Murray embracing the pressure

5:20 pm on 30 June 2014

The defending Wimbledon champion Andy Murray says he's embracing the pressure as he heads into the second week of the tournament.

The third seeded Briton will play the 20th seed Kevin Anderson of South Africa tonight.

Day seven of the Championships will see the majority of men's and women's fourth-round singles matches played.

But rain delays over the weekend mean Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer won't play.

The former champions both had time to complete third-round victories yesterday, but three men's and two women's matches are still to be finished, meaning the bottom half of the men's draw will now play on Wednesday and Thursday.

The top seed Novak Djokovic plays Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, for a place in the quarter-finals.

Djokovic has beaten Tsonga in their eight previous encounters.

The leading women's seed on court tonight is the fourth seed and 2012 runner-up Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland.
