2012 Wimbledon Draw And Bracket: Minnesota Native Mardy Fish Looks To Make Dent In London

On Friday morning, the draw for the 2012 Wimbledon Championship in London was announced and No. 10 seeded, Minnesota native Mardy Fish was pitted against Spanish combatant Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo in the opening round.

In addition, No. 1 seeded Novak Djokovic will return to defend his championship as he faces Juan Carlos Ferrero, a former No. 1 who will prove to be a difficult opening round opponent.

Roger Federer will begin play against Albert Ramos as he attempts to collect his seventh championship at Wimbledon. As the bracket stands now, it is assumed that Federer will have to challenge No. 10 seeded Jason Isner in the quarterfinal, but that is only if Isner can get past Nicolas Mahut in a potential second round meeting.

Fresh off his win at Roland Garros, Rafael Nadal will open the tournament against Thomaz Bellucci, while Andy Murray has drawn Nikolay Davydenko.

You can view the full men's seedings and bracket at the official Wimbledon website.
