Unlike most slam draws, the draw for Wimbledon was performed on time and with no long-winded pre-amble*. We quickly found out that Rafa landed in Federer’s half and Murray’s quarter. His first opponent will be Bellucci.
Seeds in Rafa’s quarter: Murray, Ferrer, Fognini, Troicki, Tsonga, Karlovic and Seppi. Seeds in the rest of his half are Berdych, Garcia-Lopez, Monfils, Simon, F. Lopez, Bautista Agut, Sock and Federer.
Seeds in the top half are Djokovic, Tomic, L. Mayer, Anderson, Cilic, Isner, Cuevas, Nishikori, Wawrinka, Thiem, Robredo, Goffin, Dimitrov, Gasquet, Kyrgios and Raonic.
His potential path (by seeding) to the final:
2R Brown or Lu
Not an easy draw, but it could have been much worse.
*In other words: I missed the first few minutes of it.
