who in your very honest opinion is going to stand on the winner's podium and wear the gold medal?

I guess being in grass on a two set format is not going to help Nadal much... If it were a 5 set format would be a different story...


Djokovic, Federer or Murray are the ones that come to mind....


I think Murray will come with extra determination on the Olympics at home, and that can definitely be a plus aside from the fact that he is eager to have a major title on his shelf. On the other side, I am betting Djokovic wants to prove that he is still the dominant player on tour and will not let his guard down.


To tough to call...

djokovic said that his first target this year is the french and the second target is olympic gold........having failed to win the french, he will give his all for olympics........we could have nadal - djokovic final........nadal will rise to the occasion as usual........

Philipp Kohlschreiber  :cool:

cool entry but realistically i think he could have an outside chance to win bronze........he should get to the semis for that.......he is playing well, so semis won't be all that hard if he can knock out one of the top 6.......

Good thing that Lukas Rosol is not ranked in the the top 56 and therefore will not be there....
Now, if they would just not close the roof...

I'd love to see that, prolly not gonna happen tho. Even Gulbis is always a tricky opponent, Berdych should have won that one imo.

You can ignore reality, but you can't ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.
