& of the Brit wild cards:  Liam Broady & Jay Clarke.  cry

And, for what they're worth, Tini's thoughts on Andy's & Kyle's prospects.  Near the beginning, the journo, Matt Majendie suggests that a decision about Andy's involvement will be made before the draw takes place.

Assuming he decides to give it a go, Bob!  wink  I'd probably hazard a guess at Andy vs Rafa or Roger the Lodger in the first round, that being the luck of the draw!

The grass court formula adjustment to the rankings that applies to all 32 of the men's seeds. So winning the Halle title certainly helped.

Is the draw being streamed anywhere?

Although these computerised draws are boring. Can you imagine the FA Cup 3rd round draw being done by a computer..shudder

from steven

Wimbledon: More detail later but so far, in the top half of the draw:

(WC) @liambroady v (13) Milos Raonic CAN
@cam_norrie v Alja Bedene SLO

And Kyle gets Alex Bolt

Flippin' Tomic in as a LL - wins 6 games in three sets and gets in.....

And Jay gets Gulbis......

Murray v Paire

Seemingly Mmoh in as a LL too - that's VERY lucky ...

Well, that's Liam screwed.

Perfectly respectable chance of progression for all the others.

Can't expect 5 good draws. Jay especially has a good draw.

Good luck to them all!

given he could have only met seeds 9-16 in R3, Kyle getting Djoker is the most rotten option he could get. Though given he's only made R2 here before we probably shouldn't get ahead of ourselves

solid chance for Andy to win a couple of rounds. That would be a win for me at this stage
