The fact is there is a LOT of luck involved with the Olympics - once every 4 years, best of 3 till the final - but over 4 outings you'd think it would be enough for Fed. He didn't win it. Why not just accept that this is something that Nadal has that is better than Federer rather than clinging to that doubles gold for dear life?
The first paragraph does not bring any value or relevance to your argument. As for the second one, it is a fact that both Murray and Federer have an extra silver to go with their gold. People have to just accept those facts.
