Silver for Roger

05.08.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 3

Roger won his first Olympic medal today after losing against Andy Murray 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 in the tennis final at Wimbledon.

Roger started well, earining a break-point in the opening game, but Murray rallied to hold. And then, from 2-2  the match suddenly started slipping away for Roger as he lost every game until 0-5 in the second set. Roger tried to hang in there and did have his chances to break, including in the third game of the second set where he could not convert six break points but Murray finally also took that game. Murray eventually went on to end the match with three aces in series.

The silver medal is a special one for Roger, despite the defeat, it is the first Olympic one for Roger in the four Olympic Games he has participated in so far.

Dear Rog, I hope you wd take pride in McEnroe's comment even as he was rooting for Andy in the Final. He said he under-estimated how fit you were in your semi-final, & how well you played at the end of the very long match,ie., even w/ his expert trained eyes, you're outperforming yourself, improving & exceeding expectations. Figuring out the final is: understanding yourself, improving in managing your response to stress, cutting down on anxiety & transforming that energy into toughness & stamina

Hello Roger,

What a year! Return to Number 1, winner of Wimbledon, and now the silver which contributes to your points in retaining your Number 1 ranking.

Glad you are taking a well deserved respite.
