Of course he feels this way even though he's got a real GS. He got the ONLY medal for Argentina. So yeah, it's a big deal for his country. It's like when Novak won the medal at Beijing. Not many are winning medals for Serbia.
Britain gets tons of medals in Olympics.
England hasn't got a gold medal in tennis in over a century- still pretty special

Tearkovic disagrees.

I don't know is there anything positive that I can say. I can only say that I am disappointed. I don't know if I should call it bad luck or to say that simply it was not meant to be and that he was better. I have to congratulate to my opponent, he played great. Yes there were chances for the match to go my way, can't deny that. But it is what it is.

I like Novak but if he can't do it at USO I would love Delpo to win it.

If I have to put my money on who is going to win the next Golden Slam... that's Djoko.

For a moment, I though the poster meant all slams and olympic gold in the same year. My mistake. For the goldem slam, he only needs Rolan Garros. It's still not happening, but the post is not as absurd as I first thought.
