What are Ferrer's chances to win Gold?

Well, what do you think? He made his best showing at Wimbledon this year.

I say he wins bronze.

Slim. Grass isn't his best surface i'm affraid. Bronze is very possible though

According to MTF the Olympics = MM.

Too bad it's a MM with a GOAT field so Pics still has no chance.

He'll snare a valuable top 4 seed which could make a big difference.

Re: What are Ferrer's chances to win Gold?

Ferrer is #4 seed right. Then he could make the semis if he avoids Tsonga.

As for winning the chances are slim imo. He just can't beat Roger it seems and djokovic is also very tough.

I'd give him 5% chance.

Very good. I can't see anyone outside the top 3 seeds beating him.

Re: What are Ferrer's chances to win Gold?

Very slim, medal is not out of the question though. Everything will depend massively on the draw, even for the top 3. A 3-setter with slick grass against a huge server isn't fun as your 1st or 2nd match.

Re: What are Ferrer's chances to win Gold?

0, at best of 3 someone will outserve him from the court maybe earlier, i don´t think he will make SF like some think, because he is 4th seeded, Berdych or Tsonga in QF should be favorites vs him and i can see others to beat him before.

Even if he gets to SF. He will probably play Fed. Cuz usually 4th seeds play 1st seeds in most events and Ferrer is like 0-12 against Feds. If not, he get blown off the court by a serve bot or ballbasher in the earlier rounds.

Re: What are Ferrer's chances to win Gold?

Silly question...how do the medal rankings work in tennis ? Winner gets gold, runner-up gets silver and 3rd one gets bronze. How do they define the 3rd player ? Do the 2 losers from SF's play eachother to determine that ? How does that work exactly ?

. Amazingly enough you've fluked the right response. As for how they decide it - they play a tennis match against each other - who would have thought, eh?

Yes, but they shouldn't play a bronze medal match. Both SF losers should be giving a bronze medal.

Yeah, because he always does so bad against servebots and ballbashers.

Why

I'm really getting confused here. Do some of you only follow tennis? Have you ever seen the Olympics? It's normal for a bronze medal match to be present in a knock-out tournament.
