Do we know if any tennis players will be flagbearer at the Olympics opening ceremony?
Does anyone know who will carry the flag round for their country in Athens on Friday, and if any are tennis players? I remember Goran Ivanisevic did it for Croatia one year. It is a pretty big honour to be selected from the whole team to carry it, and it is usually someone who has achieved a lot, or is very famous.
Arantxa is playing her 5th Olympics, and has won more medals than any Spaniard in Olympic history, so I would think she is deserving of it, and could be asked, although I think she might be playing in Sopot next week.
Someone like Justine is a possibility. The Belgians on the board can correct me if I am wrong, but she is probably the most famous Belgian sportsperson right now, and definitely the most famous worldwide Belgian having been number 1 in the world so I could see her doing it. Roger Federer is someone else who might do it for Switzerland as he is their biggest star right now. Any other possibilties?
