    Olympic Tennis

    well whos gonna win the gold medals
    in the womens singles i think anyone could win it, i dont think a lot of the top women are going to play, so im tipping kuznetsova (russia), myskina (russia) or Elia Faria (Italy) to take gold.

    in the mens singles im tipping tommy haas to go one better than sydney and take gold . again i dont think a lot of the top men will be playing, owing to the fact its so close to the US open. if haas doesnt win, maybe Hrbaty (slovakia) or Robredo (spain).

    doubles could be won by anyone really!

    If they go, Henman and Rusedski maybe a good bet for that.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    naa they r just the betting options numbers from the website, i could have taken them out, but didnt....

    seems to me as though Agassi, Hewitt and Coria are the only ones not playing of the major guys...

    Haas, Henman, and Moya would be a good one to take a punt on as dark horses.

    I like your thinking, except for the parts about Henman and Moya

    really most players are just using it as a warm up to the US open, so i think the top players are trying not to peak too early, so i feel an option other than roddick or federer is well worth it if u have a hunch on a player....

    another at good odds in good form is Nicholas Kiefer, he made 2 finals in the last few tournaments, buts been unlucky to run into roddick in the last 3 tournaments, funnily enough tommy will be beating roddick in cinncinatti tomorrow

    Another one might be worth a decent punt would be on Marat Safin.

    which means we are no chance of a medal in the singles

    Woodbridge and Authurs should do well in the doubles though


    Woodgbridges 4th olympic games too (equal record for tennis)


    hard to go past federer or roddick in the singles with niether Lleyton or Aggasi playing

    its easy to go past em, its only a warm up for the US open, as weird as it is, i dont think the top players will want to play 6 or 7 matches in 10 days this close to a grand slam....
