Re: Federer vs Djokovic. Who is the favourite for the Olympics?
Federer is number one in the world. He's just won the biggest grass tournament in the world. He's done that over seven matches, best of five, over two weeks. He beat a slightly off-the-pace Djokovic in the semi-final to win. He has to be the favourite, don't you think?
Again, due to their only previous meeting on grass (see above) being won by Federer, he clearly has the edge in the final.
I do feel Federer might be more likely to lose early, though, especially if he still has back problems - he almost lost to Benneteau early on in Wimbledon. Djokovic on the other hand looked comfortable in the early rounds.
Ultimately the fact the tournament is shorter (ie. best of three) should suit Federer, who is older and therefore perhaps has less stamina than Djokovic. If the courts play quick and low then again you would think Federer has the edge.
