Andy showed great mental strength in the USO final by stopping Novak's come back. But his demolishing of Roger in the Gold Medal match wasn't really one which required mental strength. Andy was in dominating form and Roger was lackluster, he didn't need to be particularly strong to win that day. I think the way he fought during some of those long games versus Roger in the Wimbledon final were far more impressive. That 20 minute game really showed what he was made of in my opinion.
