All three Olympic medalists already out of USO

....and the "fourth medalist" Taylor Dent is out too. He just lost to Mathieu in the fourth set TB.

Perhaps this shows there's an argument to be made for top players to not go to the Olympics.

Then again, all four players (Massu, Fish, Gonzo, and Dent) don't exactly have great records at the USO to begin with.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: All three Olympics medalists already out of USO

how douchey

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

Gonzalez had that one year where he should have reached the semis, but instead choked it away against Schalken in the quarters.

Re: All three Olympic medalists already out of USO

All 3 (or 4) players aren't the greatest to begin with, so no surprise they're all gone early.

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas

0 out of the 4 semifinalists of Athens men's single remains in USO singles.

1 out of the 8 semifinalists of Athens men's doubles remains in USO singles.
5 out of the 8 semifinalists of Athens men's doubles remains in USO doubles.

Re: All three Olympic medalists already out of USO

Two of the three women's singles medalists are out too, with only the number 1 player still in it, and even she struggled. Hmmm.....

Re: All three Olympic medalists already out of USO

um..... Justine and Amelie are still in the draw. Myskina didn't win any medal, she choked away her semis vs Christine (led 5-1) and played a crap match to lose to Alicia for the bronze match.

Re: All three Olympic medalists already out of USO

Year 2000 olympic medalists are struggling to - Di Pasqale lost and Haas survived a 5 set thriller. What conclusions can we draw from this?
Certainly they still haven't fully recovered from that difficult week 4 years ago.

God ... the point of this thread is totally faulty ... I can't believe it's garnered so much support.

I didn't know that this was a surprising thing.
