Serena Williams will take centre stage as Wimbledon plays on Sunday for only the fourth time in it's history, while Centre Court will get a look at teenage sensation Alexander Zverev. 

It was confirmed on Friday that the traditional rest day for the event would see play for the first time since 2004 after an opening week wrecked by the rain.

By the middle of Saturday afternoon there were still a couple of second round matches outstanding and while the weather improved to ensure play until 9pm on Saturday evening a number of matches were halted leaving half the third round of both the men's and women's events to be finished.

10,000 tickets were made available to members of the public for Centre Court and they were sold out in less than half an hour. Ticket holders will see defending champion and world No 1 Serena Williams take on Germany's Annika Beck.

Williams is bidding for a record-equalling 22nd singles Grand Slam title and she will follow the opening match on Centre which sees 27th seed Coco Vandeweghe take on Italian sixth seed Roberta Vinci.

Also in action on centre will be German teenager Zverev who is widely tipped as a future world No 1 - he takes on 10th seed Tomas Berdych and will fancy his chances of an upset in a half of the draw that has opened up after Stan Wawrinka's exit.

1994 and 1997 are the only other years that play has taken place on the middle Sunday but the hope is that a full day will get the tournament back on schedule to finish with the finals in their traditional slots next weekend.

Also in action on Court No1 will be Sloane Stephens clash against Svetlana Kuznetsova and Jiri Vesely's meeting with Joao Sousa - those matches take place either side of Nick Kyrgios and Feliciano Lopez who will return level at one-set all, the winner facing Andy Murray in the last 16.

Richard Gasquet and Albert Ramos Vinolas will play to a finish in the second match on Court No18, Gasquet leading by two sets to one. Lucas Pouille and Juan Martin Del Petro and John Isner and Jo Wilfried Tsonga will also play to a finish.
