Tennis fans, come here and say something about the 2004 Olympics.

Say something... anything deep in your heart: your joy, disappointment, good days, bad days, ...

and I can say that these Olympics in which I was looking so forward to for motnhs has been a complete disappointment, mainly due to the fact that all the Irish team seem to be jinxed (either due to car crashes,drug scandals or niggling injuries) before they even compete in any of the events. of course today just topped it all off with Venus and Chanda losing so easily

I was disappointed when Marcos Baghdatis (our only Cypriot player) lost to Keifer but that fact that a player ranked 279 in the world is just 19 years old can give a player ranked 14th and is in great form this summer such a hard time is kinda good.....I was disappointed that Eleni after getting back in the match with Myskina at 5/4 and 0/30 then duce to loose in 2 sets.....I am so happy that french tennis players are doing well because they are my favourites and I hope they both win medals because they both deserve it....I was very upset that Andy lost today because I admire the fighting spirit and spontenousity in this player and I love his passion for tennis.....although I'm not a Justine fan but it is always good to see a top player back to form.....

I'm glad the US women hold the record now in the 800 relay.

I am happy for the US team, won the most medals so far and have 8 gold medals and counting!! Can't wait for track and field, that's where the medals will start to stack up on the US side.

Anyway I'm very disappointed for tennis, all my faves were kicked off. Huge disappointment, Dementieva, Venus, Roddick, Fererro, Federer, etc. It's such a huge loss that none of these top players are still in.

But I wish to all those players left luck.

Go Team USA! Still counting on the US team left in Tennis, Fish, Bryan bros, etc good luck! We're counting on you to bring a medal home! Go Team USA!

In the end it is still the same old me.
