Other tennis players recently announced as flagbearers include Horia Tecau of Romania and Stephanie Vogt of Lichtenstein. They along with Radwanska join Novak Djokovic (Serbia), Rafael Nadal (Spain), Max Mirnyi (Belarus) and Maria Sharapova (Russia) as the other tennis players selected by their countries to lead their teams during the opening ceremony on July 27th.
Wimbledon champion Roger Federer is on the very short list of candidates to be selected as flag bearer for Switzerland but he has yet to decide if will accept the honor if chosen. Federer was Switzerland's flag bearer at two other Summer Games.
