It is the second Monday of Wimbledon and it is one of the most hectic days of the tournament with all 32 remaining players in the two singles competitions in action.

The fourth round of both the men's and women's draws are played out from 2pm UAE time, with plenty to watch out for.

Most eyes will be on Court One from around 5.30pm to see if Cori Gauff can continue her stunning run in the women's competition.

The 15 year old has become an overnight sensation after beating Venus Williams in the first round and she now faces No 7 seed Simona Halep for a place in the quarter-finals.

She will be the youngest player since Jennifer Capriati in 1991 to reach the last eight at Wimbledon if she beats Halep, the 2018 French Open champion and former world No 1.

Serena Williams, the 23-time major winner, kicks things off on Court One at 4pm as she faces Carla Suarez Navarro.

In the men's draw, both Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are on Centre Court.

No 3 seed Nadal faces Joao Sousa at 4pm, while eight-time champion Federer goes up against No 17 seed Matteo Berrettini.

Defending champion and No 1 seed Novak Djokovic plays Frenchman Ugo Humbert on Court One.
