Does anyone know of somewhere online where you can watch/listen to the draw for wimbledon which should be taking place right now? It was supposed to start at 10 am London time.

The official wimbledon website has radio streams but they are off air at the moment (10:10am)

Good that Murray is in the top half. I expect Gj011 rants about conspiracies against serbs and in favour of Federer to not play his 'nemesis' Murray before the final in about half an hour.

Lu is not a very easy draw to warm up with in the first round imo. I think playin Kendrick isn't that easy either. Benneteau is a good draw for Djokovic I think.

Andy Murray was handed close to the perfect draw yesterday for his quest to win Wimbledon. The world No 3 was drawn in the same half as injury-plagued world No 1 Rafael Nadal, which means he can't meet tournament favourite Roger Federer until the final.
Murray faces American world No 76 Robert Kendrick in the first round, who he has beaten three times before, including on grass and will be delighted to see potential banana skins Tommy Haas and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the opposite side of the draw.
Murray, who is being tipped to win his first Grand Slam having won his first title on grass at the AEGON Championships at Queen's last Sunday, still has a few dangermen lurking in his half of the draw - most notably, former finalist Andy Roddick. Defending champion Nadal will meet veteran Arnaud Clement in round one, while Federer will play Taipei's Yen-Hsun Lu, who knocked Murray out of the Beijing Olympics.

British journalists are so ignorant. Haas was dangerous for a non-seeded opponent but isn't anything special for the no. 24 seed. Tsonga hasn't done anything on grass this season, while Roddick is a big name on grass as is Hewitt.

Federer has a tough draw. Djokovic on the other hand has a pretty smooth ride to the semis.

only if you're a murray fan.Can't see Dent being any kind of threat to murray.He has a really easy draw!


Got to agree with you. I'm well chuffed with it. Gulbis in R2 though.....

Djokovic got DelPo in the semis. That's what counts for me.

I was wondering, if Rafa decides to go one step further in his testing and plays on Monday but then withdraws, what are the consequences? I mean would anything happen differently than it would have if he had withdrawn before the tournament?

I hope that makes sense.

If he plays one minute, his opponent will win by retirement and book a place in the second round.

Which players make his draw "tough"?
Fed's draw:
Lu R1
Calleri R2
Kohlschreiber R3
Soderling R4
Verdasco QF
Djokovic semis

And we don't even know if Nole 'll make it that far.

hey, that's assuming Gulbis can even manage to make R2 ;)

I wouldn't be too worried for Andy, it'd take Gulbis catching fire so furiously that the roof starts to melt to cause him problems imo.

In fact I think his R2 and R3 possibilities are perfect, they might not be walkovers but they should be easy enough and get him in the right mood, whilst being entertaining watching for us ^^

Feds draw might actually be the trickiest of the big 4 this time out, theres quite a few difficult opponents dotted in there who could be real dangers on their day.

Man do you edit alot. Hes got Karlovic, Tsonga, Soderling and even Kholschreiber could be difficult.

First, Verdasco won't make it, it'll either be Tsonga or Karlovic I think and they are both tough. Soderling is a tough player especially because he can hold serve pretty easily on grass. Kohlschreiber is in good form and a good grasscourt player. He made the finals at Halle last year and semis this year. Lu is a dangerous guy to play if you haven't played a grass match since july last year. It's not a really difficult draw, but it's not easy either. If Novak doesn't make semis, Juan Martin will and he's tough too.

I know but as difficult as you make it sound.Btw Tsong 'd have to go through
R3: Haas
R4: Del Potro
QF: Djokovic
SF: Federer
So i don't see him meeting Fed here.

You mean quarters. But yeah he will most likely not have to face Tsonga or Roddick. Looks good for Novak.

I think you mean Tommy Haas rawr!

Feds draw is made tough by

Kohlschreiber
Soderling
Verdasco/Tsonga/Karlovic
Semi

that's not an easy path by any means

Tsonga is in Verdascos section of the draw...and in Feds 1/4...

This is not true. Tsonga is in Verdasco's quarter, playin Karlovic third round possibly.

Well, assuming they get to Qfs, then whoever got DelPo has the most work.

Roger has it tough before that, that's true, although Tsonga's not that good these days.

Murray has an easy draw, unless Gulbis gets out of control.

Baghdatis is out!!!:confused: what the heck??!:-?
wow... could we believe in miracles ?

it's wimbledon... so maybe he thought about the possibility of several straight rainy days or weeks allowing him to recover before his 1st match ?

kohlschreiber is good on grass but i dont think he can win against fed in a five-setter also soderling

I would say biggest opponent in his 1/4 would be karlovic and I don't now how verdasco plays on grass

but after all i'm not worrid for roger i dont think he would change with any other from the top four
