The hard truth is that the audience probably prefer Federer, Murray, Tsonga over Djokovic.

Has nothing to do with his status, he is the best player in the world currently, but with his "entertainment value" in the UK.
sorry Buz, but I don't think so. are you kidding me? plus what the hell did Tsonga win to deserve to be on CC? yeah, the answer is nothing.

With rain and cool temps I don't suspect we'll see record breaking performances on the track.

This I'd bizzare. Wieber is doing her floor routine and you can't hear the music at all because the fans are screaming the whole time about other events.

The women's gymnasts are just awful. Every freaking country is slipping, bumbling, or falling.

I've never watched this event before but white water rapids in London looks ridiculous.

Yes, boys, it's all about looks. Wimbledon looks ugly as sin BTW. Is this 1984? These colors should have been retired in LA.

let's share some of our memorable olympic moments.......i have a couple off the top of my head.......both from atlanta olympics in 1996 when i first really paid attention to olympics as a kid.......

1. leander paes somehow managing to win the bronze medal andcrying on the podium, the only medal for the country.......

2. a very short weight lifter standing less than 5 feet, halil mutlu of turkey winning a gold medal........he was the shortest at that competition so i remembered him........he went onto take golds in sydney and athens too........one of the only four weight lifters ever to win a gold at 3 separate editions........   
Marian Vajda to Novak Djokovic, "I saw you beat that man like I never saw no man get beat before, and the man KEPT COMING AFTER YOU! Now we don't need no man like that in our lives."

i demand french open to be renamed RAFAEL GARROS

Still too early to say who's the star yet. There is a lot still to take place!

well, Herc I like his chances but I don't know how good his form is, as I wasn't able to see his match with Fongini. I know that the Olympics are very important to him, so I assume he will give his best. Roddick might test him a bit. we'll see tomorrow.
