Great but Federer can pretty much be proud of getting the Silver Medal, at least he won something, in counter part to Grand Slam losing finalist who normally will never be remmembered after losing.

The biggest thing about the Olympics is representing your country, but other than that inch per inch, Olympics have nothing to do along side with Slams, and not even with the WTF, which is an event that features the best 8 players of the season, with all matches pretty much (normally) could be great finals of any events throught the year.

A service notice for Pete..

Little FEDERER, Roger (SUI) Versus Defending Wimbledon Champ Pete SAMPRAS (USA)
Year Tournament Round Surface Winner Score
2001 Wimbledon 16 Grass (O) R.FEDERER 7-6(7) 5-7 6-4 6-7(2) 7-5

Does he really believes this is the same Federer of then?
