    Massu & Puig will spend the rest of their lives explaining how they won Olympic Gold.

    Ranked #14 at the time and the only male player to win both singles and doubles gold in tennis at the same Olympics, I don't think Massu has a lot of explaining to do. Given that his teammate Fernando Gonzales won singles bronze and doubles gold at the same games, maybe there was a bit of Chilean magic in the Athens air.

    As for Puig, I think Muguruzu, Kvitova and Kerber have more explaining to do than she does.

    Because the Olympics are nothing more than a tournament between a 500 Series event and a Masters?

    Massu was part of, by far, the most entertaining tennis match I saw in the two years I went to the U.S. Open (2002 and 2003), the only slam I've ever attended (and for only one day each year). He played Sargis Sargsian and the stands for the outer show court were packed with flag-waving Armenians and Chileans.

    The match went five sets for I believe more than four hours and Sargsian won, but the atmosphere was what made it special. Every point was a party.

    Jim Courier is on the Tennis Channel broadcast throwing shade at the timing of Raonic's coaching changes. "Apparently, it's a bad thing to make the Quarterfinals of a Major." And then said something like "So Fabrice, perhaps if you get to the Round of 16 in Paris, give a bad scouting report if you want to keep the job."

    So, if Milos loses this match, can he fire Fabrice Santoro even though he hasn't really hired him?

    I was there, I think! Sargisian went on to lose to Agassi and I remember watching that on TV and finding out they were unlikely BFFs.

    (It was the 2004 US Open)

    Yeah, I remember finding out Sargis Sargsian (one of the great tennis names) and Agassi are good friends. I think it's because Agassi's dad and Sargis are both Armenian, right?

    I'm enjoying the shade being thrown at Raonic and the many, many coaching changes. ESPN is talking about it too and they had to make it a much smaller font than they typically use in their graphics just to fit all the names on screen.
