Djokovic, Federer on course for semi-final meeting

Defending champion Novak Djokovic and seven-time champions Roger Federer could square off in the semi-final of this year's Wimbledon Championship.

Djokovic, who defeated Federer in the 2014 and 2015 finals, will open his campaign against British number five James Ward, and could face another Brit – Kyle Edmund – in the second round.

The world number one's projected quarter-final clash is big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic.

Federer will begin his 18th Wimbledon campaign against Argentine Guido Pella, and may face Key Nishikori in the quarter-finals.

On the other side of the draw, second seed Andy Murray, fresh off his title at Queen's last week, could face fourth seed Stan Wawrinka in the semi-finals.

Wawrinka, who has never made it past the last eight at the All England Club, could face  former US Open champion Juan Martin del Potro – competing in his first Wimbledon since 2013 – in the second round.
