The Australian Bernard Tomic thinks that an Olympic gold is more important than winning a Grand Slam.
"You can not put into words what it means to win an Olympic gold. It’s like a fifth Grand Slam and it's something where I would give my best, much more than a Grand Slam."
Tomic has exited in the first round in the last four tournaments, including Wimbledon (against David Goffin) where they will play the Olympics. Tomic also said that the formula of winning two sets out of three until the final (which will be played three out of five) will favor players with a lower ranking.
"I think the top players have more advantages over the three set matches to five. It 's harder to beat them when the matches get longer. In a match that is best of three sets rather than five we have a better chance of beating them, so the opportunity is there for many, myself included. "
