Prior to the Olympic Games there were questions on whether Tennis belonged at the event with a high number of high profile withdrawals for a various number of reasons but oh my didn’t it prove itself!
No prize money or points on offer this year but go and ask Del Potro, Puig, Murray, Nadal, Kerber and every other player if that mattered to them?
Time and time again throughout the tournament tennis has just produced these wow moments which will just be remembered forever and have made players heroes for their country.
There isn’t a feeling like it, you just have to watch a match to see the emotional rollercoaster the players go through. This means so much to everyone who has taken part in the Olympics there’s a chance to win a gold medal which is a once in a lifetime moment and even if you miss out on gold winning silver or bronze isn’t a bad achievement either!
The intensity has been incredible throughout the tournament so far and with the crowd behind it and getting involved just makes it extra special.
This is the world’s biggest individual sport. Played week in week out all over the world and you are always guaranteed those wow moments, upsets and at the end of the day tears!
