Highlights of Andy Murray v Novak Djokovic from in the final of the Madrid Open He is hitting the ball beautifully and, for me, the most outstanding improvement in his game is the serve.That serve was consistently a lot bigger than Novaks out there today in terms of its speed, but the second serve was far less attackable, its got a lot more bite on it, its kicking up more and its coming through the court as well. There are a lot of positives for him. Also See: Novak masters Murray in Madrid Murray v Djokovic: The rivalry Dante Pettis Jersey .

Despite being loaded with superstar junior talents such as Eric Lindros, Paul Kariya, Scott Niedermayer and Trevor Kidd, the Canadians started slowly and then completely crashed and burned. After barely beating the two worst teams in the tournament, Germany and Switzerland, the Canadians only managed draws against Sweden and Finland. Still in the hunt, the Canadians dropped a 5-3 shocker to the United States, setting up the final fall. Disappointment turned to disgrace when the Canadians finished with lopsided losses to the Czechs and the Commonwealth of Independent States, formerly known as the Soviet Union. As the Canadian Hockey Association was left to clean up the damage, the CIS walked away with the gold medal thanks to a star-studded lineup that included Alexei Kovalev, Alexei Yashin, Sandis Ozolinsh, Nikolai Khabibulin and many other future NHLers. Sweden won the silver medal with Michael Nylander counting 17 points. A couple of youngsters turned heads, as Markus Naslund scored eight goals and Peter Forsberg had 11 points. The United States won the bronze medal, with Peter and Chris Ferraro leading the team in scoring. But their success was mostly due to Mike Dunham, who was named the tournaments top goaltender.
