After a bit of rain earlier in the week, the men's quarterfinal matches are set to begin on Wednesday from London, England as the 2012 Wimbledon Championships roll on.
Top-seeded men's player Novak Djokovic has what appears to be a primrose path to the semifinals at 7:00 a.m. ET on Wednesday morning, as he will face No. 31 seed Florian Mayer, the lowest-rated player remaining in the field. Also starting at the exact same time over on the Center Court is No. 3 seed Roger Federer's match with No. 26 Mikhail Youzhny.
The head-to-head battle of the day might just come from the latter of the two Center Court matches, as local favorite Andy Murray and Spain's David Ferrer will face off in a battle of top-10 seeds. Both players enter their Wednesday afternoon quarterfinal showdown with Grand Slam title aspirations, but neither man has ever advanced beyond the semifinals on Wimbledon's grass. Murray, who revealed that he actually meditated on Wimbledon's courts in the months leading up to the event to gain a mental edge, could be in line for an epic showdown with Federer in the semifinals if each man is successful on Wednesday.
Live coverage will begin at 6:00 a.m. ET on ESPN2, and will run uninterrupted until 3:00 p.m. Shortly after the ESPN2 telecast opens, Center Court men's coverage over on ESPN can also be viewed at 7:00 a.m., which will run concurrently until 3:00 p.m. As always, in addition to the live TV broadcast, the action can be viewed online at Watch ESPN, or at Wimbledon.com's official website.
