Olympics F: Bryan/Bryan def. Llodra/Tsonga, 6-4, 7-6

Congrats on the Career Golden Slam. An Olympic Gold was the only big thing that was missing from their resume.

Re: Olympics F: Bryan/Bryan def. Llodra/Tsonga, 6-4, 7-6 for Gold

Well deserved!

Apparently MP was amazing but I missed it as I channel hopped to the mixed

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: Olympics F: Bryan/Bryan def. Llodra/Tsonga, 6-4, 7-6

Llodra
Few very good volleys from Llodra, but too many errors.

Bryans were the better team by far. Their serve were almost untouched(Edit: in second set). At one point they had won some 21 odd straight points on serve.

That get at match point

It feels weird not to see a ceremony at the end of the final.

Omfg!!! Did you see that defensive lob off of Tsonga's smash on mp!! I think it was bob Bryan who ran back way behind the baseline and hit a lob off this smash with his back to the court and it landed just inches from the baseline. Insane shot!!!

Re: Olympics F: Bryan/Bryan def. Llodra/Tsonga, 6-4, 7-6

That 4-3 game with Mike serving in the first set was HUGE. Saved 4 break points and from there Frenchies were never close to getting another BP. And Match Point was nuts. Bob didn't need to run after that smash since they had 3 more MPs, but he did anyway and they won it after a rally went on and Llodra hit a forehand volley into the net.

Congrats Bryans!

Re: Olympics F: Bryan/Bryan def. Llodra/Tsonga, 6-4, 7-6

Why have they ruined the doubles' final by changing it from BO5 to BO3? I was going to start to watch it more carefully from the 3rd set, the I say Bryans already have a MP in 2nd set.

Anyway, congrats to the Bryans for Olympic Gold and completing Career Golden Slam, and congrats to Llodra/Tsonga for Olympic Silver.

Congrats to the Bryans! More so to Tsonga for winning a medal - another guy long due for special glory!

Better team won, I don´t know if Llodra/Tsonga won a single point in the second set on Bryans´ serve, not many anyway.
