What's more likely to happen for the Americans in the olympics

The last olympics were Blake Ginepri and Querrey. Unimpressive trio but Blake was thisclose to a silver due to beating Big Bad Fed.

This time the top is more accomplished with Roddick there. What's more likely to happen next week for the Americans

Medaling
All 4 lose their first matches
Neither

Neither.

Roddick probably wins his first, loses to Djokovic.

Isner in all likelyhood will lose to Fed, that's if he even makes it that far.

The only thing for 100% certain is Donald Young will lose to Seppi. The rest is up for grabs, that's why they play the games.

Ummm medaling I guess, since that'd mean Roddick losing to Klizan

Americans win kill it. Roddick will win gold and Harrison will duke it out with young for silver and bronze.

Similarly in doubles it will be an all American medal affair with the Bryans taking gold and Roddick/Isner picking up silver...etc...etc...

NID.

According to the draw, the best Americans can do is Isner-Young and Roddick-Harrison semis. If Young and Harriser somehow play each other, it'd be for Bronze. Of course that would assume Isner beats Fed, Roddick beats Djok and Young and Harrison win any matches at all next week

Everything is possible then. Roddick is 5-3 against the great Serbian faker and he won 4 of the last 5 matches they've played.

A-Rod is a bad matchup for Novak...Novak doesn't have a good fast serve return. If Andy serves over 70ish percent first serves Novak is going to have real trouble.

Yea I didn't look it all up. I just wanted to post something ridiculously pro-American since posters here love to poop all over the current state of American tennis. Which is what this thread is really about isn't it?

The thread title actually reads "How bad is American tennis, just how much do those guys suck now?"

young/seppi = usa loss

isner/rochus = john should win but he could easily lose it.

harrison/giraldo= santi can beat him.

roddick/klizan= you would hope andy can win this and salvage the poll.

C. Neither.

so much for Nole being able to compete on fast surfaces eh? Return GOAT? I think not

He's like Agassi on the return, he rips a big ball but against the bigger/faster servers he doesn't have the hands of a Fed or even Murray.

Nadal has the same problem.

Neither but I don't even think winning a singles medal would really change the perception unless it was a run by some young American...even then, I think people would call it fluke.

It would have to be a gold for the guys to pay attention. Because a gold medal feels way more important than wining a MS 1000 event.

Doesn't it say it all that the oddsmakers believe Fish has a better shot of medaling than Young? Can't say I disagree either.

Roddick will win Silver.

We need a little bit of Nebraska's bomber in our lives
A little bit of Roddick by our side
A little bit of A-Rod's what we need
A little bit of duck is what we see
A little bit of Stephen in the sun
A little bit of servedick all night long
A little bit of Kid-Rod, here I am
A little bit of Andy makes we're all men

I think they have a shot at it, i think in order of chances Isner, Roddick, Harrison, Bob Bryan, Mike Bryan, Serena, Venus, McHale, Huber, Raymond, Lepchenko, Young. Oh I forget only 4 are competing in men's singles, oh well Young has a reputation to prove hope he doesn't upset anyone. I wouldn't pick Isner as most likely if its best of 5, but he has more of a shot now its best of 3. BTW i think they are faves to win 4 of the 5 golds.
