Can we please just face the fact that a gold medal is not as important to tennis as it is to say, gymnastics or running? Slams are the goal for any tennis player, and Roger has 17 of those.

I'm not even a Federer fan at all and even then I can understand why a gold medal is not the greatest achievement for the tennis world.

Ah but as the point of saying someone has the midas touch is that everything turns to gold I'm just pointing out that it didn't in the Olympics t-g

Smugfed has not won a singles gold medal at the olympics and never will. I am sure it will stick in his craw that he did not. It may seem unimportant to some but for him it was clearly important. I am so glad Andy beat him and beat him well in straight sets. He could not hide his disappointment so it was clear that he wanted to win. I hope he will be beaten soon again or we will or we will have to put up with his arrogant behaviour.

Simon Reed had already predicated this just last year and I agreed with him right away. His prediction was, the fight between Nole and Nadal would eventually allow both Federer and Andy to win most titles this year. I am not sure how the rest of the year will pan out at this point, but he's at least right about Federer. Nadal seems unhealthy and Nole looks totally spent and Andy is still in quest for his first GS title and probably still a bit overwhelmed/exhausted after his Olympics win, something I don't think Reed, took into account when he made the predictions. In any case, I don't think his predictions are generally true but in this case, he's just dead on. And it’s simply because his predictions were based what was going around at that time.

Federer is definitely the luckiest player but luck favours those who see an opportunity and are prepared for it, and Federer is that guy. While he is a great player no doubt, he’s also the most opportunist player tennis history has ever produced.

Get your cash on a US Open win. It's inevitable now.
