    Surely all tennis is best of 3 apart from men's Grand Slam matches

    Would be awesome if Andy won Gold. Yes it is not the intensity of a slam, but Fed-Ex and Novak want it just as much

    Silver at least for Murray now. Here's hoping he beats Fed and wins gold

    Thanks

    Ironically I'm in Wimbledon of all places but looks like travelling out of London means I'll miss the mens! :(

    Definitely rooting for AM today. It's only fair. I was rooting for RF during the Wimbledon final :D

    Sounds good, doesn't it. He's played out of his socks throughout the tournament. He really really wanted it, for GB and himself.

    Perhaps now the English press will get off his back for a while.

    I'm really enjoying these games. Well done to all Team GB.

    Congratulations to Andy, such deserving of this after so much disapointment in the past. Really chuffed for him. :thumbsup:

    This singles title is not something to be overlooked. Even the greatest of them all doesn't have this one in his trophy cabinet, and today Murray really took his game apart.

    So I beleive I'm right in saying that only Andre Agassi & Rafa Nadal are the only two players who have achieved the Grand Slam & won the Olympic title in their careers. The Full House :smashin:

    I don't think many would have bet on Murray getting a Gold and a Silver. Even fewer would have bet on Robson winning a medal. So very well done.

    Brought a tear to my eye when the young lad asked Murray for a Hug.
