fed or murray: who has the weaker draw?

Roger Federer and Andy Murray will have cake(crumpet?)walks on their way to that men’s Wimbledon final, but it’s worth considering the Davids that could topple these grass Goliaths.

1R: Federer faces Yen-Hsun Lu of Taipei, who does better on faster surfaces. (Murray: Robert Kendrick)

2R: Murray will have to deal with either Gulbis or Dent. You can never discount the hard-serving (and tall) American on a surface like this, especially when he’s already warmed up by making it through qualifying. (Federer: Calleri or Gigi Lopez)

3R: Federer could face Kohlschreiber, who we expect to give the former champ the most trouble before the final.

4R: Murray has to deal with Wawrinka or Safin. You never know what you’ll get with those two. (Federer: Soderling)

Quarters: Murray will play Gonzo, Kiefer or Simon.
