ANDY Roddick is first up on court number one today after Thursday’s rain forced the rescheduling of the men’s quarterfinals.

Roddick will take on Fabio Fognini followed by Phillipp Kohlschreiber facing Andreas Seppi.

Marinko Matosevic and Steve Darcis will play their quarterfinal first on Court No.2, followed by Ryan Harrison taking on Denis Istomin.

The men’s semifinals are scheduled for Centre Court following the women’s semifinals and not before 2pm.

Play at the AEGON International is scheduled to start at 11am on Friday with Bartoli facing Tamira Paszek in the first match on Centre Court after the Austrian beat Tsvetana Pironkova, 6-0, 6-4 in their quarterfinal.

The pair has only played once before, in 2007, Bartoli triumphing in straight sets.
