Cameron Norrie's Wimbledon second-round encounter with former US Open runner-up Kei Nishikori will be first on Centre Court on Thursday.

The world number 55 - whose father David is Scottish - said after his debut singles win at the Championships that he wanted to play on a show court.

That victory over Denis Istomin was just Norrie's fourth Grand Slam success all told and his first at Wimbledon.

And his reward will be to face eighth seed Nishikori on Centre.

"It's not going to be easy against Kei but it's another opportunity top prove myself," South Africa-born Norrie said.

"I've nothing to lose. I'm just going to go out and embrace it and see what happens."

Norrie and Spanish partner Jaume Munar beat Dominic Inglot and Austin Krajicek in five sets in the mens doubles first round on Wednesday
