French Open - Murray draws Ito, Nadal awaits
Fri, 25 May 11:45:00 2012
Andy Murray will face Japanese Tatsuma Ito in the first round of the French Open, which begins on Sunday.
Should Murray then come through potential match-ups against Bernard Tomic and Alexandr Dolgopolov, he would likely face David Ferrer in a tricky quarter-final before meeting the king of Roland Garros in the semi-finals Rafael Nadal.
Djokovic and Federer could be set for a repeat of their epic last-four clash in 2011, which the Swiss won in four sets to end the Serb's 43-match winning streak.
Ito reached the second round of this season's Australian Open - his best showing in a Grand Slam - before going down to Tomic.
World number four Murray lost in straight sets to eventual champion Rafael Nadal at the semi-final stage last year.
