GLADIATORIAL

That is the only way to describe the Olympic tennis final! Points won and lost continually by both players.

Andy Murray eventually won and is now double Olympic Champion, the only tennis player to do so and also, he has done it consecutively, a double piece of history.

John Inverdale has been slammed in the press for mentioning this unique win, but he is quite correct. Yes the Williams sisters have won 4 gold medals but only one gold in singles, the rest were in doubles!

  1. I don't watch the Olympics (really) but I have watched the cycling and the first hour of last nights final before I had to go to bed. Hubby came to bed at eleven thirty and told me it was still going on. Its a shame its was delayed due to the medal ceremonies and people missed the opportunity to watch it live. I know my grandson was looking forward to it.
