Serena could face Venus in Wimbledon 4th round; Murray has Nadal, Federer to look forward to

The odds may not necessarily be in Andy Murray's favor in this year's Wimbledon.

The 2013 champion has a tough task ahead if he wants to win his second Wimbledon title and third grandslam overall. Murray will potentially meet 10th seed Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals, Roger Federer in the semis, and defending champion Novak Djokovic in the finals.

The defending champion Djokovic may have avoided Federer, Nadal, and Murray but he will have to deal with 2015 French Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka who denied the Serb an opportunity to complete a career Grand Slam earlier this month.

In the ladies' singles, world number one Serena Williams is hoping to keep her drive for another "Serena Slam" alive but she will have to go through sister and doubles partner Venus as well as Maria Sharapova to do that.

Serena already won four non-calendar year grand slams in a row when she won the 2002 French Open, Wimbledon, US Open and 2003 Australian Open. With this year's Australian Open and French Open already in the bag, Serena only needs to win Wimbledon and the US Open. If that happens, Serena will then have 22 singles Grand Slam titles, tying her at number two all time along with Steffi Graf. Add another two and she'll then tie Margaret Court at number one all time.
