Roger and Stan out

01.08.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger and Stan were not able to defend their title in the doubles of the Olympics in London. They were defeated by Jonathan Erlich and Andy Ram of Israel 6-1, 6-7(5), 3-6 today.

"I thought we played an excellent first set. Conditions were tough. They were breezy, a lot of shadow on the courts. But that didn't disrupt our great playing," Roger said. "It was a pity we couldn't create a few more, maybe, opportunities throughout the second set. But obviously they found a bit of a way to get back into the match. They definitely played better once sort of the shadow went, all the flags, all the spectator shadows were gone. It was more clean tennis."

Roger and Stan had a brilliant start, breaking their opponents three times in the opening set. But things suddenly turned in the tie-break of the second set, which Erlich/Ram finally took 7-5. Our Swiss team was broken once in the deciding set - enough for the Israelis to hold and thus secure their victory.

Dear Roger and Stan
I'm sorry that you lost, because you played well! I'm not a tennis expert, but think that you both lost some concentration in tthe second set and it was enough for the so called double specialists!!
Dear Roger
I pray God to give you strength and selfconfidence today in your match vs Isner! I'm sure you can wein this match!
Wish you all the best and good luck dearest Roger!
Go, Roger, goooooooooooooo!
Love, Mimi

You guys played great. Don't worry about this. This happens, besides the conditions were really tough.

You have already your doubles gold medal and that is your forever. No one can take that away from you. You'll try to get another one in Rio.

All the best and enjoy the Olympics.

Dear Rogerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,

It's OK, but when you play SINGLES, please use your brain & keep calm, just the way you did during Wimbledon. You need to execute your shots perfectly, or else........
