    Doesnt work like that, draws on the atp tour are randomly done so that the number 3 seed has a 50/50 chance of being draw on the same side of the draw as the number 1 or 2.

    Please anyone of the four but James Blake.

    I'm hoping to see
    Gold: Novak
    Silver: Gonzo
    Bronze: Rafa

    Gee how disappointing a year this is turning into for Federer and what a time for Blake to finally beat the (for the meantime anyway) world number 1. I'd like to see Novak win it now but I'd still place my bets on Nadal winning gold.

    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 *********!

    I love Rafa, but Novak at 2.62 vs. Nadal on hardcourt is too good to not take up. I put my bias aside and laid down the dough for Novak.

    Whoever wins I'll be happy now.

    Novak & Rafa produced a great game, delighted for Rafa and feel for Novak at the same time. You could see it meant so much to both players a real testiment as to why tennis should be in the Olympics.

    Novak delighted as he claimed bronze. Happy for him, pity he had to meet Rafa in the semi.

    A gold medal is a gold medal regardless of if it's in singles or doubles, but I'm still guessing he will be a bit pissed he's never going to win an Olympic singles medal.
