    Ferrer faces Roddick in third round World No. 5 David Ferrer is set to highlight third-round action on Saturday, as he squares off against three-time finalist Andy Roddick. The two are joined by 9th seed Juan Martin Del Potro, who takes on 19th seed Kei Nishikori.

    (7) David Ferrer vs. (30) Andy Roddick

    World No. 5 David Ferrer holds a narrow 6-4 series edge against World No. 25 Andy Roddick. Saturday signals their first meeting on grass.

    Ferrer is through to the round of 32 after downing France’s Kenny De Schepper in straight sets. The 30-year-old Spaniard will attempt to make his third consecutive Wimbledon round of 16.

    Roddick made the third round following his three-sets ousting of Germany's Bjorn Phau. The 29-year-old American is bidding for his 15th victory of the season.

    (9) Juan Martin Del Potro vs. (19) Kei Nishikori

    World No. 9 Juan Martin Del Potro leads world No. 20 Kei Nishikori 2-0 in the head-to-head series. They are set to meet for the first time on grass.

    Del Potro moved into the round of 32 by virtue of his four-sets victory over Japan’s Go Soeda. The 23-year-old Argentine looks to record his 40th match-win in 2012.

    Nishikori dismissed veteran Florent Serra in the second round, 6-3, 7-5, 6-2. The 22-year-old remains on track to make his first Wimbledon round of 16.

Ferrer has always played Roddick tough, and their matches have been very close. That said, Roddick would need some luck to get the 'W' coz he's still not playing well enough to beat Ferrer, IMO.

Agree scoret. think Ferrer's speed round the court will flummox Roddick.

Vamos David & good luck.

Looks like Ferrer is coming back - I like both so may the best man on the day win.

Ferrer breaks to lead 4-3 in 4th set

Roddick is looking as if he is saying goodbye to Wimbledon :( That's too sad for me for a guy who IMO deserves to win one.

bolbol , 6/30/12 7:52 PM

Yes, I wish he had won that final against Fed in 2009 - it was so close - what a shame. A feisty competitor.

schatz , 6/30/12 7:53 PM

jinxed it with no Querrey-Cilic preview

RickyDimon , 6/30/12 9:29 PM

153 unforced error baseline tennis. Not the most exciting.

Hope Cilic will end it now so I can see some of the muzz match.

agfmilos , 6/30/12 9:58 PM

A lot of just hitting it back waiting for an error but Cilic is more the aggressor and deserved the win.

agfmilos , 6/30/12 10:02 PM

I knew this would have been a tough one for roddick. He needed a less energetic opponent. Ferrer, like Nadal, Murray and Djokovic are fast and guys like roddick can't keep up with them. They win a lolt of points just chasing down the ball.

scoretracker , 6/30/12 10:32 PM

Roddick played crap after 1st set
