Croatia hit by double withdrawal

Croatia have suffered a double blow ahead of the Olympic tennis event with the withdrawal of both Ivan Ljubicic and Ivo Karlovic.  Ljubicic, a former world number three who has slipped to 51 in the rankings, pulled out with an unspecified injury.

His place has been taken by Devon Mullings of the Bahamas, the world 1025, who now plays Argentina's Agustin Calleri in the first round.  Karlovic withdrew on Friday after developing a high temperature.
His place was taken by Chinese youngster Yu Xin Yuan, who gets his tournament underway against Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic.

Karlovic, the world number 18, recently defeated Roger Federer in Cincinnati.
Croatia had already lost Mario Ancic, who pulled out earlier this month because of illness, and have Marin Cilic as their only men's hope.

The tennis tournament begins on Sunday 10 August.

1202: Just for the tennis fans though, here's Nikolay 'Eeyore' Davydenko after his earlier win over Ernests Gulbis: "I'm happy to win and but I didn't enjoy playing in these tough conditions. If I don't play tennis for a few days I don't care really. I don't know how many days I can hold the racket just feeling so tired playing tennis."
search me lol

That's exactly what I said in the match thread, they should have been able to afford roofs.

Guys, here is a good link for multiple court coverage.  So far I have court1 and court 2.  There are four tennis links, that I can see.  I know courts 1 and 2 are covered.  I don't know about the others.  BBC are covering centre, so that's 3 courts to choose from.  Good quality, too.

Scroll down and you'll find the Beijing tennis streams.

Edit: Centre ourt coverage further down the page, for the people who don't have it on interactive.

The BBC have the match score completely blocking the upper part of the screen.  It's ridiculous.  How can anyone be so thick?  I'm watching Nadal-Starace and it's blocking Rafa's head.  It's so distracting.

It only improves when they switch to country abbreviations, as opposed to listing their names with the score.

Starace is my new hero.  He's playing like an absolute maniac.  You wouldn't believe how many break points he has saved in the 2nd and 3rd sets.
