I'm trying to revive the old tradition of chat threads for every tournament Novak played.

Let's talk about the Olympics here. 馃檪

The draw is tomorrow.

Let's hope for a kind one. 馃檹

I am not sure whether I prefer Zverev or Tsitsipas in his half.

I'm honestly worried way less about any draw and more about the heat/humidity which will be brutal.

But anyway, a kind draw from R1-R3 would be ideal. He needs to save energy early on so he can give it his all for the later rounds.

Yes, the timetable is awkward for me, too,

I am worried about draw, schedule, weather, COVID, injuries 馃槀馃槀馃槀

Anyway, the draw is very soon and hopefully we'll have one less thing to worry about. 馃槂

I'm only hoping he ain't gonna catch COVID, that'd be disastrous. Besides that and some, God forbid, random injury, nothing worries me.

Yes, I've been worrying about COVID for ages 馃槀 And he's taking selfies with everybody.
But we have to trust the measures within that bubble.
Injuries are always a low-key worry, but he looks really fit. Miljan is with him, so he should be ok.
Fingers crossed.

For all we know he took a vaccine :p

But whatever he's been doing has worked so far, so I trust that he knows what he's doing. As you also said, it's a bubble. I'm sure everything will be fine.

I think Zverev is harder than Tsitsipas these days. Tsitsipas is still in shock after that defeat in RG.

I am scared of Struff, but all in all I think it's a fair draw.

I'm glad Carre帽o Busta is on the other half 馃槀

Tsitsipas hates Novak. That alone would help him peak against Novak.

As for the draw.. it's fair..but the heat remains my biggest worry; not any opponent.
