Well it's not up on the ITF site yet. They started an hour ago, so it shouldn't be too long I hope. I'll post it when it's up.

I guess the draw is more complicated than normal, because they have to separate players from the same country to ensure they're not in the same quarter. But it shouldn't really take this long...come on, ITF.

BBC Sport Website has this article...




Henman to face Novak


Henman has won Olympic silver
Britain's Tim Henman will take on Jiri Novak in the first round of the Olympic tennis event, which begins on Sunday.
Henman, who is seeded fourth, is in the bottom half of the draw and could meet second seed Andy Roddick in the semis.

Roddick plays Brazil's Flavio Saretta in the first round, while top seed and world number one Roger Federer takes on Nikolay Davydenko.

Justine Henin-Hardenne, the top seed in the women's singles, opens against Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic.

Injuries have forced Serena Williams and Jennifer Capriati to withdraw.

I'm not here just to make the numbers up

Tim Henman
Henman will be looking to win a second Olympic medal having picked up a silver in the men's doubles at the 1996 Atlanta Games.

He goes into the tournament with a slight back strain but has a winning 2-1 record against Novak and remains confident he can challenge for a medal.

"Obviously with Roger [Federer] enjoying such a good year he goes into the event favourite - there's no doubt about that," Henman told his website.

"As the event is being played on a hard court I'm sure Andy [Roddick] will fancy his chances too but I've beaten both of them this year.


Academy: Master Tim's net tactics
"If I can stay healthy and execute my intended gameplan as well as I'm capable of then there's also a chance for me too.

"Even though it's amazing just to be a part of the Olympics, I'm not here just to make the numbers up and I'd love to go one better than I did in the doubles in Atlanta."

Thanks all. Federer/Nalbandian qf AGAIN.

Fedex
08-12-2004, 10:10 AM
Yeah, but Jtipson, Nalbandian has his hands full with Dent. Not an ideal 1st rd., after being off tour with injury for awhile. I am, however, excited of the possible extension of the Federer/Nalbandian rivalry. :D I love their matches, but as i said, Nalbandian has a tough way to Federer.

jtipson
08-12-2004, 10:11 AM
Yes, but Dent isn't in the best of form anyway, I'd normally expect Nalbandian to beat him. Can't wait to see where everyone else is in the draw....

Champion number 1
08-12-2004, 10:13 AM
Volandri has Srichaphan... nooooooooooooooooo

On a clay court this match would be perfect but on hard we may as well say by ebye to Pippo in round 1. Some great round 1 matches and this is 1 of them IMO.

You know you could have changed the thread name. This is quite misleading.

I DID just change the name of the thread to "it's here" as soon as I had it. It was "still waiting" before that.

Hmm, interesting Draw. Finally Roddick has the tough one, Federer the easy. 2nd rd Ancic or Haas, then Safin eventually, then possibly Henman in semis. Now if only i could get a printable version, i could go to sleep, as I am in so desperate need of some :)

Oh yeah, Roger's playing doubles too. Too bad they never show doubles :( :mad: because Roger can play great doubles, and is a fun doubles player to watch. I hope he does well in doubles, too, but singles comes first. ;) GO Rogi/Allegro :D Seriously, though, Federer has played like crap in doubles this year :o , so nows time to make all that up :)

08-12-2004, 10:40 AM
Andy and Mardy in doubles are going to get the shit kicked out of them in the 1st rd. :haha: :haha: :rolls: Look at who they draw. :devil: And if by some miracle they get by them, Roger will give Andy another beating, only this time in doubles. :p

federer is +110 to win the gold.
i'm betting on roger.

Not on this surface. I don't think too many can bother him on hardcourt. Haas in the second (possibly) sounds tough, but it's on roddick's best surface, and Haas and Henman are the only ones with records against him.

Federer has about five or six guys in his draw who have records against him.

It will be tougher for Andy at the start, and tougher for Roger near the end.

I think.

Andy Roddick (Boca Raton, Fla.), Men’s Singles, Men’s Doubles On a possible finals match-up with Roger Federer:
“There’s a long way to go before that matchup even becomes relevant to this tournament. I’m more worried about my first round opponent than anything else right now.”

hmm...seems andy does have a tougher draw in the early stages. i think it will be equally tough for both andy + roger in the later stages, providing they get there. the surface does favour andy, but i do not think the greek crowd will give andy the same buzz as the american crowd! also federer is rested from his first round exit in cincy. i wish good luck to them both!

Fedex
08-13-2004, 12:20 AM
I wouldent worry about Younes. He has just come back, off of several monthes of injury, Hrbaty shouldent have too many problems with him. I mean he did just lose 0 and 1 to Henman, so he is not in good form, and it will be a long, long time before he is.

godd luck to all the croats
go ivo, ivan and mario
go for the gold ( medal of any kind will do just fine )
karlović has a good draw
pavel is on a down right now, he looks bad at the moment
ljubičić is got a solid draw, but ivan is crazy for prediction
mario is got a very tough draw
he didn´ t play since wimbledon and it will be hard against haas
but mario can play with everbody, as wimbledon has showed
