Told you so - the Chinese go to the smaller courts to watch their girls defeat a Williams sister, leaving their seats at Center Court empty.

Anyways, as NBC put it - Federer's nightmare continues... I'm really disappointed for the guy.

In the men's single, Chile's Fernando Gonzalez makes it to the singles final! So that will be the third Tennis medal in Chile's history. The other semi-final will be Nadal against Djokovic. In the women's singles, three of the four semi-finalists are Russians, whit China's Na Li attempting to prevent the Russian sweep.for the men's doubles, the Brian brothers will take on Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka, whit Federer in search of his first Olympic medal. In the other semi-final, France's Clement and Llorda will take on the surprising Swedish pair of Simon Aspelin and Thomas Johanson. As for the women's doubles, the only known semi-finalists are Ukrainians Alona Bondarenko and Kateryna Bondarenko.

The fourth ;) Gonzalez and Massu won the gold in doubles last Olympics, while both won medals in singles (bronze and gold).

We are so happy... I was at a disco celebrating Madonna's birthday (lol) and then the travesti that was performing said "Gonzalez won the second set in tiebreak" and everybody started singing and then we went home... it was like 5 am and everybody in downtown were returning home to see the third match. I arrived and they were 3/3 and I was so nervous so I prefered to don't see the match... but I woke up when everybody in the building shouted when Gonzalez won... amazing! Gonzalez loves to play incredible long matches, hahaha...

Nadal defeated Djokovic minutes ago... I prefered Novak :(

I'm not annoyed at Gonzalez for refusing to admit that the ball touched his racket on that point. Blake didn't seem happy with him AT ALL after the match in a press conference.

And I'm really glad to see Federer in an Olympic final, even if its Doubles.

Roger Federer is finally Olympic champion! Federer and Wawrinka win the men's doubles, Simon Aspelin and Thomas Johansson of Sweden get the silver and the Brian brothers of the United States have the bronze.

Nadal certainly is the best sportsman of 2008 - congratulations to him and Spain.

Congratulations to Nadal... he deserved to win.

I prefer not to see the match... usually when I see a match like this, Gonzalez lose... I think I bring him bad luck. Anyway, he lost :( but it was a great accomplishment for Chilean sport :D
