Actually I think Roddick will beat Djokovic in 3.  :whistle:
You really think it will go the distance?  I'm thinking more like 3 & 2, time for brew!

Roddick/Isner already out of the doubles competition  :Confused:.
Both are excellent servers, and Roddick has a good net game. So, for me it comes as a surprise.

Robin Haase in out in the first round of both the singles and doubles competition.
He literally said: "It is no big deal, I don't care about the Olympics. I focus on Cinci.". It's an attitude that I thoroughly dispise, bah  :mad1:.

I addition he said that the tournament didn't had the feeling of the Olympics, and that the organization was rather poor. He had to eat dry bread (?) and he couldn't get any match tickets (for his family, I guess). Bah bah, what a whiner.

I was just wondering - in the 2016 Rio Olympics, the tennis tournament will be on what surface - clay or hard?

There will be an ATP 500 tournament in Rio from 2014, but the surface hasn't been decided yet.
http://www.tennis.com/articles/templates/news.aspx?articleid=17376

There used to be a Rio de Janeiro Open in 1989-90, but that was played on indoor carpet.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_de_Janeiro_Open

Anyone here from Brazil??? I guess it will be clay perhaps, as most of the South American tournaments are clay, right?

So much for Roddick being "hot" coming into the Olympics . Novak is taking him to the cleaners today!

ouch,  54 minutes. Djokovic was simply toying with Roddick who was pretty much clueless. I kinda felt bad for him. Nole was serving, returning, lobbing out of his mind. I think Nole served 14 aces, 86% first serve, 22 winners vs. AR 5 ... ouch, ouch, ouch ... complete destruction

darn, Raonic lost  :(. he was so close. the biggest problem I have with his game is his movement. his BH is very mediocre. his stamina is also very questionable.
kinda p!ssed with all youngsters. watch Djokovic, Nadal and grandpa Fed winning next 25 slams

I only saw a few games midway through the 3rd set (8-8 through 11-11) and didn't see much quality play with the exception of serving.
Two of my favorite players.  Would have loved to see Raonic come through this one.

Go Jo! :))

With both Djokovic and Murray in top form, their potential SF clash looks even more enticing.
