*Olympic Games*
 
It's time to make a special thread. :)

L'Equipe (today)

LLodra bon pour le service
Michael Llodra, qui avait abandonné au 1er tour de Cincinnati la semaine dernière, à cause d'une épaule et d'un biceps gauche douloureux, a été rassuré avant de s'envoler pour Pékin aujourd'hui avec Arnaud Clément.
"Il n'y a pas de lésion musculaire. C'est un nerf qui vient se pincer quand il sert beaucoup. Il faut gérer ça. Si la douleur persiste après les JO, on fera peut-être une infiltration", a dit son coach Olivier Malcor.

Good news, his injury is not important. He can play. :angel:
They leave today.

MERCI! :worship: And especially nice to see it started with a good news!
(Also thanks so much to everyone for all the news and pictures posted lately, it took me a while to check it all, but I've got a good time :) )

Does anyone know when the doubles draw comes out, is it on Thursday as well?

Sports Illustrated's Brian Cazenueve made these medal picks for tennis:
TENNIS
Men
Singles
G: Roger Federer, Switzerland
S: Rafael Nadal, Spain
B: Novak Djokovic, Serbia
Hardcourt surface gives Federer the edge over Nadal.

Doubles
G: Bryan & Bryan, U.S.
S: Llodra & Clément, France
B: Federer & Wawrinka, Switzerland
U.S. hasn't won a medal in this event since 1988.

No, he was just ... sleeping. lol
He and Micka/Gilles had a rest after their flight. It seems their absence at press conference was a bit a weird, cos just before, all the swim team (33 ! ) was present there.

I hope he won't miss the next one !

In fist round, they get the australian open winners and one of the best team of the year: Erlich and Ram (seed 3). Well, It will a tough tournament and lose in first round could happen.

i just saw that. i think it's worse than getting the bryans... they'd probably have more confidence playing the bryans :sad:

will another lonely planet guide be needed? lol

Yes to visit the great wall of China :angel:

Ram and Erlich have just reached the final in Cincinnati and anymay all their draw are tough. The choice of the seed is a little bit weird.

Just seen this horrible table called doubles draw... What a stupid senseless way to pick seeded players, it would be pretty equal if they made singles draw according to players doubles rankings :mad:

Well, we know that these two guys can be simply unbeatable sometimes, so everything is still in their hands. People say tennis is mostly about mentality rather than physics, and hopefully theirs heads will be alright because they've come to Beijing to take a medal.
Allez les gars :rocker2:
(meanwhile Russians draw, at least in doubles, is relatively not bad :angel: )

They play tomorrow in the evening.

Court 3

starting at 10:30
MS 1 (A) YU Xinyuan ( CHN ) vs (17) BERDYCH Tomas ( CZE )
Followed By
WS 1 VAIDISOVA Nicole ( CZE ) vs (15) CORNET Alize ( FRA )
not before 17:00
WS 1 (IP) MORITA Ayumi ( JPN ) vs ERAKOVIC Marina ( NZL )
Followed By
MD 1 (IP) GUCCIONE Chris / HEWITT Lleyton ( AUS ) vs (IP) CALLERI Agustin / MONACO Juan ( ARG )
MD 1 CLEMENT Arnaud / LLODRA Michael ( FRA ) vs (3) ERLICH Jonathan / RAM Andy ( ISR )

I won't be at home tomorrow so I couldn't follow it but maybe it's better. A big part of the medias who believed in this team for a medal are less optimistic since the draw is out lol

Here the complain of Bhupathi about the choice of the seed.
