What is the order of play for day seven?
Tonight’s action on Center Court begins with British women’s singles hope Heather Watson taking on Germany’s Jule Niemeier.
With Iga Świątek, Coco Gauff and Emma Raducanu all already eliminated, the field has been opened wide for one of the underdogs to move on and achieve something memorable.
Jannik Sinner vs. Carlos Alcaraz is the second game of the day on Center Court before defending champion Novak Djokovic ends the clash with Tim van Rijthoven.
Cameron Norrie plays on Court 1 and takes on Tommy Paul.

When do Djokovic, Norrie and Watson’s games start?
Because games at Wimbledon are played back-to-back, with the second game only starting when the first is finished and so on, it is difficult to predict the exact start time.
However, since Heather Watson is in the first match of the day on Center Court, we know her match against Jule Niemeier will start at 1:30pm.
Action on Court 1 begins at 1pm with Tatjana Maria and Jelena Ostapenko in women’s singles, followed by Cameron Norrie’s match against Tommy Paul.
Novak Djokovic vs Tim van Rijthoven will be the last match of the day on Center Court.
What is the ticket information for Wimbledon 2022?
As is tradition with SW19, fans can queue for tickets that allow them entry to the games on the same day.
Last year the famous queue was closed due to Covid restrictions but will return in 2022 – as will resale options.
It is also possible to buy returned tickets from the All England Club ticket office after 3pm.
Many spectators leave early and return their tickets, but their seats remain valid for the rest of the day at a cheaper price.
For tickets bought on the same day, there are usually around 500 tickets each for Center Court, Court One, Court Two and Court Three.
Other options include a ground pass that allows general access from Court Four to Court 19
Ticket prices range from £8 for a ground pass to £240 for Center Court tickets.
Unlike recent tournaments, there was no Wimbledon ticket choice for 2022.
However, those fans who were successful in the 2020 election and accepted the option to keep their ticket will be offered same day and seat entry at this year’s event.
