Why?

I have had to endure much as a tennis fan, but I can never overcome this.

Tremendous serving under pressure from Llodra. Spaniards needed to make some returns, though.

Overall a great match.

Pleased for Tsonga and Llodra but gutted for Ferrer and Lopez. Hope they can pick themselves up for the Bronze.

Huge choke (would've been if it'd gone the other way too, neither seemed able to close it)
Very sad, and I doubt ESP gets a medal after that soul-crushing show

This tournament really sums up Ferrer's career nicely

They were up 2-0 *40-0 in the beginning of the third had 0-40 at one point later on and couldn't break.

Just absolutely gutted for them.

Great result Unfortunately, didn't see much of the match, but caught the end of the 3rd set.

Very nice final for me, will be happy with any team winning, but mainly rooting for Bryans there.

Jo Amazing performance. Awesome that he has a medal guaranteed, he deserves it after all the effort he put in both singles and doubles, very happy for him.

Llodra wasn't at his best, but served well in pressure situations. It was an amazing match, tough luck for Ferrer/Lopez really, they could very well have won.

Hope the French can take the Bryans in the final

Jo for gold

The French are a more classical doubles team with great serves and volleys for both (and great flair!) so I was rooting for them. Plus I think they'll do better in the final against the Bryans.

Shame it had to such a heartbreaker for the Spaniards though.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
