You learn quickly, young Skywalker.

Anyone know who British (Aussie?) announcer dude is? I'd love for Henman to go into commentating.

Where are you watching it? Henman commentates for BBC during Wimbledon. I find his voice a bit.... tinny.

at the risk of upsetting dear fergus, does anyone else get a creepy vibe from the bryans?

I've been giving the Bryan's the side eye for awhile now. I didn't even know their Dad wrote a book about raising children to be champions until recently, which made me feel a bit sorry for them.

Ok, I LOVED that announcer dude was referring to them as "Bob & Mike Brady". :rofl:

Overjoyed, tanked, and ready to spend my better-half's inheritance on accessories! :40beers: I'm so giddy, we might even ogle straight boys in the park just for sport!

France hasn't won an Olympic Men's Doubles Tennis medal since 1924, so WELL DONE to them for silver & bronze. :)

I'm glad France got 2 medals here, they have great depth in the men's :)
Now Mike has to hussle back on court to play the Mixed SF!

Just getting caught up, so excited for Serena! Olympic Champ! Career Golden Slam! :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2: She was so cute at the end with that interview.

I am a bit shocked at the utter dominance she displayed at these games. I know people were predicting her to win, but to win 6-0, 6-1 against Sharapova is just insane.

Congrats to the Bryan brothers as well, that's really great especially after Beijing.

Now on to Murray/Federrer :eek:

I love watching the Bryan brothers when they are that in synch on the court which is much of the time. And I'm psyched for Serena too. Now I would love, love, love to see Murray win his match tomorrow.

Federer has to win tomorrow! He has to! :drama:

Robson/Murray will face Azarenka/Mirnyi in the mixed final. The home team is a sweet story and all....but I hope Vika/Max win! And while I like Robson, I cannot bring myself to root for Murray :P

YAY Serena! YAY Bryan Brothers!

I'll be rooting for Fed tomorrow, but won't complain (much) if Murray grabs gold for GB ;)

Wow--I didn't know Murray made two finals. I like Roger and now I know if he wins that all is not lost for Andy. But seeing a guy win in his nation for his nation is compelling.
