Preparing for the Wimbledon Draw

In less than 12 hours, we will know all we need to know about the draws of The Championships, Wimbledon 2012. Here are some facts* and figures to prepare you for that momentous event:

  • Djokovic and Federer will be in the same half of the draw (you can read all about it not being a conspiracy), as will Azarenka and Radwanska.
  • Rafael Nadal will get a cakewalk draw (a.k.a. he'll be a combined 97-5 against his possible opponents, half of them Spanish), while Djokovic and Federer will have tricky seeds in their section.
  • No, wait, there's been a mistake. Roger Federer will have a cakewalk draw (combined 112-4 against possible opponents, half of them his fans), while Nadal and Djokovic will get the big servers who are on their way to winning Wimbledon.
  • Oh, excuse me, that was wrong. Djokovic will have a cakewalk draw, littered with qualifiers, wild cards and Serbian players intending on bending over, while Federer and Nadal will have to face the future stars of tennis.
  • Andy Murray will get near him a player who took him to 5 sets in one of the previous Slams. 
  • A top-8 seed will draw Venus Williams in the first or second round. 
  • There will be two sisters drawn to play each other at an early stage.
  • Kim Clijsters, Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki will be drawn too close for comfort to each other.
  • A couple of players who are defending QF points will face each other early. In either draw.
  • Any two of Nalbandian, Hewitt, Roddick and Haas will meet somewhere around round 2.
  • Isner - Mahut were already drawn, don't worry. Yes, of course they're playing each other, it's in the Wimbledon rulebook, isn't it?
Enjoy your weekend, and prepare to curse the Tennis Gods at least 3 times tomorrow. It won't help you, but at least you'll have someone to blame for all this mess!

* Those might not be entirely factual.
