I'm in tears.
I hate tennis.

Bienvenue au club, je t'invite à la thérapie de groupe "tenniscolic anonymes qui aimeraient pouvoir se débarasser de leur addiction entraînant des dommages post match assez grâves (dégoût, déprime, tristesse) ".

I hope we all feel better by tomorrow Especially the players.

Anyway, Arnaud holds another record! Longest three set match in Olympic history!

Re: *Olympic Games*

He's the king of the lost record matches.
Tomorrow I won't see, I won't follow the match, no way !!!!!!!!! Today was horrible for me, I don't want to watch tennis until the us open. I need a break.
Anyway the won't win bronze, they're too tired and too devasted for that.

Re: *Olympic Games*

It seems I've picked the right day to miss their match...
Thanks to everyone for your reports, opinions and match details - and hope you all feel better after that nerve-racking ending

Marine, thank you for posting the interviews and making translations, they are very good (why didn't you post them in here but to the other thread?) Keep it up! I'd say their reactions are surprisingly positive (well, more positive that could be expected).
So Federer has given up on singles and aiming to become number one in doubles now? It's unbelievable that there is a Swedes vs Swiss guys battle for gold while two other even if not the best but at least the most outstanding teams will fight only for bronze.

P.S. So we needed them to lose a match to get a whole lot of coverage, streams and photos?

"Those who are skilful and really the best ones don't have a bad luck [reasons of their falls are in themselves only]." - Ole Einar Bjørndalen, who is not just best of the best; he can do everything.

my gut feeling was right! (how could it not feel the loooooooongesttttttttt)

problem for arnaud is, he always comes out the losing side of the longest battles

are they playing again today? against the bryans?

edit: yes. same time, same court.

federer's team is the only singles players team that has got to medals stage. they are the exception, the regular doubles teams are still better than most
