I didn't expect that JMDP would have recovered from the SF to win this match. Congratulations to him and Argentina for the Bronze medal
Come to think of it, JMDP recovered well after losing to Ferrer at the Davis Cup final --- even though he lost both times, he didn't show too much physical fatigue when playing Rafa last year in Sevilla.
This time, he executed his game to his best and played an excellent match against Djokovic. The fact that Djokovic served much better than JMDP, yet still lost, shows the improvements that JMDP made to his game. I'm so happy for this win, I don't think I've ever been so happy to see an athlete win bronze medal at the Olympics before. To an outsider it might "just look like bronze," but after seeing how JMDP played Federer in the semi-final, and how honestly happy and proud he was to beat Djokovic for 3rd, the tennis singles bronze medal shines something special this year!
Gonzo would be proud
