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.

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

An incomparable work of art.

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

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.
