No, they won because they were too good on the day. You know not Thursday, not Saturday and stop making excuses.

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".

They crossed the finish line first. Were they 'too good'? No, they just had a better race today than the USA.

At least Lavillenie has been the most consistent pole vaulter for the last couple of years.

You don't have much of a clue when I spelt it out for you clearly.


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".

Carl Lewis should start accusing of the Bahamas being on drugs now.
What's even funnier is that Lewis had his own issues in -88 with failed tests that were revealed in the early 2000s

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Iron nerves from Renaud. Kudos to him. Samano, what's your opinion about the match.

Yes, Carlton Frederick some issues and he should follow his own advice.

Netherlands winning gold in the women's hockey. Very talented side and quite easy on the eye as well.

The Dutch fans were in fine voice.

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".

They are magic. Can understand Samano of course, he is Croat but AJ is making a fool of himself.
