Serbian Novak Djokovic and the Swiss Roger Federer will avoid each other until a hypothetical final of the Wimbledon tournament, as dictated by the draw carried out this Friday.

The Serbian could be measured in the second round with the South African Kevin Anderson, in the quarterfinals with the Russian Andrey rublev and in the semifinals against the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas: Instead, Federer I would face the russian Daniil Medvedev in the quarterfinals and to the German Alexander Zverev or to italian Matteo berrettini in the semifinals.
