Rio Olympic tennis day three preview and stream information

Posted: Updated:

You can find a full tennis schedule for day three, along with relevant streams, here.

Following major upsets on day one and two, one would expect day three of tennis to feature fewer surprises. But with the number one seeds eliminated from the men’s singles and both doubles categories, anything could happen.

The biggest match of the day will arrive this evening. Women’s singles World No. 1, the top-seeded Serena Williams, will play France’s unseeded doubles specialist, Alize Cornet. Play will take place on Centre Court at approximately 5:45 PM ET.

However, keep an eye out for up-and-coming American Madison Keys on court 1 as she takes on France's Kristina Mladenovic. Keys hit the world rankings' top ten earlier this year, and is one of the United States' best hopes (outside of Serena) for a singles medal. Play should start at approximately 10 AM ET.

Angelique Kerber’s Centre Court match against Eugenie Bouchard around 11:30 AM. Kerber – who defeated Serena in this year’s Australian Open final for the title but lost to the American in the final of last month’s  Wimbledon – is seeded second. Bouchard – who suffered a career-changing concussion in 2014, but won a tough first-round match against the U.S.’ Sloane Stephens at this tournament – could pull of yet another shocker.

NBC Olympics will provide live coverage, updates and recaps.
