Nadal wins Gold
I thought Blake should have been in the final, but that’s another discussion for another time. Probably would not have made any difference in the outcome. Nadal continues a streak that I can only compare to what Tiger achieved in winning four consecutive majors (although not in the same calendar year). Phelps’ performance during the Olympics has been nothing short of astonishing, but Nadal’s accomplishment over a longer period of time against a competitive field, across multiple surfaces almost defies comparison.
One wonders if there will be any drama at all this year during the US Open or will it be just another notch in Nadal’s belt? And, what’s the deal with biting each medal or trophy?
