Wimbledon 2019: How to Watch Coco Gauff, Serena Williams Round of 16 Matches, Start times, Live Stream

Coco Gauff and Serena Williams are both in action at Wimbledon on Monday as play resumes after the traditional rest day on Sunday.

The teenager takes on former world number one Simona Halep on Court One after Williams plays number 30 seed Carla Suarez Navarro in the day's first game on Court One.

Gauff wrote another page of her incredible fairy-tale on Friday, when she saved two match points against Slovenia's Polona Hercog before rallying to win the match 3-6 7-6 (9-7) 7-5.

The 15-year-old has emerged as tennis's new sensation and admitted her new-found celebrity had left her star-struck.

"Ms Tina Knowles, Beyonce's mum, posted me on Instagram and I was screaming!" she said in her post-match press conference. "I hope Beyonce saw that, I hope she told Beyonce about me because I would love to go to her concert."

Former First Lady Michelle Obama tweeted her congratulations to Gauff after her stunning comeback over Hercog, leaving the teenager in shock.

"I was super excited," she told BBC Sport. "She's one of my role models, so it was just cool to see that she knows I exist. We don't talk personally. I don't have her number or anything. I would like that."

Against Halep, the current world number 7, Gauff faces arguably the hardest test of her Wimbledon campaign but she has shown she has what it takes to pull off an upset.

Williams, meanwhile, plays Suarez Navarro, who is still to drop a set so far in the tournament. A seven-time winner at Wimbledon, Williams was close to her best in her third round win over 18th-seeded Julia Goerges on Saturday when she did not even face a break point.

Playing alongside Andy Murray, the 23-time Grand Slam winner also progressed through to the second round of the mixed doubles tournament. Balancing different commitments within the same tournament can take a lot out of players but Williams suggested playing regularly was a positive for her.

Up until last week, the 37-year-old had played just 12 times this year due to a series of injury problems but felt she was steadily getting back to full fitness. "It's been an arduous year for me," she told ESPN. "So every match, I'm hoping to improve tons."

Here's everything you need to know to keep up with the action.
