it's a pity nole couldn't take it but he really wasn't in the best position to play a marathon. he should have won the first set.
murray finally wins a slam. perhaps his gold medal finally made him mentally tougher. to be fair, though, he really would have been a multiple slam winner if it were not for the big 3 who will go down in history as all time greats. now it finally makes perfect sense to talk about the big four of men's tennis.
