Federer's in the best form he has been in for years, hence his return to number one. He's won the most tournaments from after the US Open last year, the ATP Finals & Wimbledon. He's not inconsistent at all. It's taken Djokovic & Nadal to knock him out of Slams this year and Djokovic just pipped him in the US Open when Federer really should've won.

Personally I don't think it makes that much difference if Murray's on Djokovic's side of the draw. It will help but there's not much difference between Murray, Ferrer & Tsonga. At least one of which will be on his side. Murray just got to his first Wimbledon final and took a set for the first time so there's bound to be more expectation on him but let's not get carried away. Federer's still a class above him, even now he's 30.

You make good points, obviously I want him to win the gold, that would really complete his set.

Federer and Djokovic or obvious favourites, with Tsonga,Murray and Ferrer behind them. I expect 3 of those 5 to pick up the medals.

Should be interesting though.

I'm not bothering with women predictions, because it's too open.

I don't think it's that open in terms of who gets the top three medals. It will be a combination of Fed, Djokovic and Murray imo.

Federer will be the favorite, with Djokoc a close second. I actually think Djokovic will win the tournament tbh. Murray has a shot, especially as it's three sets and that suits him more then five. He should have won the second set against Fed, and if he did in a 3 set match...he would have won, so I think he's got a shot. I dont think he will win, but it's possible. Will be a really great tournament though, Wimbledon was excellent, so I really look forward to part two.

In terms of the women, I think if Serena doesnt get eliminated early she'll win it quite comfortably. If she does have a shock exit (which is unlikely) Sharapova, or Azarenka to win.

PREDICTED WINNER MENS: Novak Djokovic
PREDICTED WINNER WOMENS: Serena Williams

I'm going to pick Djokovic to win Gold, Federer silver and Tsonga to beat Murray for the Bronze.
As for the women's I really believe Stosur for Gold, williams silver and Azarenka to win Bronze over Sharapova.

Although I want Baghdatis to win, I don't think he will make it far.

Womens is Serena's to lose. If she plays even half as well as she did at Wimbledon then she'll win it again. They'll probably win the doubles again too because they're pretty fucking unbelievable. Hope and think Federer will win the Gold too. Kinda pissed I'm predicting the same lineup as Wimbledon mind. Seems like Federer wants this Gold to finish off his collection so much and that will drive him through. Djokovic and Murray both have a lot to prove after Wimbledon though and so would have Nadal so it's a shame he's missing out. Going for a Federer Final against a high outsider like Ferrer or Tsonga. Can see Djokovic vs Murray being the Bronze Medal match depending on which side of the draw they end up in.

They guy I want Federer to avoid is Tsonga, I believe he is the guy who will cause Federer more trouble than Ferrer and Murray. He beat him on grass before. I don't consider Ferrer much of a threat to Federer tbh. That guy is not so good in Grass and has never beat Federer before. He had an amazing Wimbledon so maybe he could be a threat. I think Federer will win the gold. Djokovic to win silver. Tsonga\Murray to win Bronze.

Serena will probably win for Women. Sharapova and Azarenka are favourites too. Serena for gold. Azarenka for Silver. Sharapova for Bronze.

Tsonga has a big chance to win Bronze.

He should have won but he didn't. He never took advantage of the break points he had on that set. It is his fault. Don't forget that the final will be played in the best out of five sets. I don't think Murray has much of chance of winning tbh. In 2008 he got eliminated in the first round if I am not wrong.

If Federer wins, he'll be the only player to win 2 Gold Medals in tennis, another record in the history books.

Federer hasn't won a singles gold medal!
So he would really be pushing it, since winning a singles gold medal is probably only major thing, that he has yet to accomplish.

He won a gold medal in 2008 doubles??? I know it's not singles but it's still a gold medal.
