Wimbledon 2016: Time, TV schedule, how to watch Wednesday's matches online

Several first-round matches will need to finish on Day 3 of Wimbledon, set to begin at 7 a.m. ET on ESPN.

After rain washed out several matches on the second day of Wimbledon, Wednesday will consist of both first- and second-round play. Men's top seed Novak Djokovic will be in action, but so will several men and women who were unable to finish their openers due to the weather.

There will still be extensive television coverage of the day provided by ESPN, and live streams of all courts via WatchESPN. Play gets underway on Centre Court at 8 a.m. ET and on outer courts at 6:30 a.m. ESPN's television coverage begins at 7 a.m. with live streams available at the start of play.

Wednesday's schedule includes Djokovic taking on his second opponent of the bracket, Adrian Mannarino. Djokovic handled James Ward in the opening round without much issue, taking him down in straight sets. Mannarino bested Kyle Edmund in his opener to setup his tough out against the Serb.

Garbine Muguruza, the No. 2 seed for the women, will be in action as she looks to shake off a rough outing in her opener, where she was pushed to three sets against unseeded Italian Camila Giorgi. Muguruza won the French Open, her first Grand Slam title, less than a month ago and of the last eight first-time Slam winners, none have made it past the quarterfinals in their ensuing Slam.

Muguruza will be taking on Jana Cepelova in her second-round match, with a potentially tough third-round match against No. 28 seed Lucie Safarova on the horizon. Muguruza beat Serena Williams in the finals at Roland Garros and the last time they met at Wimbledon, it was in Muguruza's first ever major final appearance, last year. Williams won that match and Muguruza is considered her top competition once again.

Williams made it safely through to the second round on Tuesday and did not have her match affected by the rain.

Roger Federer, Angelique Kerber, Kei Nishikori and Venus Williams are all among the players who will be in second-round action after winning their matches on Wednesday. Federer is no stranger to winning at Wimbledon, holding seven titles on its grass courts, but he hasn't won one since 2012. The last Grand Slam final he won was that year's Wimbledon title, last winning the US Open in 2008, the French Open in 2009 and the Australian Open in 2010.

Federer made it to the Wimbledon finals last year, where he lost to Djokovic. He'll have his work cut out for him again this year, though because he's drawn into the same half as Djokovic, the two can only meet in the semifinals.

Women's No. 3 seed Agnieszka Radwanksa had her opener against Kozlova Kateryna postponed due to the weather and will be in action on Wednesday. Belinda Bencic, Petra Kvitova, Tomas Berdych and Dominic Thiem are all among the players who had their matches rained out who will be in action on Wednesday.
