Andy Murray will play fellow Briton Liam Broady in the first round at Wimbledon and has been drawn in the same half as Stan Wawrinka.

Murray has never before faced Broady, who is ranked 234th in the world and was given a wild card to enter the tournament.

The world number two is also due to meet Wawrinka in the semi-finals while Australian Nick Kyrgios is a potential last-16 opponent.

Third seed Roger Federer, who demolished Murray in the last four 12 months ago, is in the same half as Novak Djokovic, meaning the Scot cannot meet either until the final.

It represents a relatively kind draw for Murray, who cruised past Wawrinka in the French Open semi-finals last month and is yet to lose to Kyrgios in four competitive meetings.

Richard Gasquet, a potential foe in the quarter-finals, has also lost his last six successive matches against the British number one.
