The pair will be hoping for uninterrupted play, after rain delays on Wednesday evening saw a number of matches suspended and then resumed.

The Met Office forecasts a warm and sunny start to the day with temperatures reaching 27C (80.6F), but it also forecasts thunderstorms for the early evening.

Also expected in the royal box are cricketer Alastair Cook, actress Lesley Manville and ex-prime Minister Sir John Major.

Another Briton in action is 21-year-old Katie Boulter who faces Japan’s Naomi Osaka.
