As the commentator who introduced the match on USA network said, Rafael Nadal, no longer a "claycourt specialist" can beat anybody, at any time, on any surface. If he's not careful, the moniker Superman is going to stick.
The Spaniard wins Olympic Gold on his first try. A truly remarkable feat. He has now won four of the last five big events. Tomorrow he will be rewarded with the official No. 1 ranking.
As for the match, there isn't much to say other than Rafa showed out, Fernando Gonzalez did the best he could, but it just wasn't enough to even win a set.
On to the US Open.
