Draw ceremony on Thursday, July 26, 2012




Olympic draw held at Wimbledon


The draw for the Olympic Tennis Event took place on Thursday at The All England Club, Wimbledon ahead of the action getting under way on Saturday.


The No. 1 seed in the men's singles, Roger Federer, who won the doubles gold medal with Swiss teammate Stanislas Wawrinka in Beijing, will face Alejandro Falla in the opening round.


The two players have met five times and Federer is yet to be beaten, although the Colombian did take the 17-time Grand Slam champion to five sets at Wimbledon two years ago, and served for the match in the fourth set.


No. 2 seed Novak Djokovic, who won the singles bronze medal in Beijing, has been drawn against Fabio Fognini. The Serb leads their head-to-head series 2-1, including straight set wins in their last two meetings.


Andy Murray, seeded No. 3, is in the same half of the draw as Djokovic and has been handed a tough first round assignment against Stanislas Wawrinka, while No. 4 seed David Ferrer takes on Vasek Pospisil.
