LONDON (AP) -- A look ahead to Wimbledon on Monday after Sunday's day off:

Third-Round Men's Matches: No. 9 John Isner vs. No. 19 Feliciano Lopez, No. 5 Stan Wawrinka vs. Denis Istomin, No. 10 Kei Nishikori vs. Simone Bolelli (to be completed).

Third-Round Women's Matches: No. 11 Ana Ivanovic vs. No. 19 Sabine Lisicki (to be completed), Madison Keys vs. Yaroslava Shvedova (to be completed).

Fourth-Round Men's Matches: No. 1 Novak Djokovic vs. No. 14 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, No. 3 Andy Murray vs. No. 20 Kevin Anderson, No. 11 Grigo Dimitrov vs. Leonardo Mayer, No. 26 Marin Cilic vs. Jeremy Chardy.

Fourth-Round Women's Matches: No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska vs. No. 22 Ekaterina Makarova, No. 5 Maria Sharapova vs. No. 9 Angelique Kerber, No. 6 Petra Kvitova vs. Peng Shuai, No. 8 Alize Cornet vs. No. 13 Eugenie Bouchard, No. 16 Caroline Wozniacki vs. Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, No. 23 Lucie Safarova vs. Tereza Smitkova.

Noteworthy I: For the first time in the Open era, four women from the Czech Republic have advanced to the round of 16 at a Grand Slam -- Kvitova, Safarova, Smitkova and Zahlavova Strycova.

Noteworthy II: It will be no easy task, but if 20th-seeded Anderson can beat defending champion and No. 3-seeded Murray, he'd be the first South African since Wayne Ferreira in 1994 to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals. They are 1-1 in career meetings.

Statworthy I: 13-2: Bouchard's record in Grand Slam matches this year, after going 4-3 last year. The Canadian is the only woman to advance to the semifinals of both Grand Slam tournaments this year.

Statworthy II: 35: the number of titles from the past 37 Grand Slam tournaments the "Big 4" -- Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Djokovic and Murray -- who are all still around for the second week -- have won.

Monday's Forecast: Sunny with cloudy periods, high of 72 degrees F (22 C).
