I just witness some of the best tennis today
rafael nadal vs del potro

del potro just is resilient he will make sure that he will be right there with you when you take the lead and then he just tires you out and defeats you, I was rooting for nadal, nadal almost got it, it went straight to tie break 1 a piece and both had 6, del potro thought he had it won when it was 6,4 to him but nadal just came back but that lasted short.

then the tennis after womens final, wow another amazing match.

damn nice. i missed that match. i think maybe because I was watching basketball.

i'd like to see Del Potro get the gold.. would love to see him back in the mix with the top guys at every major. he somewhat disappeared because of injuries.

ya, sick.

i was just coming on to post about that and:

usain bolt: didn't look great in his start, but man o man did he look good towards the end.. beastmode.

mo farah: 10k gold.. not sure why these guys are holding back so much though man.. push the damn pace. Mo Farah fell and still had no problems.. seemed like an easy win for him. Glad he won but, not sure what his competition is thinking tbh.

hell ya.

Gatlin is "old" too.. pretty crazy. Phelps doesn't seem like he's getting worse with age either.. I bet he could destroy another olympics. I imagine he'll change his mind in the year leading up to 2020.

usa is my country but i'm still hoping Bolt wins.. :) more jewelry for the GOAT.

watching usa vs france basketball. first USA game i've been able to watch. so far, good game.

can't believe durant is on the warriors.. he's been "the guy" so far in this game.

usa only won by 3.. 2nd game in a row.

they definitely look vulnerable .. makes things more interesting that's for sure.

Bolt was insanely impressive. He switched off at around 70m and glided through for........a 9.86. LOL! Should be a great final still but hard to see the field challenging him.

What's happened to Trayvon Bromell? Barely squeaked through to the final. Was expecting him to be right up there with Bolt and De Grasse.

ya i dno, he's (bromell) definitely a 9.8x guy on his BEST sprint. what did he get in that semi? i didn't see his time. glad he got into the final though.

bolt is a 9.8x guy @ ~70%..  :wowthatwasnutswtf: :ibrunning:
