Tomic & Fish are out of their depths in the first of today’s matches.

Nadal’s match against Fish is the second match on Court One, with Bernard Tomic and Novak Djokovic getting the action underway. That match will see the master take on his apprentice, with Djokovic having taken the 18-year-old Australian under his wing and used him as a regular practice partner. “Novak is a champion,” Tomic said. “He’s obviously won grand slams before. My relationship is really good with him. I’ve hit with him a lot of times. He’s a cool guy – one of the nicest guys on the tour.”

Rafael Nadal will not suffer a repeat of the foot injury that hampered him during his fourth-round victory over Juan Martin Del Potro. World No.1 Nadal suffered the problem to his left foot at the start of clash, leaving the Spaniard fearing his tournament was over. A scan, though, revealed only minor swelling of a tendon in the foot, rather than the broken bone that Nadal had feared, and Dr Ignacio Munoz of the Spanish Tennis Federation believes the problem will not resurface in the quarter-final meeting with Mardy Fish. “There is no risk in him playing,” Munoz said. “You can see that he is training quite normally. I don’t think he will have any problems.”
