Former Wimbledon winners Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal were all placed in the same section of the draw for this year's tournament at the All England Tennis Club on Friday.

Top seed and defending champion Novak Djokovic was kept apart from the other members of the 'Big Four'.
   
However, the Serb may have to beat third-seeded Stan Wawrinka, the Swiss who defeated him in the French Open final earlier this month, in the semifinals.
   
Djokovic begins his title defence against experienced German Philipp Kohlschreiber in the first round with a possible second-round clash with 2002 champion Lleyton Hewitt, who is playing in his last Wimbledon.
   
If the seedings work, the last-16 would see Djokovic face Kevin Anderson of South Africa, US Open champion Marin Cilic against Kei Nishikori, Wawrinka facing David Goffin and Grigor Dimitrov taking on Milos Raonic.
   
In the bottom half, seven-time champion and second seed Federer could face Feliciano Lopez, Tomas Berdych would meet Gilles Simon, 2013 winner Murray could play Jo-Wilfried Tsonga with two-time champion Nadal, seeded ten this year, up against compatriot David Ferrer.
