    Here's a thread with some formats/rules for the Olympics, in case anyone is wondering.

    MATCH FORMATS

    All matches will be best of three sets, except the finals of the mens singles which will be best of five sets. No tiebreak in the final set.

    Mixed doubles will have a 10 point match tiebreak in lieu of the third set.

    DRAW SIZES

    Mens/Womens singles 64 players
    Mens/Womens doubles 32 teams
    Mixed doubles 16 teams

    PLAYERS FROM THE SAME COUNTRY

    If a country has 2 players in the draw, they will be drawn into opposite halves.

    If a country has 3 or 4 players in the draw, they will be drawn into opposite quarters.

    SEEDS

    Seeds will be determined by the latest recognized ATP/WTA rankings at the time the draw is made.

    CLOTHING

    The typical Wimbledon AELTC predominantly white attire will not apply at the Olympics. Players will be allowed to wear their national colors/uniform regardless of the colors.

    Thanks for posting. It will be interesting to see COLORED clothing against grass background.

    This is unexpectedly informative -I didn't know countrymen were kept apart in the draws. Guys like Ferrer and Wawrinka will enjoy this rare luxury.
