The Wimbledon 2017 draws took place today as we learned the fate of the players and especially how things could potentially unfold.
Talking first about the local Brit, Andy Murray was lucky to not draw himself into any kind of grave danger posing a threat to his defensive campaign. The Brit will be in the same half as his Spanish compatriot Rafael Nadal and the World No. 3 Stan Wawrinka while Milos Raonic, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic are placed in the bottom half of the 128 man draw.
The potential last eight matches as per Wimbledon would be like:
Rafael Nadal vs. Marin Cilic
Novak Djokovic vs. Dominic Thiem
Roger Federer vs. Milos Raonic
Andy Murray vs. Stan Wawrinka
Speaking of Andy Murray, he would be playing against the qualifier or the lucky loser in the Round 1 and probably Nick Kyrgios or Lucas Pouille to set up a 4th round clash before meeting Wawrinka in quarters if he manages through.
Wawrinka would be seen playing against the Next gen ATP star Russian, Daniil Medvedev in the First Round.
Second seed Djokovic, who is attempting to capture his fourth crown would be playing against Martin Klizan, probably an easy tie for the Serb. The Serbian would be looking forward to winning his first Grand Slam since he last won Rolland Garros in 2016. A third round movement for Djokovic would mean he faces a potential threat from Juan Martin Del Potro but Djokovic has considerably an upper hand after his previous win over him. Feliciano Lopez, the 19th seed is also in contention to take on the Serb in the 4th Round, before he lets him meet Dominic Thiem in a potential quarters clash.
Whilst talking of the Swiss legend and the top favourite to win Wimbledon 2017 and his career 19th Grand Slam tournament, Roger Federer starts his quest up against AlexandrDolgopolovin the firstround. Federer who won the Halle Open last week would also be eyeing a potential Round 3 meeting against meet No. 27 seed MischaZverev or Bernard Tomic in the third round. MischaZverev or Bernard Tomic. The Swiss has been drawn in the same halfd as GrigorDimitrov, the 13th seed player who could potentially face the Swiss in the fourth round before he sets up a clash with Milos Raonic in the quarters.
The emerging Dominic Thiem, who managed to muddle up to the semis of Rolland Garros this year would be faing an early threat from being drawn in the same half as Djokovic, the player who defeated him in the semis of Italian Open 2017. Though the two are unlikely to meet before the quarters.
Thiem will be facing VasekPospisil in the first round and a probable 4th round clash with Tomas Berdych. Or the 2007 and 2015 winner in Richard Gasquet.
The women’s draw has set up the World No. 1 Angelique Kerber up against a qualifier and is seeded to face Karolina Pliskova in the semi-finals.
While the French Open winerJelenaOstapenko goes up against in a probable clash with SimonaHalep, the player she beat to lift the French Open title. The two time Wimbledon champ in Petra Kvitova has been drawn in the bottom half.
The famous personality of Wimbledon, Venus Williams’ 20th Championships will begin against Belgium’s Elise Mertens.
