London: Andy Murray takes centre stage under the Centre Court roof at a rain-hit Wimbledon on Friday as the tournament continued to reel from the shock exits of its A-list stars.

Murray, the second seed and looking to become Britain's first men's champion since 1936, faces Spanish veteran Tommy Robredo on Centre Court hoping to seal a place in the last 16.

The world number two is in the bottom half of the draw which has seen seven-time champion Roger Federer, reigning French Open champion Rafael Nadal, dangerous sixth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and 10th seed Marin Cilic all depart.
