It was expected honestly, I predicted Federer was going to play a nervous as shit match. He needed a gold medal to complete a career golden slam and this was really his last chance to do it. It's hard to imagine him winning it in 4 years at age 34.
Thats why I so wanted him to do it. All his achievements in tennis, he really deserved to get this finally. And yeah it is his last Olympics really, even if he tries in 4 years time, by that point I think its safe to say that he will be past it completely and so this was it. I am just gutted still that he couldn't perform like he does for slams.
On the other hand, Murray appeared unnerved, that was expected as well being that he'll only choke in grand slam finals, and if he's playing any other match he'll be fine. Nonetheless I'm glad as hell Murray won, I gotta say I'm a huge fan of him.
Well I'll be cheering him on for the mixed doubles. I'm not a big Murray fan, doubt I ever will be, but this years Wimbledon and today has really warmed me more to him. Surprised he actually sang the national anthem if I'm honest. Guess thats how emotional he was feeling and in tune with the crowd.
This could wonders to him next year at Wimbledon too because he's finally won something huge there. Even if the event is different, the venue is the same. I think by this time next year he'll have a slam to his name and I wouldn't be surprised if its the Wimbledon title.
