Re: Courier: Olympics = 5th major!
Not the 5th GS, by any stretch of the imagination. But it's a matter of opinion.
It's special and unique. It's an individual event that greatly represents the success upon the medalists' country. Winning it is one of the hardest things to do in a Tennis players' career due to the 4 years it takes for the next one, no matter how hard trolls try to belittle it because their favourite flopped and a player they despise was victorious.
I personally preferred Murray winning Olympic Gold over Wimbledon last year. Djokovic and Federer will probably never win it for their country, while Andy still has several opportunities to win Wimbledon now that he has already given his country the greatest victory of all.
