British No.1 Andy Murray will continue his campaign for a first grand slam title against Nikolay Davydenko in the 1st round at Wimbledon.

Murray, who has never faced the former world No.1 on grass in their previous nine meetings has been handed a tough draw at SW19, with a potential meeting with Rafael Nadal in the last-four on the horizon should he bypass a number of hazardous ties in the early rounds.

Reigning men's champion and world No.1 Novak Djokovic faces the tricky task of facing former No.1 Juan Carlos Ferrero in the first round, six-time champion Roger Federer faces Albert Ramos, while Nadal has been paired with Thomasz Bellucci.

Other first-round highlights include David Nalbanian, who was disqualified from the Ageon Championship after kicking a line judge, against Janko Tipsarevic, British wildcard Jamie Baker against three-time finalist Andy Roddick and Lleyton Hewit being paired with world No.5 Jo-Wilfred Tsonga.

While the draw appears open for the likes of Djokovic, Federer and Nadal, Murray, ranked fourth in the world, has a potentially difficult route to the second week.

Should he prevail against the Russian Davydenko, Murray would likely face 6ft 10 inch Ivo Karlovic in round two, before taking on South African Kevin Anderson in the third round and Milos Raonic, who has a win record against the Scot, at the start of the second week.

Spanish pair David Ferrer, who took four sets to knock Murray out of the French Open, and Nadal, who has beaten the 25-year-old three times on grass, could follow in the later rounds.

Laura Robson

In the women's draw, Britain's six entries can be content with their first round draws, which is likely to bring an end to a spate of opening-round exits.

British No.1 Anne Keothavong will meet world No.100 Laura Pous-Tio, while Elena Baltacha will face Italy's Karin Knapp.

Heather Watson, who reached the French Open second round at Roland Garros will take on Iveta Benesova and Laura Robson has been paired with 2010 French Open champion Francesca Schiavone.

Wildcard Naomi Broady will aim to build on her grand slam debut last year against Lourdes Dominguez Lino and Johanna Konta, representing Britain for the first time in a grand slam has been drawn with world No.30 Christina McHale

In the remainder of the draw, prolific former champions Maria Sharapova and Serena Williams have both been kept apart, with the French Open champion facing Anantasia Rodionova, while the American Williams is paired with Barbora Zahlavoa Strycova.

In one of the picks of the women's draw, Kim Clijsters, in her final Wimbledon appearance before going back into retirement, faces Jelena Jankovic, while defending champion Petra Kvitova takes on Akgul Amanmuradova, with a potential meeting with Baltacha in round two.
