Wimbledon day six: Cameron Norrie and Emma Raducanu carry British hopes
With Andy Murray and Dan Evans going out on Friday night, British hopes at Wimbledon rest with Cameron Norrie and Emma Raducanu.
Norrie will be put to the test by the king of Centre Court Roger Federer in the men’s third round while 18-year-old Raducanu’s SW19 fairy tale continues with a Court One date with Sorana Cirstea.
But the match of the day could be the clash between Felix Auger-Aliassime and Nick Kyrgios, which promises excitement and – knowing Kyrgios – some drama too.
Murray’s Wimbledon return ended with a Friday night beating by 10th seed Denis Shapovalov.
There was more bad news for Great Britain as Dan Evans went out but defending champion Novak Djokovic marched on serenely.
Here, the PA news agency looks at the events of day five.

Murray’s Centre farewell?
It would be foolish to write Andy Murray off, but there is a chance that the two-time Wimbledon champion has played his last match on the court where he enjoyed such good memories. Murray’s run at this year’s tournament ended with a third-round loss to Denis Shapovalov, going down 6-4 6-2 6-2 on Centre Court. Given he has a metal plate in his hip it is a miracle that he is even playing at this level at all and at times he showed that his tennis is still up there with the best. However, there remain huge question marks over his body and it remains to be seen whether he can maintain playing for another 12 months in order to be back in 2022.

Jabeur overcomes illness
Ons Jabeur could not have chosen a worse time to start feeling ill as she tried to close out her third-round match with Garbine Muguruza. The Tunisian, who won at Birmingham in the build-up to Wimbledon, battled back from a set down to lead 5-2 in the decider. At 40-30 an ongoing stomach issue got the better of her as she went to the back of the court and threw up. But she closed the game out to win 5-7 6-3 6-2 and knock the 11th seed out.
Men: Dan Evans (22), Fabio Fognini (26)
Women: Garbine Muguruza (11), Elise Mertens (13)
