The gold medal match on Sunday is actually a rematch of the recent Wimbledon men’s final, and it will be on the same surface, as Roger Federer faces Andy Murray. According to oddsmakers, Federer is a slight favorite to win the gold, as he has odds of -170 to win, while the local hero, Murray, has odds of +140 to win. These two have met 16 times and each man has won 8 of those meetings. Their last was in the Wimbledon final this year, with Federer winning 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4. This match will be a three-set contest.

Federer reached the finals by beating American John Isner in the quarters, 6-4, 7-6, and then beating Juan Martin del Potro in a marathon match in the semifinals, 3-6, 7-6, 19-17. Federer is playing for his first gold medal. He has won Wimbledon seven times in his career.

Murray was able to reach the finals by beating Spain’s Nicolas Almagro 6-4, 6-1. He then beat the world’s top player, Novak Djokovic, 7-5, 7-5 in an emotional victory on his home soil. Murray has yet to win Wimbledon, or a grand slam championship, so a gold medal on his home turf would be a big victory. He will have the clear backing of the fans in the match.

The 2012 Summer Olympics will host the gold medal match in Men’s Tennis on Sunday, August 5. For a look at the money lines for each player to win gold, see below.
