    Can't blame Nadal, his form was bad at Wimbledon. And playing at a fast grasscourt, you really need to be super good .......

    Another sport with ridiculous Olympics ruling

    Correct me if I am wrong. For tennis early knockout stages, players can only advance if they win best of three but in gold medal match they have to play best of five in MS.

    How is that ruling fair to most top players especially Federer ? It does not only reduce the prestige of the sport but also make the top players more vulnerable to dark horses.

    Yet another bullsh!t sport with stupid ruling from IOC apart from Football.

    Sports like Tennis and football can take or leave the Olympics, they adapt the rules because these players have got more important competitions to play in and don't want to have too taxing a tournament in the middle of their season.

    Tough draw for Raonic, who is slated to meet Tsonga in R2. He better pray his service is in top nick.
