"I don't have the words to explain," Del Potro said. "It's similar to winning a Grand Slam (title) or maybe even bigger. It's amazing."
Of course he feels this way even though he's got a real GS. He got the ONLY medal for Argentina. So yeah, it's a big deal for his country. It's like when Novak won the medal at Beijing. Not many are winning medals for Serbia.
Britain gets tons of medals in Olympics.
England hasn't got a gold medal in tennis in over a century- still pretty special
No other player handles victoryor defeat as well as Djokovic. I'm sorry he lost but it just wasn't his day.
I don't know is there anything positive that I can say. I can only say that I am disappointed. I don't know if I should call it bad luck or to say that simply it was not meant to be and that he was better. I have to congratulate to my opponent, he played great. Yes there were chances for the match to go my way, can't deny that. But it is what it is.
I think less of you as a person if you are a fan of Rafael Nadal.
why wasnt this a 5 set match? i never understood why the gold medal match is a different best of 5 when the bronze is still a best of 3.
Yeah it's a really silly rule.
Novak Djokovic nº1!

Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
For a moment, I though the poster meant all slams and olympic gold in the same year. My mistake. For the goldem slam, he only needs Rolan Garros. It's still not happening, but the post is not as absurd as I first thought.
