The men’s tournament will as ever take plenty of attention with the talent on show.
Roger Federer moved to number one in the world with his victory at SW 19 earlier in the month so he will be full of confidence and hoping to win the gold at London 2012.
The Swiss certainly showed that he is still one of the best players around, with many now tipping him as the best the game has ever seen.
Novak Djokovic was knocked out by Federer in the semi-finals at Wimbledon so he will need to bounce back from disappointment to come out on top here.
The Serbian has been the man to beat over the last 18 months or so in men’s tennis and is likely to come out as strong as ever in the Olympics.
Rafael Nadal has a tournament to forget at SW 19, exiting in the second round. This could play into his favour though as he has had a week extra rest that the rest of the contenders.
Nadal is a top quality player, no doubt about it and will feel as though he needs to prove himself on this surface and will be delighted to have a second chance at the All English Tennis Club.
Andy Murray was left distraught after being beaten in the final at Wimbledon to Roger Federer. It was the first time the Brit had made it to the final two in this competition.
Murray is another player who now has a second chance to win on these famous courts and give the home fans something to cheer about.
It is all set for a fascinating tournament that a number of players could take the gold in.
Despite being the new number one in the world rankings, Roger Federer is the second favourite to take the gold with odds of 4.00 (3/1) with Ladbrokes.
Novak Djokovic is the man who is being tipped by the bookies to win the event. You can back him at 3.00 (2/1) with Coral.
Rafael Nadal needs to bounce back from a very disappointing couple of weeks in the game. The Spaniard is being offered at 5.00 (4/1) with BetFred.
