I still don't get this "the Olympics are mainly for your country" thing which seems to be quite a recent cliche

it's with your country and partly for it for sure but it's not more important than the individual
Djokovic is Serbian, this involves added layers of unconditional non-ironic love for your country inhabitants of select few countries can produce these days. Djokovic's "national hero" status is different to Federer's "national hero" status in Switzerland too.

"the Olmypics are mainly for your country" as a recent cliche - are we talking about Olympics in general or tennis at Olympics?

I´m not of fan of Djoko. BTW fan is short from "fanatic" which means "crazy person", "obsessed". I try to be objective and reasonable, not crazy and delusional.

If you chose to be latter, it is your problem ...

What I mean by this is that as much as Federer is loved in his country, he transcended it, he's "international", an icon, the world's property now.

Djokovic is still much more "country-bound", and that is a country with a rich recent history, Djokovic represents Serbia all over the world and he sort of carries loads of national pride on his shoulders. He simply HAS TO do it at this tournament not only for himself, but much more for the people of Serbia.

Otherwise Sebastian Coe would have been delighted when Steve Ovett beat him in the 800 metres.

I don't know, what I read recently, and I read especially a tennis forum

Besides, I agree with you about different national contexts for Djokovic and Fed but I think Djokovic also wants it for him

I won't be denying that he wants it for himself too, of course he does and I exaggerated it a bit in my first post in this thread, but that "winning it for Serbia" factor is huge.

Bookmakers are all about market, public opinion. But for me what is strange that Fed very easy draw is not changed the odds yet on market. Maybe it takes some time, maybe people doesnt know draw yet ? Fed virtually has Bye until final,Joker , Tsonga and Murray have one helluva draw, by common sense Fed has to be favorite now..?
