This year`s Wimbledon Championship is about to start its magic. Starting with July 27th, the first round matches will be played both in women and men`s singles contests. For Roger Federer, this particular tournament is the best opportunity to set things on the right path. In 2016, his schedule was crippled by unpredictable injuries. Whether it was his knee surgery or his back condition, his schedule has been shortened on multiple occasions which ended with a rusty Federer. In Stuttgart and then in Halle, despite the fact of playing on the grass court, Federer has shown so little.

On the same half of the draw with Djokovic

Earlier today, the draw took place and Federer was assigned in the same half with the ATP leader. So, they`re running for a potential firecracker clash in the semis. It is not good news for neither of them. Following the draw, one thing is for sure: this year, the final will not be the same as the previous two were. In 2014 and then in 2015, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic owned the final act, each time, the Serb prevailed.

In the opening match, Federer will play against Guido Pella, a 26-year-old Argentine who`s currently ranked as 51 in the world. But, when it comes to a Grand Slam, every single player, regardless of his ranking, will try to put in the best possible game. That`s why, a success at this level is not just a seven in a row winning streak, it is most likely a battle with seven highly motivated Tennis players.
