One of the few he was lucky with.

Last year played tsonga in 2 of the 4 slams and 8 times overall. This year played Raonic 3 times already, del potro 5 times already.

Re: The Olympics Draw Thread

It's started I guess

9!!!!!!!

Rafael Nadal Perera, the best there was, there best there is and the best there will ever be
14 Grand Slams while he was plagued with injuries is remarkable and he isn't done just yet
Mad respect for the most beautiful player I've ever seen, Roger Federer
People talking about Nole winning 4 in a row and Rafa/Roger not being able to. Peak Nadal and Federer would have won multiple CYGS against this field

Kavcic/Klizan/Verdasco or Monaco/Typsarevic, DelPo for Nole/Ferrer
Karlovic is hardly dangerous. He had injury, he was limping on crutches few days ago, he hasnt practiced couple of weeks. Why he even wants to play unprepared ? .Maybe he just wants to enjoy Olympic athmosfere, to be part of big Olympic family.

And he knows if he withdraws, someone from doubles tournamant takes his place, so situation is different than with Nadal or Monfils.Nadal let other Spaniard in, Monfils let other Frenchman in. If Karlo withdrew, he couldnt let other Croat in, maybe it is why he decided to play.

From his twitter yesterday :
`" I`m walking with the limp, but not in a cool way "

"I still feel pain and all, but.. its the Olympics.. so.. WUZZZUUP LONDON?? "

ITF Olympic Tennis ‏@OlympicsTennis
30 mins until the draw for the Olympic Tennis Event starts.....

I think no stream, just twitter

Roger Federer

Form is temporary, class is permanent

"The more you lose, the more they believe they can beat me. But believing is not enough, you still have to beat me" RF.

"He is capable of hitting shots which others don't even think about trying" Lendl on RF.

08/07/12 Eternal and immortal RF made H1S7ORY!

Re: The Olympics Draw Thread

UK is only on GMT (GOAT time) between October and March.

We are currently on BST. 1 hr ahead of GMT.
