Olympic silver or gold!

03.08.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 2

Roger made his dream for an Olympic medal come true today, winning the longest tennis singles match in Olympic history! He defeated Juan Del Potro 3-6, 7-6, 19-17 after four hours and 26 minutes of play.

Roger and Del Potro showed an incredibly dramatic semi-final today, with Del Potro scoring the a break in the first set to give him the advantage he needed. Roger won the tie-break of the second set, and then things really went wild. Del Potro missed a shot and gave our champ his first service break of the afternoon, after over three hours of play, and the chance to serve for the match at 10-9. But the Argentinian broke back - at love - to stay in the match. Only 16 (!) games later did Roger then earn himself the second chance to close out the match.

Roger will next face the winner of the other semifinal between Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic in the quest for an Olympic gold medal on Sunday.

Roger surely doesn't need to be told how to deal with a defeat! He is the best in the world at that as well as at playing tennis, as his post-final interviews and the medal ceremony showed. I think he will want to consolidate his rightful position as World No 1 and, if he remains fit, he will not let it slip. Go Roger, now and for ever!

Roger: Yesterdays defeat was though no doubt, it was clear that physically you were beaten if not there is no way you loose in straight sets in your natural enviroment, now its time to take in what is good about the defeat, use the humbling nature of this defeaat an go for fifth western and southern financial open in order to tie Rafa in Masters 1000 titles and then US, China and the rest, you should be able to go undefeated from now on, best of lucks, always cheering.
