2010 Wimbledon Draw: 10 First Round Upsets To Watch For

The draw for Wimbledon was made on Friday morning in London, setting the stage for a fortnight of grass court action that gets underway on Monday morning.

While Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal enter the men's tournament as the obvious favorites, there is pretty good depth throughout the seeds, from the hometown hero Andy Murray to John Isner and Victor Hanescu.

While the men at the very top of the game—the likes of Nadal, Andy Roddick, and Nikolay Davydenko—are all unlikely to lose in the first round, the draw has provided fans with a number of big potential upsets.

No. 3 Novak Djovokic faces a tough test in Wimbledon veteran Olivier Rochus, while No. 6 Robin Soderling has his work cut out for him against former Top 15 star Olivier Rochus.

With that in mind, here's a look at 10 potential first round upsets to keep an eye out for in the opening days of Wimbledon. Don't take your eyes off the action...if you go to get some strawberries and cream during these matches you might miss out on some of the best action of the first week.
