Andy Murray learns potential route to Wimbledon final

Muller won the recent Den Bosch tournament and reached the semi-final at Queen's Club last week. He will begin his campaign against Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov in the first round before a possible clash with either veteran 27th seed Mischa Zverev or Australia's Bernard Tomicin the third round.

Defending champion Andy Murray will learn later today who he plays in the first round of the Wimbledon Championships next week, but whoever his opponent there will be a sense of trepidation on the part of the World No 1.

"Unlike before (the French Open in) Paris, he is hitting the ball really well".

"At the same time, I tell you, it's a tournament that you can go out of very early".

According to Goran Ivanisevic, the 2001 Wimbledon victor, Nadal enters the 2017 Wimbledon as the favourite simply due to his scintillating form in recent months.

On the women's side, defending champion Serena Williams will not be present to protect her title and go for her seventh tournament win.

The Scot, who is bidding to win Wimbledon for a third time, was drawn in the same half as two-time champion Rafael Nadal, with three-times victor Novak Djokovic and seven-times champion Roger Federer placed in the bottom half.

Nadal is the fourth seed in his quest to complete the third French Open-Wimbledon title double of his career.

"The Brit looks to be in great form and is the 11/1 third favourite to become the first British woman in 40 years to win the title".

Garbine Muguruza (+900) has been struggling with her confidence and Angelique Kerber (+1400) also has a mental game that's in a shambles, while No. 2 seed Simona Halep (+2000) struggles on grass. I would pick Nadal if he passes the first week.

The draw for Wimbledon, as it always does, has produced a number of fascinating storylines, from the return of Petra Kvitova after her knife attack to Roger Federer's bid for a record eighth title at the grand old age of 35.

"I do believe Wimbledon will be won by one of the top contenders".

Federer is in the same quarter as last year's runner-up Raonic - that would be a repeat of last year's semi-final that the Canadian won in five sets. But Kvitova is in the tougher, bottom half of the draw, with a potential fourth-round battle against Britain's sixth seed, Johanna Konta.
