The singles draws are set for Wimbledon 2017 and it will feature at least five Canadians, Milos Raonic (Thornhill, ON), Vasek Pospisil (Vancouver, BC), Eugenie Bouchard (Montreal, QC), Françoise Abanda (Montreal, QC) and the young rising Canadian star Denis Shapovalov (Richmond Hill, ON).

Raonic, currently world no. 7, is the sixth seed at the tournament and will face world no. 50 Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany in the opening round. The Canadian is in the bottom half of the draw, alongside both Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. Raonic, the finalist last year at Wimbledon, has another tough path this year, which could potentially include a Round of 16 encounter with NextGen ATP front runner Alexander Zverev and a quarter-final showdown against the seven-time champion Roger Federer. Despite making an early exit at Queen’s Club last week, Raonic has had a strong 2017 season, reaching the finals at Delray Beach and Istanbul.

Ninth seed and 2009 champion Rafael Nadal overcame third seed Milos Raonic 6-4, 7-6(7), 6-4 in their Australian Open quarter-final on Wednesday night. He will play the No.15 seed Grigor Dimitrov, a straight-sets winner over No.11 seed David Goffin, on Friday.

Nadal targeted Raonic's backhand early on, a tactic from fellow Mallorcan Carlos Moya, a former World No.1 and Raonic's former coach now working with Nadal. Raonic saved a break point in the fifth game, but lost his serve in his next service game by striking an overhead long to gift Nadal a 4-3 lead.
