Andy Murray has been drawn against Switzerland’s Stansials Wawrinka in the first round of the Olympic men’s tennis.
The Wimbledon finalist is one of the 16 seeds in the 64-man competition and would have faced a difficult route to the medal positions regardless of the draw.
However, in drawing Wawrinka, Murray will begin against an opponent who has beaten him four times in ten meetings.
Should he be successful in overcoming the Swiss, the Scot would face India’s Somdev Devvarman or Finland’s Jarkko Nieminen.
Potential opponents in the later stages include France’s Richard Gasquet in the third round, Czech Republic’s Tomas Berdych in the quarter finals, Serbia’s Novak Djokovic in the last four and the possibility of a Centre Court rematch with Switzerland’s Roger Federer in the final.
