'We hope to get some good weather'

Four-time Wimbledon semi-finalist Tim Henman speaking on BBC Two a few minutes ago about the decision to have play on Sunday to clear the backlog of matches.

“It was pretty straightforward as we still have second round matches. You’ve got to avoid sections of the draw getting too far apart.

“If we weren’t to play on Sunday, women would be playing the third round on Monday, fourth round on Tuesday, the quarter-finals on Wednesday and the semi-finals on Thursday.

“Their hand was slightly forced. It has only happened three times in the past and there’s a few logistical issues, but it’s great for the fans.

“This is an opportunity for the fans when they apply online but we do hope we get some good weather.”

So do we, Tim. So do we.

Over here y'all.

Federer 6-4 6-2 6-2 Evans

Roger Federer speaking to BBC TV: "I got a good start in all three sets and that helps a lot so I was able to play more freely.

"He was under pressure. He got no free points off his own serve but I was able to get a lot back and get a lot of balls and be in aggressive position, so it was great for me and I was extremely pleased.

"I won’t be playing him (Andy) for a while. It was fun playing Marcus and Dan they are very talented and I wish them well in the future. It is always a pleasure playing local guys."

Federer got better throughout this match.

He will be the lone player in men's draw to have tomorrow off and two days rest.

Evans has played the great man on the great court.

Federer 6-4 6-2 6-2 Evans

So Roger Federer dispatches of another Brit at Wimbledon.

That means there's only one remaining...

(Yes, you Andy)

Game, set and match

Federer 6-4 6-2 6-2 Evans

A beautiful ace takes Federer to match point.

And Dan Evans can only return long on his next serve. Evans can't hang on any longer. 

Federer is on fire and he's stormed into the last 16 in emphatic style.

Sunday service

So if you missed the news from a little earlier, there will be play on the middle Sunday at Wimbledon for the first time since 2004 to clear the backlog of matches.

Full ticket details will be announced at 13:00 BST on Saturday, but sales will be in advance online with no tickets available on the day.

*Federer 6-4 6-2 5-2 Evans

"Come on, Dan," shout the crowd as Dan Evans now attempts to hold to love.

And he does! The British number four watches a Federer return go past the baseline and he chalks off his service game.

Fed to serve for the match.

How about another hold to love? Alrighty then.

The Roger Federer Express is coming down the home straight. 

Federer on fire

Roger Federer dominates the second set

This was the pick of Federer's shots on his way to winning the second set.

Federer breaks again

*Federer 6-4 6-2 4-1 Evans

And now Federer decides he wants to break to love.

Dan Evans rescues one break point but that's all he's got in his locker. The British number four is fading fast.

Federer 6-4 6-2 3-1 Evans*

I think old Rog wants to knock off early. He races through his service game to love.

*Federer 6-4 6-2 2-1 Evans

Federer is patrolling the net with intent and waits patiently for a drop-shot winner. Evans is miles back and has no chance of racing onto it. He's a sly dog, that Roger fella.

But now the world number three is hitting his racquet in frustration as Evans pulls it back to 30-30.

But you don't want to anger Federer. He catapults a forehand cross-court for break point - 99 mph!

We go to deuce as Evans taps over a winner at the net, but Federer moves back to break point again.

Evans hits long and Federer remains on top.

BBC tennis commentator on BBC Two

That hold of serve makes things look so much better for Dan Evans. He's ahead in the set based on that. It makes a difference to your mindset when you look at the board.

Federer 6-4 6-2 1-1 Evans*

It's small victories for Evans at the moment. He draws Federer into a rare mistake and moves to 15-30.

But the Swiss quickly recovers to close it out in style with two huge serves.

People's Sunday in session!

There will be play on Middle Sunday. Details announced 1pm tomorrow. All tickets to be purchased in advance online, none available on day.

*Federer 6-4 6-2 0-1 Evans

Evans is back on serve, trying to salvage this match against the world number three.

The 26-year-old volleys a winner for 30-30 and then demolishes a straight backhand. Take that, R-Fed!

And a blistering forehand after a decent rally sees the Briton hold. Big cheers from Centre Court. 

Richard Krajicek

BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

Dan Evans can't do much more - other than what he's doing, and knee-ing Roger at the net! It's just so hard. He's playing too nice for Roger. If he doesn't change what he's doing, at least take time between points. Frustrate Roger in that way.

Federer 6-4 6-2 Evans*

Ace number seven on the board for Roger Federer for 30-15.

A beautiful forehand winner gives him two set points.

The Swiss parries into the net to lose one but then Dan Evans' backhand goes long.

Federer is on the march.

Dan Evans is not the first person to walk on a tennis court and realise there's not one thing he is better at than Roger Federer.

Djokovic shock - can he fight back?

Stunned spectators around other courts were earlier gawping in disbelief at screens showing the latest scores - with defending champion Novak Djokovic two sets down to world number 28 Sam Querrey.

Play on Court One will resume on Saturday, and don't rule out a fightback from the 12-time Grand Slam champion.

Djokovic came from two sets down against Kevin Anderson in the fourth round last year, and went on to win his third SW19 title.

There's so many voices inside this court just urging Dan Evans to take something from this match. However little.

*Federer 6-4 5-2 Evans

Dan Evans gets some much-needed encouragement from the crowd as he serves to stay in the set.

He watches Federer hit a long backhand to move to 40-30 and places a forehand into the corner to hold. 

He's stopped the rot for now. Federer to serve for the set.

Federer 6-4 5-1 Evans*

Yeaaaahh, Roger's on one now.

The Swiss delicately chips the ball over to hold to love. 

*Federer 6-4 4-1 Evans

While Federer has racked up six aces, Evans has racked up six double faults. 

His latest one takes us to deuce. 

Once again, Evans has to wait a while but he does hold to get off the mark in this set.

A severe case of deja vu...

All you need is love

I love you Roger

People in the crowd have been declaring their love for both Roger Federer and Dan Evans on Centre Court - "I love you Roger", "I love you more Dan"...

Andrew Cotter

BBC tennis commentator on BBC Two

It's difficult to see a way back for Dan Evans now.

Federer 6-4 4-0 Evans*

Evans snatches a point off Federer but the Swiss responds with his sixth ace of the match. Kerpow, as they say in the comic books.

But now the Brit has break point...sneaky.He can't do anything with it though, as he hits long past the baseline. 

Deuce time. As the pair chase lines, Evans smacks a forehand marginally wide.

Federer then holds as Evans fails to return. So close, yet...

*Federer 6-4 3-0 Evans

Dan Evans has found himself in a bit of a pickle now.

He tries to dink a delicate dropshot over the net but it bounces back the wrong way. Federer has three break points again.

One is saved, but a wild backhand from Evans sees the seven-time champion break.

Federer 6-4 2-0 Evans*

Dan Evans manages to sneak a point off Federer's serve but that's all he gets.

Roger's feeling stingy.

*Federer 6-4 1-0 Evans

Ominous. 

Roger Federer breaks Dan Evans to love. The Swiss is on the charge. 

Game and first set

Federer 6-4 Evans*

Federer earns two set points. He needs just one.

Dan Evans returns into the net and the world number three takes it 6-4. 

Patience is a virtue...

Tennis fans at Wimbledon can join a queue for resale tickets - those no longer needed by spectators who have left for the day.

Two women who struck lucky on Friday evening were Pauline De Sousa and Anastasia Rodina.

"We had ground passes, joined the resale queue and 15 minutes later had Court One tickets to see Novak Djokovic. It's really cool," said London-based South African Pauline.

I doubt they would have expected to see Djokovic go two sets down - to Sam Querrey - however.

Play suspended on outside courts

That's it. The rain has won for the day.

No more play from Courts One to 18. We continue here on Centre, though.

Querrey wins second set

Querrey wins the second set

On a day where the rain has been everyone's enemy, Novak Djokoiv must have been delighted to see it after losing the second set to Sam Querrey.  A major shock is on the cards...

*Federer 5-4 Evans

Dan Evans incurs a double fault to take the game to deuce and then he fails with a drop shot. 

Federer has the advantage and break point. But Evans fends it off and then takes the advantage himself.

And the crowd cheer as Federer swipes into the net. Game Evans, and Federer will serve for the set. 

Richard Krajicek

BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

"Dan Evans looks tired, as though he's already used up a lot of energy. Mental energy can tire you out."

Federer 5-3 Evans*

A mighty long rally for the first point of the game - both players are trapped behind their baselines ready to pounce.

Eventually, Federer clips the ball over the net to win it. Then he holds to love.
