Yeah he did, but he still would want to win the singles gold medal. He will get much more satisfaction from it. I agree that a gold medal is a gold medal, but it's the feeling of accomplishment when you have finally accomplished everything that you could ever accomplish.

I dont think he does to be honest. In my opinion, on every surface aside from clay (which Murray isnt the best on) he outclasses the guys ranked above him by far. I think the gap between the top three and the rest of the field on hard, and grass is pretty big. In a bronze medal match, Murray will beat Tsonga and Ferrer, or anyone else outside of the top four.

He should have won but he didn't. He never took advantage of the break points he had on that set. It is his fault. Don't forget that the final will be played in the best out of five sets. I don't think Murray has much of chance of winning tbh. In 2008 he got eliminated in the first round if I am not wrong.
There's a difference between 2008 and now. Murray will have undoubtidly gained confidence from his Wimbledon run, he's a stronger player overall. In tennis, the entire match can depend on a few points here and there changing the outcome of the match. He didn't take advantage of those moments in the Wimbledon final, that doesnt mean to say he wont take advantage of them if given the opportunity at the Olympics, he's more than capeable, so he's got a shot imo.

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

Re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

Tsonga can win bronze. When he's on, they are few who can beat him. Incosistancy is his problem though

Re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

Tsonga has beaten all of the top players before, but never on grass.

Below him you mean. His Wimbledon match against Ferrer was really close. It was not like Murray actually outclassed him. Against Tsonga, yeah he pretty much outclassed him. But seriously, I don't think that will happen in the Olympics. If they face, it will be much closer. Tsonga has beaten the Top guys before. Tsonga just needs to be a little more consistent. There is not much difference between Murray, Ferrer and Tsonga imo.

Yes I agree. But Federer and Djokovic are better than him. I don't think Murray can upset them. Just look at the Wimbledon Final. In slams, Murray fails to beat them. He won't be able to beat them in the Olympics.

Re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

When did Roddick career started to go down? Was it after the Wimbledon 2009 final against Federer?

Re: Official Tennis Discussion Thread

^Pretty much, he hasn't done anything in the Grand Slams after that. Not sure if it's the loss at Wimbledon or he's just declining.
