Taking into account that they have this match tomorrow, deciding on Fed's 2nd round opponent:

Men's Singles - First Round
Janko Tipsarevic(SRB) vs. Alejandro Falla(COL)

Fed shouldn't be scheduled later than Monday, or he will be at a disadvantage in terms or recovery time re the 2nd round.

Don't the defending champions come out and play first on centre court anyway, or is that just Wimbledon?

Fed should be ok against either Janko or Falla, although who can forget that epic encounter with Janko, I think it was the '08 Aus Open, Fed winning something like 10-8 in the 5th.

Well, they have Kuznetsova out there.

OK, Fed will play tomorrow, and probably Nadal on Tuesday. This is a slight advantage for Fed in the large scheme of things.
