you really see us doing well for 4 years also? Personally i don't see any new great players coming. For 4 years Balic will be 37, Lackovic and Vori 35-36 . Even if some of them will be in team can't count on them big time. And there are no players which could replace them at the moment, Duvnjak will be here like a world class player, but someone like Marino Maric to replace Vori or Bicanic to replace Lackovic is pretty optimistic. This generation could play on highest level for year or two but then I am afraid we could disappear like it happened after Atlanta

Dunno about the final as I didn't see but that guy Joshua lost his first round match to the Cuban guy IMO, so he had no business being in the final.

The same like robbed Zaninovic girl so Brit gold medalist wouldn't face current world champion in QF

We are multiple champions in junior categories, U-18, U16; you do not have to worry; you never know with injuries, 4 years is a long period, but Las and Vori will be there; Lackovic was our best player by far here...

Feldman took the gold, samano the silver and AJ the bronze according to postcount. Congrats. Rrainer fourth and I choked like a true Frenchie finishing fifth.

Rio, they should be some big parties there. Plenty of time for teams to rebuild.

Just hope the athletics stadium can limit the damage to the winds that impacted on the long and triple jump. Though a practical solution if it's windy go to the other pit where it will be less so.

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".

samo was the best with the rants, yourself top notch with the French hype and Feldman for rants, trolling, humour, laughing at Spain and GB gloating.

Great Olympics. Only French TV commentators ruined a little my pleasure being overly chauvinist. Coming from me, you should know they were awful.
