Tennis Day 2 preview and stream information

Andy Murray will compete in men's singles and doubles at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

Full schedule below.

Day one of tennis at the Rio Games may have seen some unbelievable upsets, but day two promises nothing but stars.

Sunday’s order of play is essentially a list of the sport’s biggest names. In the morning, World No. 1 and reigning Olympic women’s singles (and doubles) gold medalist Serena Williams of the United States will take to Centre Court. She’ll be followed by the defending gold medalist in men’s singles (and silver medalist in mixed doubles) Andy Murray of Great Britain.

Meanwhile, World No. 2 Angelique Kerber of Germany begins her quest for her first Olympic singles medal on court 1. She’ll play Colombia’s Mariana Duque-Marino tomorrow morning. After that match ends, Spain’s World No. 5 Rafael Nadal of Spain will play his first round match.

The top three seeds of each singles competition will make appearances tomorrow. And the biggest tennis player to appear on Saturday – Venus Williams, who lost a crushing first round singles match – will also appear alongside sister Serena in an afternoon doubles match on court 1.

But those hoping to catch Serbia’s World No. 1 men’s singles player – Novak Djokovic, who’s looking to complete the elusive career golden Slam – will have to wait until the evening. He’ll appear on Centre Court to play Argentina’s Juan Martin del Potro in a rematch of the London 2012 Games Bronze Medal Match – which the Argentine won.
