LONDON (REUTERS) - A potential semi-final with No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic looms for defending champion Andy Murray following the Wimbledon tennis tournament draw on Friday.

Second seed and French Open champion Rafa Nadal has been named on the same side of the draw with seven-time winner Roger Federer of Switzerland.

Murray, who ended Britain's 77-year wait for a men's singles champion in 2013, is seeded third for the grass-court championship, two places above his world ranking, and will meet David Goffin of Belgium on centre court on Monday.

Should he reach the final four he could meet Serb Djokovic, who will face Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan, also on Monday.
