The wait for Federer's first singles Olympic medal is soon to be over.

Roger Federer went down in astonishing fashion in the doubles tournament at these London Olympics, but FedEx has been sensational when playing solo.

Federer and teammate Stanislas Wawrinka were ousted from the Games after losing in the second round.

This year's Wimbledon champion has been on cruise control in the singles bracket at these 2012 London Games.

His most recent win comes over Denis Istomin of Israel, who he took down in 7-5, 6-3 fashion. With the exception of a tough first set that was tied at five games, Federer handled Istomin in this critical match.

Switzerland's finest has dropped just one set this entire tournament and it came in the first round of action. Colombia's Alejandro Falla has easily been his steepest competition thus far, and it only looks easier for Federer on his side of the draw.

With the exception of Juan Martin Del Potro, who Federer has dominated in their match ups, there is no other talent that can take down this tennis legend down. The 17-time major winner has defeated Del Po 12 of 14 times the two have squared off, including each of the last six.

What's more?

During that win streak, Federer has allowed just two sets to the Argentine great, both of which came in a two-sets-to-none comeback for Roger at Roland Garros.

Add into the mix the fact that Federer owns these courts at Wimbledon, and there is no question he is destined for greatness in London. His seven titles there are tied for the most of any player in tennis history.

Expect Federer to take the gold medal at these Games, as he continues to play masterful tennis.

Move over Novak Djokovic and the rest of the field. Pump your brakes. The World's No. 1 is on a mission.
