Re: Olympic Games / London 2012

Does anybody know how the seeds are made?
Is Llodra/Tsonga gonna be seed n°4 in the double draw thanks to the number 5 double ranking of Llodra?

Looking at the 2008 olympics draw it seems that 2 teams from the same country can't be in the same part of the draw. Is that correct ?

Re: Olympic Games / London 2012

The draws are out and it looks like it's Gilles who has the best draw. We have to wait at least 2 rounds to see the chance of french players.

For doubles it's a bit of lotery sometimes but medal is expecting by the FFT. They want at least one medal in single, doubles or mixed maybe.

Mixed? I don't see that happening. Who would be the pair?

I don't know Cornet/Llodra maybe but I'm not sure they'll be able to play it there are few teams only.

Gilles has a good draw but he's not his best on grass so he could lose to anyone. If it was hardcourts I actually would like his chances to get to the semis. I hope I'm wrong but for me I think Gasquet and Tsonga have better medal chances here despite the harder draws. The doubles is up in the air, I think anyone including both French teams could medal.

Gilles Simon-Roger Federer

Re: Olympic Games / London 2012

2 sets on grass it's a bit a lotery. Llodra/Tsonga are a great team imo then it depends of many things including luck.

Re: Olympic Games / London 2012

We have seen the start of Gasquet/Baggy on french TV atm. Two games

Tsonga could be on http://www.francetv.fr/sport/les-jeu...es-2012/direct But not sure as he's not on center court

For mixed Llodra/Mladenovic will try to make the cut. Draw is made today but with their ranking won't be easy.

Re: Olympic Games / London 2012

Tsonga won 25-23 in the third vs Raonic. Gasquet and Benneteau are in quarter of double

No mixed doubles cut was too high

Re: Olympic Games / London 2012

Benneteau/Gasquet are in semis Next...Bryan brothers. Allez !

And now Llodra/Tsonga won against Melo/Soares. We're sure to have a medal, I hope it will be for silver or gold between the 2 French teams...

The end for Tsonga in single.

Clément * Paire * Gasquet
Djokovic * Mahut * Llodra * Tsonga * Dimitrov * Chardy * Simon * Federer
