On the women’s side, seven-time Grand Slam winner Venus Williams - a dangerous unseeded floater - ended up in the same quarter of the draw as Polish second seed Agnieszka Radwanska.
Venus also was slotted into the same half of the draw as her sister Serena, meaning they could only meet in a semi-final.
