LONDON - British No.1 Andy Murray has received a decent draw at Wimbledon, with World No.2 Rafa Nadal being his likely semi-final opponent.
The world No. 4 faces the Czech Republic’s Jan Hajek in the first round on Tuesday.
After that, Murray could face Finn Jarkko Nieminen in the second round, 26th seed Gilles Simon of France in the third, Queen’s Club winner Sam Querrey in the fourth and Spaniard Fernando Verdasco in the quarterfinals, The Sun reports.
Nadal, who missed last year’s Wimbledon with a knee injury, is Murray’s likely semi-final opponent.
Yet Nadal is in a difficult quarter that includes American James Blake, rising Latvian star Ernests Gulbis, big-serving John Isner and World No.6 Robin Soderling.
The only other Britisher in the men’s draw, Jamie Baker, faces German Andreas Beck. (ANI)
