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.

El partido de dobles me entristecio todo el día, que lástima que se perdió. Ahora ROGER a ganarle a ISNER, concéntrate por favor desde el inicio, derrótalo de forma total.

STAN, espero que te encuentres bien, hiciste un buen trabajo. Deberían jugar nuevamente juntos en "Dobles" en el ATP, Uds. son un EQUIPO. Tendrían grandes oportunidades de obtener varios campeonatos. Hagan la prueba. Seria algo magnifico que ganaran un Gran Slam o un MASTER 1000 en DOBLES, no creen?.

I agree with JOS. Doubles is a totally different animal. Oh well. Fun to watch though.

Don't worry. Maybe blessing in disguise.
Allows you to conserve energy, and focus on the more important race.

You've won the doubles once already. Erlich and Ram play together all the time. It's not a fair comparison at all.

I'm sorry that you and Stan lost your double match but don't be so disappointed, ok? Schedule with all these rain, didn't help as well.
You have much tougher job to do in your single quarter match. I will try to watch your match and will definitely praying for your victory. Take care of yourself becoz you looks tired.
