Roger Federer, Serena Williams and Rafa Nadal all play while Novak Djokovic will play on Court No.1 after getting booed by the Centre Court crowd on Saturday night.
This year is the 10th anniversary of one of the best Wimbledon finals in history when Rafa Nadal beat Federer in the gloom to win his first title. They are seeded to meet again this year and the world’s top two have yet to drop a set this year.
The defending champion faces world No.26 Adrian Mannarion in the first match on Centre Court today – and his biggest threat to reaching a 12th final here apperas to be Milos Raonic in the semi-finals
Stat attack: Federer is the only semi-finalist from last year left in the competition in either the men’s or women’s competition.

Rafa Nadal has a tougher side of the draw. The world No.1 faces world No.93 Jiri Vesely today but after that he will have to get past Juan Martin Del Potro and a revitalised Novak Djokovic to reach his fifth final here. The Spaniard has not been past the fourth round since reaching his last final here in 2011.
The 2009 US Open champion Del Potro has yet to drop a set and is looking strong again after years of injury problems.
Novak Djokovic certainly made the headlines when Saturday night fever struck Centre Court as he was booed for a time violation and then for protesting a decision in his victory over British No.1 Kyle Edmund. But the hostile atmosphere fired up the Serb and he showed glimpses of his old form in his four-set win. The No.12 seed won his 12th and last Grand Slam title at the 2016 French Open but he is a contender again this time. It will be interesting to see the reaction he gets from the crowd on Court 1.
World No.181 Serena Williams is the hot favourite to win her 24th Grand Slam title – and she does not have to face another seed until the semi-final after the decimation of so many big names.
The American superstar faces Russian qualifier Evgeniya Rodina – the only other mum left in the field. No.25 seed Williams had been seeded to face last year’s US Open runner-up Madison Keys in the fourth round.
Williams is one of only three Grand Slam champions left in the last 16 with former Wimbledon winner Angelique Kerber and last year’s French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko on the other side of the draw.
The biggest obstacle to Williams making the final promises to be the only top-ten seed left – world No.7 Karolina Pliskova – who she could face in the semi-final.
There are no British singles players in the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time since 2007 but there are still 10 doubles players in action.
Jamie Murray and his Brazilian partner Bruno Soares take on the Skupski brothers in the first match on Court 14 today.
But England and Croatia will team up on Court 12 will share the same goal on Court 12 today when Dominic Inglot and Franko Skugor team up in the third round of the men’s doubles.
