The men's and women's draw at the 2012 Championships at Wimbledon have nearly been whittled down to 32 players each. The third round begins Friday, and despite some major upset lately, plenty of big names are still in play. No. 1 seeds Novak Djokovic and Maria Sharapova hope to continue their runs to the finals Friday. No. 3 Roger Federer will face his first ranked opponent of the tournament in No. 29 Julien Benneteau.
Live coverage moves from ESPN2 to ESPN from 7a.m. to 5 p.m. ET. ESPN3 will also carry the broadcast, though those without a subscription can check out the action on the official site of the tournament.
Djokovic will take on No. 28 Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic to start the day at 8 a.m. ET on Centre Court. Federer will take the court two matches later. Sharapova will face Tapei's Su-Wei Hsieh after Sam Querrey and Milos Raonic finish the continuation of their second round match on Court No. 1.
