Save the date for Roger Federer's opening round match at Wimbledon. The Swiss player and his still unknown opponent will be the first ones to walk on Centre Court, on Monday, July 2 at 1:00 PM local time. Federer is the defending champion, and as every year it's the previous edition men's winner to open the schedule of the first day at The Championships.
Federer will be in the top half being No. 1 seed, which supposedly means that all players of that half will play on Monday. So, the No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal should start his campaign on Tuesday, July 3. The first time Federer and Nadal could play on the same day is Monday 10, as all the fourth round matches take place on that day.
