    Breaking News -- The top 10 tennis players on the planet have decided to stage a junior-tennis-camp-style Super Olympics tournament at the local public courts. They said in a statement that they wanted to have some fun with the game like they did back in the day, before they started playing for their livelihood. The teams (drawn at random from a hat) are as follows:

    Roddick-Robredo
    Nadal-Blake
    Ancic-Nalbandian
    Stepanek-Ljubicic
    Federer-Davydenko

    The format is round robin, with the top four teams making the "playoffs". And then the team with the best record playing the #4 seed, while the #2 and #3 seeds face off in the other semi-final. Once again the players are in this for fun, but obviously still want to win (as well as provide hypothetical tennis talk fodder for us junkies :D).

    So who makes the playoffs, and goes on to win this tourny?

    If I was to pick who wins the tournament, I'd say Ljubicic-Stepanek or Nalbandian-Ancic. All the guys on these teams have played doubles quite alot (I think Nalbandian is lagging behind, but he's played enough and has alot of talent in him) and know what they need to do to get the job done.

    Federer and Davydenko have a smoother game style than the others. It will be interesting to see them playing doubles.

    I think the playoffs go down like this:

    Semifinals
    #1 Ancic-Nalby d. #4 Fed-Davydenko
    #2 Nadal-Blake d. #3 Ljuby-Stepanek

    Finals (what the heck, lets make the finals best 3 of 5 games)
    #2 Nadal-Blake d. #1 Ancic-Nalby
     
    #5
