    Del Potro, Nishikori highlight Saturday action Tournament seed Juan Martin Del Potro looks to continue his Wimbledon run with a victory over Slovenia's Grega Zemlja. The Argentine is joined in third-round play by fellow seed Kei Nishikori, who takes on Italy's Andreas Seppi.

    (8) Juan Martin Del Potro vs. Grega Zemlja

    Eighth seed Juan Martin Del Potro holds a 1-0 series edge against World No. 55 Grega Zemlja, having won their only previous meeting at the 2012 tournament in Vienna. Saturday signals their first match on grass.

    Del Potro is through to the round of 32 after defeating Canada's Jesse Levine in straight sets, 6-2, 7-6(7), 6-3.

    “I’m trying to go far, but all the matches are difficult," Del Potro said. "You can see all players can beat the top guys. Tennis is in a very high level at the moment. I’m going match by match and just focusing on my next round. It’s a big tournament, I like to play here. I have good memories from this tournament and the Olympics. I like to play on grass and I would like to stay alive a few more days.”

    Del Potro is seeking his third consecutive round of 16 berth at Wimbledon.

    Zemlja advanced to the third round following a five-sets victory over 29th seed Grigor Dimitrov. The 26-year-old needed six match points before closing the final set, 11-9. Zemlja will attempt to reach his first round of 16 at the tournament.

    (12) Kei Nishikori vs. (23) Andreas Seppi

    Twelfth seed Kei Nishikori leads 23rd seed Andreas Seppi 1-0 in the series after winning a 2011 match in Basel. Saturday marks their first meeting on grass.

    Nishikori made the round of 32 after ousting Argentina's Leonardo Mayer in three sets, 7-6(5), 6-4, 6-2. The 23-year-old collected five service breaks and 29 winners through 142 minutes of play. Nishikori looks to reach his first round of 16 at Wimbledon.

    Seppi is through to the third round following the retirement of veteran Frenchman Michael Llodra. The Italian remains on course to secure his first fourth-round berth at the All-England Club.
