I never said it was the longest match Federer played. I said that was the longest 3 set match ever which is true. Federer has played longer matches but I think those matches were in the finals and also Federer was younger. He could be physically tired.
I know you didn't. I was just pointing out that he's played longer matches during longer tournaments before so it's not likely he's going to be burned out by the Del Potro match. Neither of them should be really unless it goes to a 5th set and then they might tire.
So chuffed for Robson that she got through to the Semis. She's been amazing this Olympics. Thought she played every bit as good as most of the top Womens Players bar the top 5 perhaps and tested Sharapova more than most players have. Would be so huge for her to get an Olympic Medal at this point in her carear. If she keeps playing the way she has been then there's really no reason why she can't be Top 20 and challenging for QF and SF in Slams by the next Olympics. Both of them are great Doubles Players, especially Murray so there's a great chance of them beating the German Pair. Not sure if they can get the Gold if they end up facing Raymond/Bryan but they are more than capable of getting a Medal now.
Just imagine if Murray can end tomorrow with a Double Gold.
Past Seabs. Silly Seabs. Present Seabs. Sad Seabs.
