I'm pulling for Blake who is my countryman and I'm a fan of his, but he is not my absolute favorite.

You know who I voted for!  I'm for Roger 100%....

On the women's side... it's easy because Venus and Serena are already my favorites (and they are American).

Even though I like Blake and he is on my 'favorite list', I will not pull for him against Roger. Sorry....

I'm still hoping that Fed takes home the gold.

USA! 

Go Andy and James; Venus and Serena.  I don't even know who's playing though.  For all I know, one or more of them may be injured.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

I'll support any tennis player that I like.  of course, I'd like to see US players win, but i would not be opposed to Nadal winning gold.

In Basketball, it's a different story, USA all the way. 
Lots of people make passes at me, I'm a tennis player!

Well with all the other sporting events at the Olympics - it's USA all the way.  However, with tennis, it's ROGER all the way!!!!

It varies by the sport.  As far as tennis goes I will decide when I see which no-names end up making it to final stages of the mens before deciding which to root for, and in the womens I would like to see Safina continue to make a name for herself and win it.

Since this Poll means "Tennis Players" in the Tennis Polls Thread

The player I want most has to be my British man Murray, but if he fails then it's got to be Rafa  :)

I never thought he would win 4 French Opens - Roger Federer on Rafa
