    The ITF believes that all qualified players should be allowed to compete in the Olympic Games, and will continue to do everything in its power to convince the Swiss Olympic Committee to respect the ITF’s qualification criteria and enter Bacsinszky into the 2012 Olympic Tennis Event.

    Some interesting teams,

    After looking at that doubles list, I don't see any reason why Nestor/Pospisil can't make it to the podium. They've had some real quality wins in Davis Cup together, I hope they play one or two events after Wimbledon, but I think they are legitimate medal contenders.
