Olympic 2012 Mixed Doubles Final: Murray/Robson v Azarenka/Miryni

Quote

What an experience for Laura - Andy was so 'brotherly' to her - for her experience and a silver medal - for him the whole day has been the greatest experience. For once it was AM and not RF who won and, like many MW posters, I shed a few tears 'cos it is so special. Andy will go on to win a GS now if not more than one - he took his time but he came of age - the maturity is there now and will stand him in good stead for the future.

Agreed as well.  Think Andy's emotions are all over the place but he has nothing to be ashamed of here.

Andy's really good with her.  Had Laura been a bit more experienced player GB probably would have won, but winning silver must be a great boost.  Andy won the singles and that was the important thing.  Think the poor man's emotions are shot to pieces.

I'm glad that the situation wasn't reversed at least and he won silver in singles and gold in mixed dubs.

The singles gold medal is infinitely sweeter.

Think they're waiting for bronze play off, but may be wrong.

I don't think the BBC showed it, or if they did I missed it.

Forgot about that too.  Why on earth wasn't it scheduled for No.1 court, like the other bronze play-offs?  A bit much to keep them hanging around, and I'm sure all Andy wants now is to get home as quickly as possible.

Laura did very well, but obviously not up to Murray's standard.  I think the result was fair.  It was amusing that even with the proper colour medal held tight in his little paw, he still didn't like losing this match. Equally he will recognise that he couldn't do it all, and Laura lost it at a couple of crucial points.  The BBC has said our lad is off to the next one. Maybe he is going to dodge the press, after all he has got what he came from....!!! Now he will be after his next GS. If he can beat NJ + Fed in the Olympics - he now knows there is absolutely no reason he can't do it in the slam.  I will be at the post office tomorrow to get my Murray stamp.

Yes what a waste of time those mixed doubles turned out to be, eh?  Wink

Andy has made a huge leap today but so has Laura in her own way. What a boost for her fledgling career!  yay

It was scheduled for no 1 court they have used the excuse of the rain delay earlier but that was only an hour.  Andy will have to wait for probably a couple of hours now. 

Anyone know if he is playing next week, cant imagine he will do well must be physically and mentally drained (or is that just Smugfed)
