While Andy Murray and Roger Federer duel for the gold medal, Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro won the bronze medal over Serbia's Novak Djokovic.
Del Potro needed less than two hours to dispatch Djokovic, winning 7-5, 6-4. He gave his country their first medal of the 2012 Summer Olympics.
In the first set, the two held serve until the 11th game, when Del Potro took a 6-5 advantage, then held serve in the 12th game to win the set. In the second set, Del Potro broke Djokovic's serve twice to secure the medal.
Djokovic never broke del Potro's serve on six chances.
Djokovic won the bronze in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, while this is the first Olympic appearance and medal for the 23-year old del Potro.
