World number one Djokovic and second ranked Murray will be seeded in those positions, All England Club officials announced on Wednesday, meaning they can't meet until the final as they will be placed at opposite ends of Friday's draw.
After all, Djokovic has already beaten Murray in both the Australian Open and Roland Garros finals this season and he leads the Scot 24-10 in the head-to-head stakes.
Djokovic now holds all 4 majors and is targeting becoming the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to complete the calendar Grand Slam, a feat only achieved 3 times in the sport's history.
Wimbledon has always been Federer's home-from-home even if his first two visits as a pony-tailed contender with a short fuse and dream one-handed backhand ended in first round losses. Raonic also works with 1998 French Open champ Carlos Moya.
There can be little disputing Novak Djokovic's status as odds-on favourite to win Wimbledon this year.
Andy Murray's reunion with coach Ivan Lendl will help flawless the mental game required for another Wimbledon title challenge, says his mother Judy Murray.
Judy Murray insisted son Andy would have had no qualms reuniting with Lendl, despite long-held theories about partnerships never working as strongly the second time around. A seven-time Grand Slam champ, she had had enough of the grind and wanted to begin the next phase of her life.
Germany's Alex Zverev also beat Federer in Halle last week. "He's aware that Roger won 17, he's aware that Rafa won 14, that Sampras won 14".
Could it become the scene of a record-breaking eighth Wimbledon and 18th grand slam singles title?
"It was a logical move for him to take".
Murray has lost 13 of his last 15 matches against Djokovic, including at the Australian and French Open finals this year, but he has won their last two meetings on grass.
Wawrinka's record at Wimbledon is abysmal, this being the only grand slam where he has yet to advance past the quarter-finals.
No man has come close to repeating the feat.
'It wasn't easy to play because it's wet, tough conditions, ' he told Sportsmail afterwards. But, despite falling short of a memorable outing at the famous SW19 courts this time around, the David Lloyd Speke tennis player is adamant we haven't seen the last of her. Dominic Thiem has been in the mix of potential stars looking to break through. "My first match on centre court".
For the first time since 1998, Lleyton Hewitt will not spearhead the Australian campaign, with that responsibility being left to Bernard Tomic and Nick Kyrgios, quarter-finalists in 2011 and 2014 respectively.
That defeat was Kyrgios' only grass court match since the French Open, but the lack of match practice shouldn't impede his chances of once again going deep at Wimbledon, the scene of his biggest Grand Slam breakthrough.
Building on the #FeelWimbledon campaign Jaguar has partnered with Scotland's Andy Murray in a new ad which tests the tennis ace's serving accuracy against a speeding Jaguar F-TYPE SVR. A win would tie Williams with Steffi Graff for the most major wins in the Open era. He often posts pictures with her on his Twitter account, showing that as the head of Novak Djokovic Foundation, Jelena is the ever supportive wife that the world number one can only dream of.
