 Bellucci only Brazilian in Olympics tennis singlesRio De Janerio: Thomaz Bellucci will be Brazil`s sole singles representative at the London Olympics, the Brazilian Tennis Confederation (CBT) announced.

The World No.76 received a wildcard for the singles draw at the All-England Club and will pair up with Andre Sa in the doubles, reports said. Marcelo Melo and Bruno Soares will also compete in the doubles event.

"I` m very happy with the news," Bellucci said, hours after being eliminated from Wimbledon with a straight-sets loss to world No.2 Rafael Nadal in the opening round.

Bellucci` s inclusion continues Brazil` s record of having at least one representative in the men` s draw since tennis was reinstated as an Olympic sport in 1988 after a 64-year absence.

Brazil has never won an Olympic tennis medal. Fernando Meligeni went closest at the 1996 Games in Atlanta when he lost the bronze medal playoff against India`s Leander Paes.
