Rafael Nadal with Marc Lopez won Gold medal in men’s doubles. They defeated the Romanian team of Mergea/Tecau in three sets, 2/6 3/6 6/4
Rafa: "It was an amazing experience, especially doing that with one of my best friends, with Marc, it's something unforgettable for me, for both of us, I think".
"Win a gold medal today after two months and a half with no practice, with no preparation at all, just working on the gym, is something that is a dream, no?
"The moment was unbelievable, and we had fun. We fight hard. The only thing that we can say is that we are very, very happy."
The win marks Nadal’s second Olympic gold medal, following a singles victory at the Beijing 2008 Games. In that match, the World No. 5 defeated Chile’s Fernando Gonzalez. (via ITF)
