Venus, Nadal, Roddick on Centre Court: Wimbledon Day 3 Venus Williams, Rafael Nadal, and Andy Roddick will headline play on Centre Court as Day 3 of the 2011 Wimbledon Championships kicks off on Wednesday.





The Centre Court proceedings will commence with five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams as she faces Japan’s Kimiko-Date Krumm in her second-round match-up, which the American is heavily favored to win. Venus, who made a splash on Monday by appearing on court in a fashion-forward jumper, could potentially meet sister Serena Williams in the final round.

Defending champion Rafael Nadal will square off against Ryan Sweeting of the U.S. in the second match of the day on Centre Court. After defeating Michael Russell in the first round, Nadal will be looking to take down another American, and the top seed will have a definite edge over Sweeting, who is coming off of a grueling five-set battle in the first round.

In the final Centre Court match of the day, No. 8 seed Andy Roddick will compete against Romania’s Victor Hanescu. The Romanian has promised to be on his best behavior this year after his unsportsmanlike conduct last year, which involved spitting on a group of spectators when his request for his first-round match to be suspended due to bad light was declined and then retiring from the match in the next game.
