The Australian Open champion would have to play five matches in seven days if he is to win his maiden Wimbledon title following Saturday's rain delays.

Wawrinka's third-round clash with Denis Istomin will now go ahead on Monday, along with John Isner's meeting with Feliciano Lopez.

Fourth-round ties from the bottom half of the men's draw have been held until Tuesday, leaving fifth seed Wawrinka facing a congested schedule.

Wawrinka's coach Magnus Norman said the Swiss world number three will not bemoan the alterations.

"It's tough but I know the organisation and the referees are trying to be fair to all the players," Norman said.

"It's a tough situation because if he wants to go through here he has to win five best-of-five-set matches in seven days so it's going to be really hard, and three days in a row.

"It's not really human but we're not complaining. We know what we have to do and we'll just try to focus on one point at a time and one match at a time."

World number one Rafael Nadal and fourth seed Roger Federer face delays in their fourth round matches following Saturday's postponements.

Nadal's meeting with teen star Nick Kyrgios and Federer's Tommy Robredo clash will now take place on Tuesday.

Kei Nishikori and Simone Bolelli will complete their third-round tie on Monday, after bad light halted proceedings with the scores locked at 3-3 in the final set.

Defending champion Andy Murray will face Kevin Anderson when the top half of the draw all play fourth-round matches on Monday.

Tournament favourite Novak Djokovic takes on 14th seed Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, anticipating a tricky encounter.

"I expect him to serve well. I think that's his advantage," said Djokovic.

"Coming to the net, he's a very aggressive player. If he's on, if he feels good on the certain day, he can beat anybody really."

Queen's Club champion Grigor Dimitrov is seeking his second grand slam quarter-final, facing Leonardo Mayer, while Marin Cilic takes on Jeremy Chardy.
