Liam Broady and Heather Watson will lead the British challenge as the heatwave is expected to continue on day three at Wimbledon.

Broady, the world number 182, will try to break new ground once again when he plays Belgian 16th seed David Goffin on court three at around 11:30 BST.

British number one Watson takes on Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova on Court One at approximately 15:00 BST.

The temperature is set to exceed 30C for a second day in south-west London.

Broady came back from two sets down to beat Australia's Marinko Matosevic in round one for his first win at a Grand Slam, but he expects to face a step up in class if he is to progress further.

"Depends how he plays on the day," the 21-year-old from Stockport said of his chances against Goffin.

"He's obviously one of the seeds, so he's one of the very best players in the world. But everyone can have off days and everyone can have good days."

Goffin, 24, was named ATP comeback player of the year in 2014 after rising from outside the top 100 to 22nd in the world rankings.

The Belgian has only once made it past the second round at Wimbledon in four visits, but Broady must recover from his first five-set match.

"It was good to just get in the locker room, to understand how you need to handle your focus, how your game can tail on and off during the match, because obviously it's such a long time," he said.

Watson, 23, will play for a third successive day after completing her first-round match against French 32nd seed Caroline Garcia on Tuesday.

The pair resumed at one set all, with Watson saving three match points on her way to taking the decider 8-6.

"The crowd helped me so, so much," said the world number 59 from Guernsey. "I really enjoyed it, it makes the Wimbledon experience so much more for me.

"I put pressure on myself. I always go on the court thinking I can win. I have to be more consistent in my results."

Watson is the only British woman left in the singles draw, but Broady is one of four Britons to reach round two of the men's singles.

Third seed Andy Murray plays Dutchman Robin Haase on Thursday, with Aljaz Bedene and James Ward also progressing.
