Federer, Nadal lined-up for Wimbledon quarter-final clashLondon: Seven-time champion Roger Federer and two-time winner Rafael Nadal were lined-up as potential Wimbledon quarter-final opponents when the draw for the season`s third Grand Slam was made Friday.

The draw was good news for world number one Novak Djokovic, the 2011 champion, after second seeded Andy Murray was also placed in the same half of the draw as Federer and Nadal.

That would leave Djokovic free of facing any of his major rivals until the final.


Third seed Federer and Nadal, who have met 30 times in their careers, were placed in the same quarter of the draw after the Spaniard was only seeded five having lost in the second round in 2012.

If the seedings play out, then the quarter-finals would see Djokovic tackle Tomas Berdych, David Ferrer, the fourth seed, would meet Juan Martin del Potro, Nadal would face Federer while Jo-Wilfried Tsonga would face Murray.
