Wimbledon champion Andy Murray will face world number 55 Andrey Golubev in the first round of the French Open.

The draw for this year's Roland Garros tournament took place this morning, with the Scotsman due to take on Golubev of Kazhakstan in his opener at the Grand Slam.

The British number one is seeded to face a potential quarter-final clash against Stanislas Wawrinka, which could then result in a semi-final battle against Rafael Nadal, who is the defending champion.

Novak Djokovic, who could face Milos Raonic in the quarter-finals, and Roger Federer, who may have to go up against Tomas Berdych in the final eight, are in the other half of the draw.

Nadal will play Robby Ginepri in the first round, while Djokovic and Federer face matches against Joao Sousa and Lukas Lacko respectively when they kick off their campaign.
