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.

6:2,6:2,6:2 for Murray. That is the reality. He doesn't have the strenght and he lost the first set. It is over. I don't believe that this time he can turn things around.

No, it's not the same. 2-5 for Roger means Roger is ahead.
