Who is going to win gold?

Okay, I'm going to make a prediction. Amelie will win the gold (would prefer it to be Mary though! )

If you look at past winners, Amelie is a cert for the title!

1992 - Jennifer, wins her first major title after a couple of years of promise

1996 - Lindsay, wins her first major title after a couple of years of promise

2000 - Venus - this doesn't follow the pattern but bare with me

2004 - Amelie, wins her first major after (more than) a couple of years of promise.

Amelie seems much more relaxed when playing for her country, has a 2 year unbeaten streak in Fed Cup and won't get as nervous as she would in a Grand Slam final. Guy Forget will also be on hand to give her support/calm her down.

What do you think?

Also a thread where Maria Shaparova won't be mentioned as she's not going to Athens

Yes...I'd have to say that Amelie seems more at ease playing for her country than it is in a GS. I would dearly love to see her win the Olympic Gold...Perhaps, that would be a prelude to a better future, coz she'd probably grow in confidence whereby winning a GS is a possibility. When Momo's confident, she has a game that's almost unbeatable. Varying strokes and a wicked single-handed backhand? My bet would be that she'd win the Oly Gold..And a GS within the next 2 years.

I don't think Justine will play.

I say:

Gold - Mauresmo
Silver - Myskina
Bronze - Zvonareva
