When is Novak Djokovic’s match at Wimbledon against Holger Rune?

Novak Djokovic battles Holger Rune for a place in the Wimbledon quarter-finals, with the seven-time champion expecting “fireworks” in the match of the day on Centre Court.

Djokovic has lost twice against the 21-year-old Rune in their previous five meetings, with Rune defeating the Serbian in back-to-back matches in Paris and Rome to establish himself as one of the sport’s biggest rising stars.

Rune has struggled for forms at times this season but the confident Dane will fancy his chances of pulling off an upset, with Djokovic dropping a set in his two previous wins against the British wildcard Jacob Fearnley and unseeded Australian Alexei Popyrin.

Rune, who lost to champion Carlos Alcaraz in last year’s Wimbledon quarter-finals, battled through a five-setter against qualifier Quentin Halys in the previous round and Djokovic says he will be coming up against a “very, very tricky opponent”.

“We both have that fire,” Djokovic. “I’m sure that on Monday we’ll see a lot of fireworks on the court. He’s a spectacular player, no doubt. He loves the big stage, loves playing on grass.

The match is third on Centre Court, and follows the men’s singles match between Alexander Zverev and Taylor Fritz after former champion Elena Rybakina beat Anna Kalinskaya, who was forced to retire 3-0 down in the second set. Fritz won the third set, meaning Djokovic and Rune could be on court around 6:30pm or after 7pm if it goes to five sets.
