Birgit Fischer needed to compete in 6 Olympics to be able to even compete (let alone medal) in 12 events.
What Zatopek did in the Olympics more impressive than Phelps ever did it. Wins the 5km, 10km and marathon in the same Olympics.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
