Djokovic, who lost in the last year's final to Murray, will be looking for revenge this year

Seven-time champion Federer, the fourth seed, is scheduled to renew his rivalry with world number one Rafael Nadal, who was interestingly seeded No 2,  in the semi-finals.

The Spaniard's mood will not have been helped by the draw which lined him up for a possible second round clash against big-hitting Czech Lukas Rosol who knocked him out in 2012.

Nadal starts against Slovakia’s Martin Klizan with big-serving Ivo Karlovic a potential third-round foe, AFP reported.

Murray, now coached by former Wimbledon women’s champion Amelie Mauresmo, will start his title defence on Monday against Belgium’s world number 104,
