I want Bolt to win, but he doesn't seem unbeatable anymore.

The Chinese own almost everything these days. Just wait until they start playing Football and Tennis. Imagine someone called Ding Dong or something taking Federer's position as the GOAT, or PUSH PUSH taking Rafael Nadal position as the specialist in cooking GOAT.

Re: Olympic Games 2012 London Thread (All other sports besides tennis)

gotta hand it to the brits, fantastic olympics so far. didn't think they'd pull off such a feat, easily topping the medal table of the regulars. team gb will probably end up way north of 20 golds, ~ 25 possible. then again, the overwhelming success makes its football history even more weird.

now take those fucking us open, murray, let's get this non-slam thing over with.

the sports they own are the craftsmanship sports, where willpower, discipline and utter devotion might make yuo climb to the top. china still sucks at most sports that require any kind of creativity, where you need to think outside the box, where there's no "schedule" you just need to adhere to in order to win. sports with actual human beings, you know. chinabots are machines though.

I'm actually surprised that you guys don't have some good tennis players since you already own badminton, table tennis etc.

The best we have is Li Na, and Di Wu,Li Na reached the last 4 in 08 , Di Wu is just a journeyman.
we don't have good coaches in china either,players always plays chinese itf,but the federation need to support them and get them outside china to play,get more experience and improve,funny thing the tennis courts is always full,wherever I go,people plays pretty well,but never commit to a tennis career.

Tennis is also expensive to play in China for some reason,and the courts is limited,only rich people can play

Weather has cleared, if it rains it brings the other guys into it. All I know is a Jamaican will win.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
