    This final showed that tennis is badly missing Nadal

    People are finally realizing that Nadal is good and exciting for tennis. I hope Rafa comes back strong and Federer keeps playing for at least a decade.

    The ball was 10 cm in, Wawa still had 1 challenge left but chose not to. I'm still wondering why he didn't challenge that bad call.

    Peter Bodo: Maria Sharapova is not a true Russian

    OK, I'll ask the question straight up: Is anyone else getting a little tired of Maria Sharapova at these Olympic Games? Ordinarily as cool as a Hitchcock blonde (at least when she's not uttering that war cry with which she punctuates every shot, much to the annoyance of pretty much everyone)...

    Murray lost the match at 4-4 (30-40) 2nd set

    If i'm not mistaken Andy Murray had a break point at 4-4 30-40 in the 2nd but hit a back hand sitter. Had he converted it he 'd have been serving for a 2 sets lead. It reminds me of Rafa missing an easy fh at 4-2 (40-30) 5th set at the AO and proceeded to lose the match. Not taking anything way...

    Don't speed up the courts, keep them as they are

    If the courts were to be sped up, this what 'd happen: Player ---- on serve: Boom :15-0 Boom :30-0 Boom :40-0 Boom:game Rinse and repeat. There won't be no rallies (2 or 3 shots at beat), no nice exchanges,nothing. I'd say keep the courts' speed as they are but enforce the timewaisting...
