Re: Tennis Discussion Thread - (Olympics)
This could be such a major turning point for Murray. Winning Olympic gold is just as much (if not more) of a big deal than winning a slam. The Olympics happen once every four years, slams happen four times every single year. This was the biggest match of his career, and he nailed it.
First of all this tournament he's proved he can win a five set final, and second he's proved that he can beat the world number one and two in one tournament. He's got momentum on his side, and he should feel very good coming into the US Open this year. His strongest slam, just won the Olympic final against the world number one. He's got a big shot there. So, so happy for him, it just feels like he's just overcame this huge obstacle and now he should be able to play to the standard we know he can.
Ivan Lyndll has done wonders for him. We can officially consider the pairing a success.
Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.
