Falla, number 51 of the ATP ranking, will face Federer, seeking his first Olympic gold in singles and become the third player in history to win Wimbledon and the Olympics in the same season.

The above were the British Arthur Gore in 1908 and the Spanish Rafael Nadal, notably absent in London due to injury in 2008. But there is the peculiarity that Federer could do it on the same surface - grass - and the same stage of Wimbledon, and that Gore won in 1908 on indoor London and not the iconic All England Tennis Club.

At William Hill Sports, Roger Federer is 7/4 and Alejandro Falla is 500/1 to win a Gold medal on the Olympic Games at London.

Falla and put in serious trouble Federer in the first round of Wimbledon 2010 when he won the two opening sets the Swiss star. Even in the fourth quarter could have won the decisive game with his serve, but Federer turned the score before winning 5-7, 4-6, 6-4, 7-6 (1), 6-0.

"(Federer) is always playing the favorite here. I know him very well and he knows me very well," said Falla. "I'll have to play my best tennis betting if I want a chance to win, but we're talking about Roger, who just won Wimbledon for the seventh time."

In the latest edition of Wimbledon, the Colombian reached the third round after defeating his first game in the American John Isner.

"Falla 2-0, Federer was here. I see it very difficult but not impossible," said Gabriel Sanchez, president of the Colombian Federation of Tennis. "These games are played the winner of two sets, sometimes you can skip the surprise."

The draw made on Thursday was relatively benign for the four Argentine competition, among which stand out and Juan Martin del Potro Juan Monaco, both in the top 10 in the world.

Del Potro, seeded eighth and ninth in London racket in the world, opens against Croatian Ivan Dodig.

"We have a good Olympics, because we are very excited," said Del Potro after training for one hour.

Monaco, who this week was first installed in the Top 10, will face Belgium's David Goffin (63 in world rankings) and Carlos Berlocq (38) will face Russian Alex Bogomolov (54).

Goffin reached the fourth round at Roland Garros last, which fell to Federer.
"It is a rival to worry about and play the best level," said Monaco. "But the feelings are good and when one is having a good time not so much the surface change and adaptation."

Meanwhile, David Nalbandian won the most difficult opponent of the delegation of Argentina in the first round, where they will face the Serb Janko Tipsarevic, seventh-seeded and eighth ATP rankings.

Santiago Giraldo, another Colombian in the men and the world number 43, will face American Ryan Harrison, 52 of the ladder.

The Olympic tournament is played singles at the best of three sets, except the final, which will be the best of five.

In the doubles, luck was too elusive for the couple who are Nalbandian and Eduardo Schwank, who will debut against the French Michael Llodra and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, seeded second in the tournament.

In the women's doubles, Argentina's Paola Suarez and Gisela Dulko rivals have also complicated the Chinese couple that make Li Na and Zhang Shuai.

"The picture has been very tough in doubles," admitted the Argentine coach and former team captain Tito Vasquez Davis. "Schwank Nalbandian will face a very good partner and is a difficult game. The girls, too. The Chinese pair is very good."

While in the individual, the Colombian Mariana Duque will face Russia's Maria Kirilenko (15th in the world) and the Paraguayan will Cepede Veronica with the American Varvara Lepchenko (41).
