Rafael Nadal once again showed that he is a true champion with a big heart as he wished Andy Murray soon after the Brit replaced him as the new Olympics tennis champion.

Murray defeated 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer of Switzerland to win Gold Medal in the singles category at the London Olympics.

Nadal posted on his facebook and twitter accounts after few hours of Murray’s triumph, “Congratulations to Andy, Roger and John Martin. Especially to Andy, I imagine the joy of doing at home.”

Murray, Federer and Argentina’s Juan Martin Del Potro captured Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal respectively. Del Potro upset world number two Novak Djokovic in the Bronze Medal match.

Nadal could not participate at the London Olympics due to his niggling knee injury. Just few days before the start of the biggest sports event of the world, the Spaniard announced that he would not be able to take part in the London Games as his injury did not heal in time.

The world number three was supposed to defend his Olympics title that he won in Beijing four years ago. He was also chosen to be Spain’s flag bearer at the opening ceremony.

Nadal was extremely disappointment on being missing London Olympics. He said in a statement that it was one of the toughest decisions of his life to withdraw from London Olympics.

The Spanish star has also pulled out of Roger Masters but he is hopeful of getting fit before the US Open. With this win, Murray has also shortened the gap in ranking points between him and Nadal.

Murray took revenge from Federer of his loss at the hands of Swiss Maestro in the Wimbledon final at the same venue four weeks back.
