Novak DJokovic had to battle, while Andy Murray coasted; how will Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer fare on Thursday? The match can be watched online through live stream free at WatchESPN.
Federer's serve has been fantastic so far.

So far, on the Men's side, Wimbledon has lived up to expectations, and Day 4 of the Wimbledon Championships means the return of some of the world's greatest players. 

On Wednesday, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic took very different paths, but both eventually moved on to the third round.

With players like world men's No. 1 Rafael Nada and Roger Federer taking to the court at the All England Club Thursday, some of the best tennis to be found is yet to come, in this year's tournament. Fans can watch the games online through live stream free provided by ESPN through their website WatchESPN. 

Defending champion Andy Murray made short work of Slovenian grasscourt newcomer Blaz Rola on Wednesday. Murray, the third seed, worked out a 6-1, 6-1, 6-0 warm-up of 23-year-old Rola who was playing just the 10th match of his career having just turned pro.

The British star barely strained himself in just 84 minutes, hitting seven aces and 27 winners against the world number 92. Murray will go on to face either Jan Hernych of the Czech Republic or Spanish 27th seed Roberto Bautista Agut for a place in the last 16.

Novak Djokovic survived somewhat of a Wimbledon scare as he overcame an inspired Radek Stepanek 6-4 6-3 6-7(5) 7-5(5) to find his place in the third round. Before the match Djokovic had said he feared playing his friend, Stepanek, and the match was tight the whole time.

On Thursday, Nadal takes on Lukas Rosol, who has beaten Nadal before at Wimbledon. Back in 2012, Rosol knock out Nadal in the second round, so Nadal will be seeking revenge this time around. Now that Rosol has Nadal's attention, it will be much tougher this time.

Meanwhile, seven-time champion Federer crushed Italy's world No 83, Paolo Lorenzi, 6-1, 6-1, 6-3 to reach the second round. It was the 10th time in 11 years he has won his first match in straight sets, so he seems to be in good form. He is set to meet 103 ranked Gilles Muller in the next round.
