I think Spain might still have 12. They can still replace nadal in doubles. But i hope they replace the whole team with Verdasco and Marrero, because they are having a good partnership lately.

Olympic tennis is not like Slams or even Masters where you mostly play for yourself. Having fellow countrymen athletes(both tennis and other sports) in the stands cheering for you makes it pretty special I assume. Three sets and grass will only help the underdogs further.

I mean most countries would be extremely happy with just 1 let alone 3.

Serena olympic gold, Williams sisters olympic gold and Bryan brothers. 3 possible gold medals for Tennis alone for one nation.

Make that 4. Very good chance in mixed doubles too.

Be happy with what you have got i.e. an extremely good chance to get Gold in 4/5 events

I think they'd trade all these for a favourite in the Men's singles. At least a young one. They are fine everywhere else for this year, but with all of their candidates above 30, they won't be for much longer without some fresh blood.

good mixed doubles choices are Serena, Venus, Huber, Raymond partnering with the Bryan Brothers. They have a lot of choices i hope they make the perfect one as they can snatch 4 of the medals.

I would think it would be Raymond/Mike and Huber/Bob(if they can send two).
