Rafael Nadal is going for yet another Grand Slam title.
The consensus best player in the tennis world, who already has 10 such titles, will be gunning for No. 11 – and tie him with legend Björn Borg and third all time – in next week's Wimbledon.
His modern day rival, Roger Federer – who may again be his biggest obstacle – has 16 Grand Slam titles; Pete Sampras retired with 14.
Nadal is the defending Wimbledon champion, and coming off a 2010 year in which he won three Grand Slams, or a so-called "Rafa Slam." Another win at Wimbledon, which begins Monday, would put him a victory away from a second straight three-title year.
Nadal, who drew Michael Russell of the United States in the opening round, is in the opposite half from Federer, himself a six-time champion. If they meet in the finals, it would be their fourth battle for the title.
Nadal could come up against the big-serving Milos Raonic in the third round and then 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro in the last 16. If the seedings hold, Nadal's quarterfinal could be a rematch of last year's final against Tomas Berdych.
Federer has second-seeded Novak Djokovic as his projected semifinal opponent. The third-seeded Swiss will face Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan in the first round, and could encounter former finalist David Nalbandian in the third round.
Djokovic meets Jeremy Chardy of France in the first round.
Of the top four, Murray has possibly the most difficult route to the final. Before a possible semifinal against Nadal, he could face Marin Cilic in the third round, Richard Gasquet in the last 16 and three-time finalist Andy Roddick in the quarterfinals.
