將有前冠軍的遊行,Freya Ridings的現場音樂表演,並有機會重溫過去100年的神奇時刻。

在其他地方,19歲的五號種子阿爾卡拉斯將在中心球場第二場比賽中對陣10號種子、意大利的揚尼克-辛納,勝者將在四分之一決賽中對陣德約科維奇,這可能是一場令人垂涎的比賽。

突尼斯的Jabeur在一號球場排名第三,對陣24號種子Elise Mertens,爭奪一個八強席位。

Cameron Norrie and Heather Watson make their last-16 Grand Slam debuts at Wimbledon's first scheduled day of play on middle Sunday.

Watson faces Belgian Jule Niemeier first up on Centre at 14:10 BST after her straight-set victory over Slovenian Kaja Juvan in the third round.

"She's a good player, really, really good player," Watson said of world number 97 Niemeier.

"When I played her [in Monterrey] she was outside the top 100. I remember saying to my team, 'This girl will be in the top 100 in no time'. It'll be a hard match."

'If I was down in the score, the crowd can bring me through it'

Norrie follows up his 6-4 6-1 6-0 demolition of American Steve Johnson by playing his countryman Tommy Paul after Tatjana Maria and Jelena Ostapenko get proceedings on Court One under way at 13:00.

Ninth seed Norrie, 26, overcame the challenge of Spaniards Pablo Andujar and Jaume Munar, where he fought back from two sets to one down to win, before beating Johnson in the third round.

"When you've got the momentum and everything is going your way, it [the home crowd support] can help," he said.

"On the flip side of that, if I was down in the score, they can bring me through it.

"I'm trying to use it to my advantage as much as I can." • None Alerts: Get tennis news sent to your phone

'There is a challenge when you're facing someone for the first time'

Top seed Djokovic continues the defence of his men's title against Dutch wildcard Tim van Rijthoven.

The Serb has not dropped a set since his first-round match against South Korean Kwon Soon-woo.

But despite knowing each other since their junior days, Djokovic and Van Rijthoven have never met on court before.

"There is a challenge when you're facing someone for the first time, that someone obviously has not much to lose," the world number three said.

"You don't know his game so you kind of have to adapt and adjust. So you have to do your homework, analyse his matches previously, try to gather as much information so you can prepare yourself tactically for the match."

Sunday will be the focal point for marking the centenary of Centre Court with a 30-minute celebration starting at 13:30.

There will be a parade of former champions, a live musical performance from Freya Ridings and a chance to relive magic moments from the the last 100 years.

Elsewhere, 19-year-old fifth seed Alcaraz faces 10th seed Jannik Sinner, of Italy, second on Centre Court, with the winner setting up a potentially mouth-watering quarter-final against Djokovic.

Jabeur, of Tunisia, is third on Court One and takes on 24th seed Elise Mertens for a place in the last eight. • None Who made the Bayeux Tapestry and where?
