Viewer's guide for Sunday
WIMBLEDON, England -- The third-round matchup between Americans Andy Roddick and Taylor Dent promises to be one of the best of the day as Wimbledon plays on the middle Sunday for only the third time in the history of the All England Club.
Two of the hardest servers in the men's game, Roddick and Dent last met at the Australian Open in January when Roddick dismissed Dent with ease 6-2, 6-0, 6-2. But Roddick is doing his best not to be lulled into a false sense of confidence.
"What's done is done," Roddick said Friday. "He just had a terrible day. He just played horrible and I played well. We had a pretty intense match at Queen's last year, and that's probably what I'll remember a little bit more than Australia."
Dent, 1-2 lifetime against Roddick, got his lone win in 2003 at Memphis 6-1, 6-4. Dent will be faced with the challenge of stopping a player who has won 17 of his last 18 American matches on grass. If Dent succeeds, he will advance to the fourth round, his best Wimbledon showing to date. Bad weather has made play intermittent or nonexistent the first week. So the day features a plethora of high-profile matches.
