His 3rd round match with Marcos Baghdatis was almost forced to being suspended until Monday, however with just seconds to spare Murray completed a 4 set win to finalise his place in the last 16.

After the shock exit of Nadal in the second round, the third round did not throw up to many surprises despite losing 8 seeds. The highest seed to exit was 8th seed Janko Tipsarevic, he was dumped out by the 26th seed Mikhail Youzhny.

The only other household name to exit was 30th seed Andy Roddick, despite running away with th first set against 5th seed David Ferrer, the American was unable to sustain his form and Roddick lost in 4 sets. This could have been the last time we see him at Wimbledon as the word on the street is that Roddick will retire after this years US Open.
