This year's Wimbledon men's draw is the strangest I've ever seen in a long time. Six of the top 8 seeds are facing very tough opponents in the first round. Four of them are facing former Top 5 players. The first two days of the tournament should be pretty interesting viewing.
Here's the list from #1 to #8
#2 Rafael Nadal vs. Thomaz Bellucci - Bellucci reached as high as #21 two years ago and has two ATP titles
#6 Tomas Berdych vs. Ernests Gulbis - Gulbis is a talented underachiever
#8 Janko Tipsarevic vs. David Nalbandian - Nalbandian reached the finals of this year's Aegon Championships and was a semifinalist here in Wimbledon.
As for David Ferrer, he's slated to meet Dustin Brown of Jamaica while Roger Federer will meet unheralded Albert Ramos of Spain.
