Nenad and Nole played very well in their DC tie vs Russia even both were half dead. But the Czech pair are tough. Good luck.

Thanks

Good thing Beijing is in the same time zone as we do. I will be able to watch the ceremony during that time.


Maybe I should tell Novak that he shouldn't think about me all the time, so he can focus on winning the gold.

Too many adoring women and not enough time - that's his problem

Good luck to Nole I'm having a bit of a nightmare morning so not much time here til later - but still wanted to say good luck

Re: Going for the Gold in Beijing-- Novak at the Olympics!

Here is a link to a YouTube clip of Nole practicing in Beijing
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrtPi...o-beijing.html

Also - video and interview (in Serbian) of him arriving in Beijing
http://greattennisphotos.blogspot.co...o-beijing.html

"I'm excited and I can't wait to go out on the court. I represent my country on one of the most important competition. It's a great honor and pleasure to be here, and of course I'll try to win one of the medals."

"Nenad has been here for three days already, same as Janko (Tipsarevic). Unfortunately I couldn't come earlier because of lot of responsibilities on other tournaments, but I will try to practice with Nenad so we could be ready for the beginning of the tournament."

"I'm full of positive energy because I will stay in Olympic Village and will live among other great sportsmen from all over the world. Everything else will be easy."

Re: Going for the Gold in Beijing-- Novak at the Olympics!

So why are Bryans first seed? Like in Toronto. Nestor/Zimonjic are 1st almost a month.

I don't know exactly how they do doubles seeding, but I think they combine the doubles points of both players. Nole must have had enough points to not drag Nenad down too much. Look at Nestor. He and his partner aren't even seeded even though Nestor is the #1 doubles player in the world.

Thank you, I forgot points. Nenad is 4th now. As for Nestor I think it's nonsense. But, rules...

The doubles rankings are based on both players. Nola and Nenad are seeded only because Nole's singles ranking is high enough. And only because the new system counts the single ranking.

I understand that *and forget who play with who*, but why in Toronto Bryans were 1st?

Re: Going for the Gold in Beijing-- Novak at the Olympics!

Just like the ranking system in singles. The combined ranking points of Nenad and Nestor are less than the Bryans. I think they just passed them this week.

Re: Going for the Gold in Beijing-- Novak at the Olympics!

Ginepri is a dangerous first round but after that I think it gets easier, especially with Nalbandian in his quarter.

TT Singles Career High: 7

Singles Winner: 2010 Bucharest, 2007 Indian Wells
Doubles Winner: 2012 San Jose, Queens (w/hallso) 2011 Los Angeles (w/hallso)

If he plays like he did against Berrer in Cincy Ginepri will be a huge challenge. Just have to hope his head is on straight and his game is on.
