The nine-time Wimbledon champion should safely progress through the opening rounds before a potential date with tricky Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta.
If Federer was to get past him, second seed Daniil Medvedev would likely await in the quarter-finals.
After Medvedev, Federer would then possibly have to beat either fourth-seed Alexander Zverev or seventh-seed Matteo Berrettini.
If the world number eight advances through those tests, it would be pretty clear that he’s at the top of his game this summer.
That would add an interesting dynamic to a potential final against a familiar foe, Novak Djokovic.
