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

Tearkovic disagrees.

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.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

I like Novak but if he can't do it at USO I would love Delpo to win it.

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.
