Nadal avoids Djokovic until the final, but Kyrgios threatens him

The draw opened the possibility of a new duel in the semifinals between Federer and Nadal, which will start against the Japanese Sugita and could then see Kyrgios on his difficult path.


Rafa Nadal will not have to see Novak Djokovic in Wimbledon until a hypothetical final, but could meet again with Roger Federer in the semifinals of a Grand Slam, after facing him less than a month ago at the Roland Garros. And what's worse, if it surpasses its premiere on Tuesday, July 2, before the Japanese Yuichi Sugita (30 years and 258th) , would entail a possible very complicated second round against the wayward and great Nick Kyrgios, that won him in eighth of the British great in 2014 and recently in Acapulco, on hard court (3-3 in the particular balance). A duel, in addition, with morbid by the cross of declarations that both have carried out in the last times.

The particular system of the match to establish the list of favorites, that rewards especially the performance of the players on grass, close before the draw to the Swiss behind the number one and the Balearic as third seed of series and not second as would be logical for the position that occupies the world ranking.

If you advance in the tournament, Nadal could meet Dominic Thiem in the quarterfinals, who will have a poisoned start against Sam Querrey, while Djokovic, who will start on Monday 1 against the dangerous Philipp Kohlschreiber, would clash with Tsitsipas, Federer (Lloyd Harris will be his first rival) with Kei Nishikori and Alexander Zverev with Kevin Anderson. In the way of Rafa, quite difficult, they would be before (according to the ranking of the competition) Sugita, Kyrgios, Shapovalov and Cilic. There is no doubt that it is the most committed route of Spanish in a Grand Slam in recent years.

Djokovic's career seems easier, with Kohlschreiber following Jaziri, Lajovic and Monfils, before the challenge against Tsitsipas and a possible semifinal against Anderson, finalist against the Balkan last year. Federer would be behind Harris with Clarke, Pouille and Coric (his beast in the 2018 course), prior to his predictable match against Nishikori and that dreaded semi-final against Nadal.

Beginnings affordable for almost all Spaniards

As regards the rest of the Spaniards of the male Wimbledon, most will have an affordable premiere. On the side of Djokovic, Albert Ramos will face American Steve Johnson (29 years and 69º) and Pablo Andújar will be seen with the Kazakh Mikhail Kukushkin (31 and 47º). In the sector of Federer and Nadal, the qualifier Marcel Granollers will debut against the Italian Lorenzo Sonego (24 and 75º); Pablo Carreño, before the Australian of the previous Alexei Popyrin (19 and 99º); Fernando Verdasco will face the Polish Kamil Majchrzak (23 and 111º); Feliciano López, to the American Marcos Giron (25 and 158º) ; Roberto Bautista, to the German Peter Gojowczyk (29 and 123º); and the role of the Navy will be for Jaume Munar, who will have to try to overcome the British number one, Kyle Edmund (24 and 31 º) , who however has no history or much less brilliant in Wimbledon.
