3. Andy Murray vs Felix Auger Aliassime

UPDATE: Great Britain’s two-time defending champion in men’s singles, Andy Murray, has been replaced in today’s order of play by Max Purcell (AUS) against Canada’s Felix Auger-Aliassime, third on Centre Court. He remains in the doubles draw.

4. Stefanos Tsitsipas vs Philipp Kohlschreiber

Top seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, who shockingly crashed out of Wimbledon in round 1, will have an opportunity to make amends at Tokyo Games. The Greek will face off Kohlschreiber of Germany in his search for a breakthrough. Having said that Tsitsipas has been impressive in 2/3 grand slams, reaching the semifinals of the Australian Open and French Open final. Kohlschreiber, on the other hand, is unlikely to win the match owing to his records coupled with age. The 37-year-old has lost twice to the youngster with the trend likely to follow at Tokyo Olympics.
