The Olympics are right around the corner. Any thoughts on who is likely to do well at this huge event? And does anyone know who in the top 20 are going? Also what surface will it be on? Will the winner automatically have their chances of going far in at the U.S. Open be diminished by mental and physical fatique?

# Olympics: Federer, Roddick, Ferrero, Moya, Philippoussis...

* USO: Federer, Roddick, Hewitt, Nalbandian, Safin...


PS~ Sorry if my picks look too obvious but the above players are most likely!!

US: If Roddick and Federer remain #1 and 2 seeds they probably meet in the final... :rolleyes:

He could definitely win one of these if not both, but he has find that confidence as soon as possible to do that.

I admire Juanqui's honesty. Has any player openly said that he is lacking confidence?

I think Roddick will win the Olympics and Hewitt to win the US as most of the others will be playing Olympics which is very close to US. If Ferrero can get some wins he will be a threat but not really a contender right now.

but to this question of who will win...i think its very difficult to predict....certainly i hope it will be juanqui cos it will boost his confidence but at this stage he needs to get back to the level he was last year

All i would say is that i doubt that the same player win both :)

The one winning the olympic games will certainly not perform that well since it will be really tough in Athen because of the weather and pressure and the US open is coming very fast after the end of the games.

henree to answer your question, the Olympics will be played on the same surface and with the same balls as the USO use. The weather conditions will actually be a little similar too, but maybe a bit hotter in Athens, so I think people who normally do well at the USO will also do well at the Olympics, and I think people who are good at dealing with those hot conditions will also have an advantage. There is a whole week off between the Olympics and the USO and a lot of the players played just as much tennis last year so I don't know that it'll affect them that much.

Seems a lot of the top players are more motivated to win the olympics then the USO so it may be a bigger battle in Athens.

i hope philippoussis does well. I think he's going to get heaps of support from the locals because of his greek heritage.

GO MARK!!!

Ok i know this is a bit far fetched but do you think some players won't put a lot of effort at the olympics so they can go to the Us earlier and get prepared for the USO if they priviledge that one more???

For example Safin said that he didn't really want to go to Athens but that he is obliged to go for his country...

Something else: when the players lose in the 1st rounds at the Olympics can they go home or do they have to stay until the closing ceremony (which is very unlikely since it's on the 29th of august i think while tennis is until the 22nd)...so i admit this is a pretty stupid question but i'm just wondering for the players who want to stay...can they stay after they lose? does anybody know something about that?

Thanks
