RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) Pssssst. Wanna know who's going to win that big first-round matchup between No. 1 Novak Djokovic and 2009 U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics?

If you believe the draw sheet posted online by the International Tennis Federation , the victor of that match scheduled for Sunday is already known, days ahead of time - and it's del Potro.

There's more such info at that site as of Thursday night: 14-time major champion Rafael Nadal apparently is going to lose to Federico Delbonis in a real stunner. Andy Murray is going to improve to 8-0 against Viktor Troicki by beating him in Brazil.

And so on.

It's almost as if the ITF can see the future.

Well, OK, not exactly.

But it sure looks that way at first glance.

Because of what seems to be a computer glitch, the player posted second in the bracket for each first-round contest in the men's singles draw is given credit for a victory in the head-to-head listing accessible by clicking on a blue box that says ''H2H.''

The other posted draws do not have the same issue.

If you were hoping to know precisely how easily del Potro will beat Djokovic, though, there are limits to the powers of the ITF's crystal ball: No scores are listed yet for the Rio matches.
