THE LOW DOWN: Could we be headed for a Wimbledon sequel? Maybe so...


Are we headed for a repeat of this year's historic Wimbledon at the Olympics?

It's sure looking good especially if the champs and finalists from that fortnight - Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Venus Williams, Serena Williams - keep their stellar form.

Here's how many games these ballers have lost through two rounds:

Rafa - 13
Fed - 12

V - 10
ReRe - 6

Not bad...not bad at all.

Elizabeth Merrill
for ESPN.com believes a Rafa-Fed gold medal match could legitimize Olympic tennis in the eyes of its own community and would most certainly pull the sport out from Olympic obscurity:
Federer and Nadal have a unique opportunity this week to help the Olympic cause. If the sport's two most dominant players can advance to Sunday's final, on the heels of their breathtaking match at Wimbledon, it would most certainly be a showcase event in Beijing.
My mouth is watering. And, even though a Venus-Serena gold medal match doesn't garner the same excitement and anticipation, the sisters could reign in three medals themselves since they're also competing in doubles. Nothing to argue about there.

Although it's too early in the tourney to say, I think it could be an incredible moment for the sport of tennis. Let's keep everything crossed.
