Federer and Groth hold serve to leave it at 3-3. Groth cracks out a whopping serve at a cool 134mph – stunning delivery from the Aussie there. 

Groth wipes his forehead during the third set of action on Centre Court

Federer is still in total control with the pair tied on 2-2 apiece. The Australian’s frustrations are growing more audible with every passing game. 

An easy afternoon for No 5 seed Wozniacki as she cruises into the fourth round with a straightforward 6-2, 6-2 win over Giorgi on No 1 Court.

Off Dustin Brown drives into the distance in his Volkswagen camper van…

A shame to see the flamboyant German exit in the third round but all credit to Viktor Troicki. The Serbian has been in fine form recently on the grass courts and will fancy his chances of making the quarter-finals here with James Ward or Vasek Pospisil next up on Monday.

Federer needed just one break of serve to take the second set and full control of the match. Groth couldn’t get near him in that last game. Suspect Roger will be getting a massage within the next hour.

No 20 seed Muguruza upsets former Wimbledon semi-finalist Kerber to reach the fourth round with a 7-6, 1-6, 6-2 victory.

A stunning forehand down the line from Federer makes it 0-15 as Groth serves to stay in the second set. Can the Aussie make R-Fed serve it out?

Caroline Wozniacki is closing in on the fourth round over on No 1 Court. The No 5 seed took the first set against Camila Giorgi 6-4 and is already 4-1 up in the second. 

Federer has won 96 per cent of points on his first serve today and is now 3-1 up in the second set. The No 2 seed has been in imperious form so far today.

Brown’s dream is over as Troicki wins the fourth set to complete a 6-4, 7-6, 4-6, 6-3 victory against Nadal’s conqueror. If only he’d taken one of those early break points…

Federer hits a return winner off Groth’s serve to put himself 1-0 up in the second set. Not the start the Australian was looking for, especially against a man notoriously difficult to peg back after taking the lead.

Troicki holds serve to make it 5-3 in the fourth set and the Serb is just a game away from the fourth round. Brown must hold to make the No 22 seed serve it out.

Another simple service game for Federer, who barely breaks sweat to take the first set 6-4. The Swiss star dealt well with Sam Querrey’s big serve earlier in the week and he’s doing the same with Groth’s this afternoon.

Federer has eased through his service games so far and is potentially just three points away from the first set. Two aces in a row give Groth some breathing space before he manages to hold serve.

Brown looks like he could be heading for the Wimbledon exit after Troicki breaks in the fourth set. The Serb is now 4-2 up and just a couple of games away from the fourth round.

There first four games flew by but Federer eventually wins the fifth after a battle with the big-hitting Aussie. The seven-time champion is already showing his class on Centre Court and is 3-2 up.

Groth has managed to survive a couple of break points in his third service game but Federer has just won another. The Aussie’s first serve is a powerful weapon but his second isn’t working too well at the moment.

Applause as Heather Watson returns to action 18 hours after nearly beating the world No 1. Smattering of seats still available on Court 17 for this ladies doubles match.

Another unbelievable ace from the Aussie, who holds serve to take a 2-1 lead against Federer. How many he’ll manage today is anyone’s guess…

That’s the quickest serve in the world this year, by the way.

He’s done it! Brown earns himself a break point with a brilliant cross-court forehand and then converts it to take the third set 6-4. We’re heading for a fourth on No 3 Court.

Federer makes him work for his first game but Groth wins it in style, smacking a huge ace beyond the Swiss star. The crowd certainly enjoyed that one a little more than Roger.

A stunning forehand from Brown gets him to deuce at 5-4. He could be just a couple of points away from a rare break – and the third set.

Seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer has just emerged from the dressing room with opponent Sam Groth.

The powerful Aussie has a huge serve but he’ll need to produce something very special to have any chance against in-form Federer today.

We’re just a few minutes away from the start of the day’s first match on Centre Court.

Kerber was once a Wimbledon semi-finalist but her chances of getting there this year don’t look too good now. She’s just lost a mammoth tie-break 14-12 to Muguruza, who looks favourite to progress.

BBC presenter Sue Barker is out on Centre Court presenting some of the biggest names in sport to the crowd ahead of Roger Federer’s third round clash.

Among those in the Royal Box today are rugby greats Bill Beaumont, Chris Robshaw Matt Dawson, Brian O’Driscoll and Stuart Lancaster, golfers Justin Rose and Luke Donald, former England footballers Gary Lineker and Graeme Le Saux and boxer Nicola Adams.

Brown is in serious trouble now. Troicki returns a big serve, Brown goes for a drop volley but can only find the net as the Serb wins the tie-break 7-3.

Brown does indeed hold serve and we’re quickly into a second set tie-break between Troicki and Brown. The crowd are really getting behind the German, who is 2-1 ahead after a well executed serve and volley.

Troicki looked to be closing in on the second at 5-4 up and 0-30 but Brown responded superbly, holding serve to tie the second set at 5-5. Troicki does the same – finishing with an ace – to make it 6-5 and Brown will serve to try and force a tie-break.

No 20 seed Roberto Bautista Agut is in control in his third round match against Nikoloz Basilashvili, winning the first set on a tie-break and taking a 3-0 lead in the second.

…to win his service game and make it 3-3. The lanky German just can’t seem to resist moving towards the net, which is making for great viewing on No 3 Court.

An unforced error from Brown and a brilliant forehand winner from Troicki help the Serb break back immediately. We’re back level at 2-2. Brown will be kicking himself.

Brown earns himself three break points and he takes the second, playing another superb drop volley to bring Troicki into the net. The Serb made it but could only knock his return into the net. Brown leads 2-1 in the second set.

It’s 5-5 between Kerber and Muguruza and we’re still on serve. Very tight between the No 10 and 20 seeds so far.

He’s got it! Brown went into the net and played a drop volley but Troicki got to it and hit a backhand winner to take his second break point. That first set flew by.

Brown is serving to stay in the set but it’s not going well – it’s 0-40 and Troicki has three set points. Massive serve coming up…

One of the more comfortable service games we’ve seen so far as Brown eases through his fourth of the match to make it 4-4. Troicki isn’t having it quite so easy now though – we’re at 15-15 after a powerful forehand winner from the German.

She was 2-0 down early in the first set but Muguruza has broken back and is now level at 3-3 with Kerber over on No 2 Court.

Some stellar sporting names in the Royal Box on Super Saturday, as tradition demands. Boxing, cricket, rugby, golf, football, swimming and athletics all represented.

Nicola Adams, Jimmy Anderson, Geoff Boycott, Matt Dawson, Luke Donald, Graeme Le Saux, Andrew Strauss, Mark Foster, and Jo Pavey among those in attendance.

…but Troicki manages to hold serve for a third time. The Serb is 3-2 ahead but we’re still on serve in this first set. 

Former Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp is here at Wimbledon to watch his fellow German Dustin Brown in action. Currently unemployed, his sighting has already sparked suggestions he’ll be the next manager of Liverpool / Arsenal / Leicester / Manchester City / whoever. 

Troicki holds serve for a second time but, again, Brown takes it to deuce. The Serb can’t keep giving Nadal’s conqueror chances like that – he’ll take one sooner or later.

Troicki goes on to hold serve and Brown does the same, albeit in more comfortable fashion. The Jamaica-born star is now 30-0 up on Troicki’s serve, too.

Over on No 2 Court Garbine Muguruza is in trouble early on against No 10 seed Angelique Kerber. The German is 2-0 up in the first set after breaking her opponent in her first service game.

Innovative warning broadcast on the big screen in front of Henman Hill: ‘In hot weather, drink water, wear a hat, apply sun screen.’ Who’d have thought?

We’re at deuce in the opening game of this match and Brown looks like he’s carried on where he left off against Nadal. Troicki saves a break point with a much-needed ace and we’re still going.

Heather Watson almost shocked No 1 seed Serena Williams last night but just fell short.

The British No 1 is back at Wimbledon today and, in an interview with the BBC, has admitted that she has still taken a lot from her heartbreaking defeat.

‘I’ll take a lot from the match yesterday, I’ve learned a lot,’ Watson said.

‘Yesterday was the best atmosphere I’ve ever played in. I’m so pleased with how it went. – apart from not winning.’

He was the talk of SW19 on Thursday after knocking out Rafael Nadal in four sets and Dustin Brown is back today to try and make it through to the fourth round.

The dreadlocked journeyman faces Viktor Troicki shortly on No 3 Court but he hasn’t always been the one to watch.

It’s not just the men and women out on court today – the boys and girls are also in action in the first round of the junior tournament.

One to look out for is British youngster Finn Bass on Court 11 – he’s just won his first service game to go 1-0 up against Serbia’s Miomir Kecmanovic.

Anyone who was watching last night – or following our live coverage – will have seen Marin Cilic and John Isner’s epic clash called off due to bad light.

The two men were tied at 10-10 in the final set at almost 9.30pm but Cilic is already back out on court and getting ready to try and find a decisive break of serve.
