BERNARD Tomic said winning an Olympic gold medal at Wimbledon would mean more to him than winning Wimbledon itself.

He'll have to wait another four years for his shot at Olympic glory after he was beaten 7-6 7-6 by 15th seed, Japan's Kei Nishikori, in the first round.

Lleyton Hewitt is now the last hope for a winless Australia.

He, however, has an easier task on paper against Ukraine's world-number-94 Sergiy Stakhovsky, but given his bad run with injuries in recent years, Australian fans will have all fingers and toes crossed.
