Tomic v Querrey in Wimbledon first round
Bernard Tomic has been handed a tough opening round assignment at Wimbledon, drawn to face 21st seed Sam Querrey.
Aussie No.1 Tomic will be hoping to carry into Wimbledon the form he displayed this week in Eastbourne, which took him to the quarterfinals – his best tournament result since January.
He finds himself against the towering Querrey, the American serving machine whom Tomic beat in the only prior meeting in the second round at Australian Open 2012.
Tomic has landed in the same section as No.9 seed Richard Gasquet and seventh seed Tomas Berdych, whom he could meet in the third and fourth rounds respectively.
Top seed Novak Djokovic looms in the quarterfinals.
Yet the Serb is the only member of the ‘big four’ that have landed in Tomic’s half of the draw – Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal have been scheduled to meet in the quarterfinals in the bottom half, where second seed Andy Murray likely awaits in the semifinals.
