Through the first two rounds of play in the men's singles tennis tournament of the 2012 London Olympics, things have gone mostly according to plan. Of the top 10 seeded competitors, eight have advanced to the third round (#6 Tomas Berdych and #9 Juan Monaco both made early exits).

Things should begin to get interesting in the third round. Top seeded Roger Federer faces off against Denis Istomin, fresh off of his fourth-round finish at Wimbledon and second-place finish at the SAP Open in February. Second seed Novak Djokovic, winner of the bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics, will face Aussie favorite Lleyton Hewitt. And third seed Andy Murray will continue in his attempt to avenge his Wimbledon finals defeat in a match against Marcos Baghdatis.

Bravo will broadcast the third round action in the United States, with live streaming of the matches on NBCOlympics.com. Television coverage of both the men's and women's third round singles matches begins on Wednesday, August 1st, at 7:00 a.m. EDT. Bravo will continue to cover the singles matches, as well as the first round of mixed doubles, until 3:00 p.m. EDT. Since multiple matches will be underway at any given time, Bravo will jump between the matches in its broadcast.
