Murray faces tricky Wimbledon draw

By for MurraysWorld.com on
The draw for the Wimbledon championship was made today and Andy Murray faces a difficult route to the title. He will meet Nikolay Davydenko in the first round before running a gauntlet of big serving heavy hitters. Nadal and Djokovic are likely to lie in wait in the latter stages of the tournament.

Murray has not won a match since losing to David Ferrer at the quarter final stage of the French Open. The Scot has since suffered a first round exit at Queens and exhibition event defeats to Tipsarevic and Djokovic.


R1: Davydenko
R2: Karlovic
R3: Anderson
R4: Cilic or Raonic
QF: Ferrer Del Potro
SF: Nadal
F: Djokovic

He didn't have the best of runs before the FO but managed to get into the 2nd week.

I shall take each match as it comes.

That's one tough draw nervous

Should Andy get through the big hitters, at least it will prepare him to face Rafa and Novak.

I'm pleased he's managed to avoid Berdych or Tsonga in the QFs, both would be really tough on grass. Perhaps Tsonga will repeat his heroics from last year and this time knock out Rafa?

I haven't seen that emoticon b4 hazy lol its really funny.
Oh and what is also funny is that Nadal is drawn with Andy again.
Quelle Surprise non?
Unbelievable. And corrupt to a certain extent.
At least if he does meet Rafa in the semi's he'll be well worked in.

No seeding and ranking to a complete extent! Anyway the way Andy's been playing he's not beating any of the top 3 in the semi's and I'd rather see him lose to Rafa than Fed or Nole, let them beat each other up- of course this may also be influenced by my love of the spaniard blush

Not worried about Roger, he probably wont be there. And Andy can beat Novak on grass although its the occasion that might well be the problem, although Novak would be less intimidating.
I hope you would prefer, however, that Andy pulls up his britches and does get one over the Spaniard for once. he's won a couple of times already man.
If not
get out
