    Anyone know if the seeds for the Olympic tournament are done using rankings before or after Wimbledon?

    i think Joker will still be #1 seed. and it will be kind of weird because semifinal losers will play again one more match to see who gets the bronze medal.

    They will use the rankings from the week that they do the draw.

    If a country has 2 players in the draw, they will be put in separate halves. If a country has 3 or 4 players in the draw, they will be placed in separate quarters.

    If Federer wins on Sunday, and is #1, he will be the #1 seed.

    For a moment I almost hoped that wouldn't happen because Roger hasn't won Olympics as the #1 seed. Then it struck me how ridiculous I was being because the only way he doesn't get the seed, if what you're saying is right, is if he doesn't win the final here. No way do I want that to happen (although I do like Murray). :evil::(
    Roger cares a lot more about Wimbledon and we've gone through more than enough share of tough losses over the past couple of years.
