WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Prince William and wife Kate visited Wimbledon on Wednesday to watch the men's quarterfinals on Centre Court.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were given a loud ovation as they took their seats in the Royal Box ahead of six-time champion Roger Federer's match against Mikhail Youzhny.

Britain's Andy Murray was set to play David Ferrer of Spain in the second match on Centre Court.

Last week, Prince Charles made his first visit to Wimbledon since 1970, while Kate's sister Pippa Middleton has also been at the All England Club during the tournament.

William and Kate also watched Murray play at Wimbledon last year.
