Murray withdraws from exhibition match because of sore hip

Speaking on an ESPN pre-Wimbledon panel, Pam Shriver agreed with bookmaker assessments the sport's old firm will again provide the victor.

The draw for Wimbledon was made on Friday morning and the opening round pits Murray against a qualifier or a lucky loser.

The two-time Wimbledon champion was superb in winning his 10th French Open earlier this month, but surviving the rigours of winning two majors in the space of seven weeks will be the biggest test yet of whether his body is fully free of any aggravations.

Andy Murray was seen to struggle during a practice session just days before he is due to begin his Wimbledon title defence.

"The idea is to be mentally fresh still and eager to play, hopefully when the second week rolls around", Federer told reporters at a Laver Cup launch in Wimbledon on Thursday.

Djokovic, who is struggling to find form in the ongoing season, opens his campaign against Slovakia's Martin Klizan.

World No. 1 and reigning champion Andy Murray and World No. 2 Rafael Nadal are on a collision course in the other semi-final.

His coach, Ivan Lendl, said he was "not at all" concerned about the hip injury and Andy is now set to defend his title at Wimbledon, which begins on Monday. Djokovic looks nothing like the player who was dominating tennis as recently as a year ago. And his Grand Slam title count was left on 17 where it had been since 2012. She could wind up seeing Johanna Konta, the sixth seed, as early as the fourth round and then could take on Simona Halep in the quarterfinals. She's +1400 to pull an incredibly unlikely double. But both of them will try to capture the championship despite not being the top seed. She was my pick to win the French and promptly was stunned in the first round in one of the tournament's biggest-ever upsets. Bartoli won it in 2013 and retired later that year.

In women's singles betting action at Wimbledon, Petra Kvitova leads the way at +500, ahead of Karolina Pliskova at +550, and Garbine Muguruza at +900.

But she dismissed Stan Wawrinka as a title contender.

However, Venus Williams has won Wimbledon five times (2000, 2001, 2005, 2007 and 2008), which helps explain why she is the +1200 fourth choice to win her sixth title even though she is now ranked 11th in the world.

No Canadian male or female has won Wimbledon. It set up a superb start to 2017 that also saw him claim titles in Miami and Indian Wells before he chose to sit out the clay-court season, prophesising that a revitalised Rafael Nadal was set to sweep up all before him on the red surface. Raonic also reached the semis in 2014 but hasn't been beyond the third round otherwise. Bouchard has been ousted in the first and third rounds since and, in fact, hasn't advanced past the third round of any Slam since the 2015 U.S. Open. Federer hasn't lost in the first round of the Wimbledon since 2002.
