Wimbledon: Murray to face Davydenko in first roundLondon: Britain`s Andy Murray has been handed a tricky first-round match at Wimbledon against former World No. 3 Nikolay Davydenko of Russia, after the men`s competition was drawn Friday.

Murray is in the same half of the draw as Spain`s Rafael Nadal, who defeated him in the semi-finals at Wimbledon in each of the last two years.

Before the semifinals, Murray can meet seeds including Canada`s Milos Raonic and South Africa`s Kevin Anderson.

The furthest Davydenko, now ranked 47, has gone at Wimbledon is the fourth round in 2007. He trails Murray 4-5 in head-to-heads, although their last meeting was in 2009 and they have never played on grass.

Elsewhere, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic plays former world No. 1 Juan Carlos Ferrero in the first round, while six-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer has been drawn against 43rd-ranked Albert Ramos.

Former champion Lleyton Hewitt enters the main draw as a wildcard and has a daunting first-round match against world No. 5 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

In the women`s draw, Maria Sharapova takes on Moscow-born Australian Anastasia Rodionova, while reigning champion Petra Kvitova gets Uzbekistan`s Akgul Amanmuradova.

Venus Williams has been drawn against Russian doubles specialist Elena Vesnina, while her sister Serena has a first-round match with Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova of the Czech Republic.
