The Wimbledon Singles Draw is now available. Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer are on a collision course once again, and could meet in the semifinal at Wimbledon. It's the 16th time in the past 21 majors, that the Serbian and the Swiss find themselves in the same half of the men's draw. Both will face Spaniards in the first round: Novak will play against Juan Carlos Ferrero and Roger will face Albert Ramos.
This means Rafael Nadal has eventually an easier path to the final. The Spanish has home hope Andy Murray, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Feliciano Lopez, Tommy Haas and Alexandr Dolgopolov as possible opponents. 

In the ladies draw, Maria Sharapova seems to have her way clear to the final. Her possible opponents are Sabine Lisicki, Jelena Jankovic and Angelique Kerber. Victoria Azarenka is on the bottom half of the draw and she will have Caroline Wozniacki on her course for a quarter-final clash.

Possible quarter-finals:

Men's singles: 

Top half of the draw
Roger Federer - John Isner
Novak Djokovic - Thomas Berdych

Bottom half of the draw
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga - Rafael Nadal
David Ferrer - Andy Murray

Women's singles:

Top half of the draw
Maria Sharapova - Angelique Kerber
Agnieska Radwanska - Samantha Stosur
