Olympic Tennis

The seedings for the Olympic singles are out … Roger Federer and Victoria Azarenka are on top; but will they end up there?

Djoko is #2 and the hometown favorite of Andy Murray is #3 – with Rafa not playing due to injury. My prediction: a nation of supporters spurs MurrayMan to play superior tennis … and he gets to the finals vs. The Fed (just like Wimbledon).

And the results are a toss-up for me.

On the women’s side, I predict Azarenka will NOT win. But will she be surpassed by Serena or Maria? I predict a big week for the tall and lanky Russian.

What do you think?

If you are interested in watching on TV, I hope you get the Bravo channel; because they will be carrying most of the matches. Here is the lineup:
