Djokovic wary of teenager

2:13 pm on 29 June 2011

The defending champion Rafael Nadal came through a training session on a slippery Wimbledon practice court unscathed with his coach saying the world number one will have shaken off a foot injury in time for tonight's late quarter-final against Mardy Fish.

Also in tonight's quarterfinals the world number three and six times winner Roger Federer takes on the 12th seeded Frenchman Jo Wilfried Tsonga, local hope and fourth seed Andy Murray squares off against Spaniard Feliciano Lopez and world number two Novak Djokovic faces the Australian teenage qualifier Bernard Tomic.

Djokovic says he has his guard firmly up against the 18-year-old Australian and he's expecting big things from Tomic in the future.

Play gets underway at midnight.
