In the “grand scheme of things” nothing in tennis is important.

Hum...

Rafa was injured: go to excuse #1 for Rafatards

Nole did not really care: go to excuse #1 for Noletards to explain losses from the now deceased Nole 2.0.

How do you spell projection again?

What a troll you have become Matt .. still love you

That being said you should be more worried about Djokovic, 2011 Wimbledon Champion losing twice and getting no medals to Murray and Del Potro..

Roger's loss is not the Olympic's loss.

The fact that Roger fought so hard to get to the final, and was very emotional about only getting silver, is the Olympic's gain.

EDIT: Just to clarify, the Olympic event gains from Roger and everyone else taking it seriously.

Olympics are great but the truth is there is nothing they can do to make it more important than it is now. It will never be as big of a deal as the majors.

Also I think in some ways Murray winning was better for tennis in general and the Olympics than Federer winning. Federer didn't really need the gold metal to prove anything, Murray did. He needed this to perhaps help him get over the hump at the majors and it was in London at Wimbledon. If he goes on to finally win Wimbledon in the next two years we will look back on this as a huge step toward that.

I think there are a couple of facts that make Olympic tennis a bit of a joke:
1. Federer has won Gold in the Doubles, but has never won a Doubles Grand Slam.
2. Murray (sure, he still can win a Grand Slam), and many other Olympic Singles Gold medallists has won Gold in the Singles, but has never won a Singles Grand Slam.

Surely that sums up the lack of prestige of Olympic tennis Gold in pure tennis terms? Perhaps in another 50-100 years, when there is more history created in tennis, the lack of the Gold medal in a tennis player's resume will be more significant. However, in most of our lifetimes', I don't see the Olympic tennis Gold medal as a significant title for a specific player, in pure tennis terms. Sure, it is a significant achievement for the player AND their country. But it doesn't make them a standout tennis player. Not right now anyway.

peeps 8m americans watched serena win gold - i'm guessing andy trippled that number in GB...this is all good for our sport.

read/watch what fed says after his loss - you can tell he cares and is so proud with his silver. look at both delpo and fed after that semi. damn.

none of that changes the fact that olympics will never be the pinnacle of achievement for tennis players. grass was fun while it lasted. let's just move on to USO, shall we?

Add to that - I don't think Federer has even made the quarter-finals of a Doubles Grand Slam. In fact, when was the last time he actually played doubles in a Grand Slam or in a non-Davis cup tournament? He managed to win the doubles Gold (which some seem to think is at least nearly as important as a Grand Slam), and yet rarely plays doubles?

After Li Na had won Chinese first-ever Grand Slam Women's Singles title in French Open 2011, Li Yong Bo (Chinese badminton team head coach) said that French Open is JUST a ordinary tournament, it is NOT World Championship. Li Na MUST prove herself by winning Olympic Games.
