1. Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

2. Murray wins Olympic Gold for the second time after Djokovic is blue shelled by Del Potro. Thanks Del Potro!

Good. It will be a great moment for Stan.

Re: Wawrinka to be Switzerland's flagbearer

I'm happy for Wawrinka. It's a big honour for an athlete and he has earned it. It's also great for our sport when any tennis player is chosen to be a flagbearer so the real tennis fans on here should be happy about this announcement and less concerned about scoring points.

I don't remember the details, but there were definitely matches in Bejing when Wawrinka "carried" Roger through the doubles.

No team player would be close to a gold medal without his teammate(s).

Re: Wawrinka to be Switzerland's flagbearer

I remember Stan said something like "For many people, I am the Swiss who loses" back in 2005 - 2007.

Re: Wawrinka to be Switzerland's flagbearer

Stan gives a nice little interview here about the Olympics - http://edition.cnn.com/video/?hpt=it...-defending.cnn

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

¬¬? was the "arrogant" Roger who declined the ofert and said it will be better to give the chance to another swiss considering he already had the honour 2 times..

I'm very happy for Stan, he deserves the same credit as Roger to win that medal.

Roger Federer

Form is temporary, class is permanent

"The more you lose, the more they believe they can beat me. But believing is not enough, you still have to beat me" RF.

"He is capable of hitting shots which others don't even think about trying" Lendl on RF.

08/07/12 Eternal and immortal RF made H1S7ORY!
