LONDON (AP) — A look at Wimbledon today after Sunday’s day off:

Men’s Fourth-Round Matches: No. 1 Novak Djokovic vs. No. 13 Tommy Haas, No. 2 Andy Murray vs. No. 20 Mikhail Youzhny, No. 4 David Ferrer vs. Ivan Dodig, No. 7 Tomas Berdych vs. Bernard Tomic, No. 8 Juan Martin del Potro vs. No. 23 Andreas Seppi, No. 24 Jerzy Janowicz vs. Jurgen Melzer, Lukasz Kobot vs. Adrian Mannarino, Fernando Verdasco vs. Kenny de Schepper.

Women’s Fourth-Round Matches: No. 1 Serena Williams vs. No. 23 Sabine Lisicki, No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska vs. Tsvetana Pironkova, No. 6 Li Na vs. No. 11 Roberta Vinci, No. 8 Petra Kvitova vs. No. 19 Carla Suarez Navarro, No. 15 Marion Bartoli vs. Karin Knapp, No. 17 Sloane Stephens vs. Monica Puig, No. 20 Kirsten Flipkens vs. Flavia Pennetta, Laura Robson vs. Kaia Kanepi.
