RIO DE JANEIRO -- Andy Murray is making a habit of accomplishing things that hadnt been done in a while. Nike React Cheap Nz .Or ever.Murray became the first tennis player in Olympic history with two singles gold medals, winning his second in a row by wearing down Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina 7-5, 4-6, 6-2, 7-5 at the Rio de Janeiro Games in a back-and-forth 4-hour final Sunday.Anything could have happened, said Murray, who took the last four games after trailing 5-3 in the fourth set.Emotionally, it was tough. Physically, it was hard, he said. So many ups and downs.At the 2012 London Olympics, Murray won a singles gold and mixed doubles silver at the All England Club. That, of course, was also the site of his historic 2013 Wimbledon championship, ending the hosts 77-year wait for a British man to claim the trophy.Murray won Wimbledon again last month, raising his Grand Slam title count to three.On Sunday, the No. 2-seeded Murray stopped the resurgent run of the 141st-ranked del Potro, who knocked off No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the first round after getting stuck in an athletes village elevator for 40 minutes earlier in the day, then beat No. 3 Rafael Nadal in the semifinals. No man ever has defeated the top three seeds on the way to a gold, but 2009 U.S. champion del Potro sure came close before winding up with a silver to go alongside his bronze from 2012.Del Potro had the louder support, and one fan even yelled something as Murray was about to hit a shot while two points from victory. He put the ball in the net and glared in the direction the voice came from. Soon after, a spectator was escorted out.Nadal, the 2008 gold medalist, lost 6-2, 6-7 (1), 6-3 earlier Sunday to Kei Nishikori, whose bronze is Japans first Olympic tennis medal since 1920.The final provided quite a contrast in styles: Murrays terrific returns, impenetrable defense and track-down-every-ball court coverage against the 6-foot-6 del Potros booming serves and furious forehands. In heavy humidity and on a slow hard court, there were plenty of prolonged points. Not all were pretty, though, as they combined for 102 unforced errors, and 85 winners.They almost went to a fifth set, too, because del Potro served for the fourth at 5-4, but was broken there, then again in the final game.Against Andy, del Potro said, you never know if youre going to win your serve.When del Potro dumped a backhand into the net to end the match, the opponents met at the net and hugged.Afterward, both mentioned how tired they were after playing for the fourth consecutive day.Del Potro would have been the lowest-ranked man to be an Olympic tennis gold medalist and this would have been his first title at any tournament since January 2014. A couple of months later, he had the first of three operations on his left wrist that forced him to miss 2+ years worth of Grand Slam tournaments. His first major tournament back was in June at Wimbledon and he still is not completely able to rip two-handed backhands the way he used to, often relying on righty slices.Hed done amazing, really, to get back to playing and competing again at this level after all of the issues he had, Murray said.By the 10th point of Sundays match, a 26-stroke exchange that ended with Murray netting a forehand, del Potro already looked spent. He closed his eyes, rolled back his head, stuck out his tongue and sucked air. By the fourth set, he was leaning on his racket as if it were a cane.Early on, del Potro ended a mesmerizing, 34-stroke point by pounding a forehand winner, then motioned to the crowd for more noise, perhaps hoping to delay things. His supporters responded dutifully, raising a ruckus with their song of Ole, ole, ole, ole! Del-po! Del-po! -- a chorus they repeated as he stood on court after the medal ceremony, wearing an Argentine flag like a cape.During the match, they would bounce in place and shout in Spanish, Whoever isnt jumping is English! (Murray is Scottish, but you get the point.)Murray carried Britains flag during the opening ceremony in Rio, and on Sunday evening, he saw it raised in the stadium while he sang along to God Save the Queen. Before beating Roger Federer in the 2012 Olympic final, Murray had never earned one of his sports most significant titles. Since then, hes won his trio of majors and his pair of golds -- and made a successful comeback from back surgery in September 2013.Ill try and keep going. And who knows about Tokyo? Murray said with a laugh, referring to the host city for the 2020 Games. If Im still playing in four years, when Im 33, I dont imagine Ill be playing at the same level as now.---Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich Nike React Sale Nz . The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months. Nike React Shoes Nz . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. http://www.cheapnikereactnz.com/ .J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. After focusing on a pair of no-cut events with smaller fields, DFS golf returns to a traditional tournament format with a full field and a cut for this weeks Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas.Our experts have put together the players they believe have the skills to succeed and provide big fantasy point totals. This weeks panel is comprised of Jason Sobel, Jonathan Coachman and Bob Harig as well as FantasyGolfInsiders Jeff Bergerson, Zach Turcotte, Taras Pitra and Jason Rouslin.Note: Golfer salaries listed are for DraftKings.Jason Sobel -- Alex Cejka ($8,300)From Ryan Moore to Charley Hoffman to Scott Piercy, there are a handful of Vegas residents in this weeks field, but my pick is the guy who was part of the runner-up logjam at this event last year. Cejka had a decent finish at the CIMB Classic two weeks ago and he should be accustomed to desert golf. On a week when just finishing Low Vegas Resident is an accomplishment, I like Cejka to take it.Bob Harig -- Ryan Moore ($11,000)The Las Vegas native returns home, and if he can get over the jet lag of being in Asia for two weeks, he should be quite comfortable at the Shriners tournament. He is ranked 32nd in the world after his playoff loss at the Tour Championship which led to a strong Ryder Cup performance. He is coming off a tie for 23rd at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China.Jonathan Coachman -- Brooks Koepka ($10,700)This is one of my favorite tournaments of the year. I also think that the bigger names are starting to take the fall series very seriously. These events can set a player up for the rest of the season. For those reasons I am picking Brooks Koepka to win this week. I think he is now motivated after the Ryder Cup to become a perennial top player week in and week out.Taras Pitra -- William McGirt ($8,700)MccGirt has the course history working in his favor this week as hes only missed one cut in five appearances. Nike React Womens Nz. McGirts strengths are primarily from tee to green, which should play well here. My guess is that the general public will be off of him due to his lack of driving distance, so he could be a solid cash game play with GPP upside as well.Jeff Bergerson -- Kevin Streelman ($8,000)I am looking for a guy that has shown a track record of making cuts at TPC Summerlin. Streelman has made six consecutive cuts here and has top 25s in each of his last five. Last week at Sanderson Farms, he turned in a respectable T-18. He is not a guy who will garner much attention, which is another reason I like him this week. At only $8,000, he will allow you flexibility with the rest of your roster.Zach Turcotte -- Nick Watney ($7,500)After missing most of last season due to an injury, Watney returned to the tour this fall to little fanfare. With fantasy golf still in the early phases of growth, missing last season will keep him below the radar until he has a solid result. Watney made the cut in his first event back at the Safeway a few weeks ago and arrives this week at a course where he has tremendous history, making six straight cuts with five finishes in the top 16.Jason Rouslin -- Ben Martin ($7,600)Martin will look to have a soild start to his 2016-2017 season and make it all the way to the Tour Championship after he was knocked out at the BMW last season. He comes off the Sanderson where he placed 18th, and comes back to TPC Sumerlin where he won in 2014. Clearly he loves the course, and the recent form is there, so this means some great value at $7,600. ' ' '
