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.

Glad you made it to the final and wish you full recovery for the rest of the season. The year end no.1 ranking is hopefully yours as well as the minor task of another USO and ATP World Tour final title. No pressure, just pleasure.

Happy Birthday, Roger!
And congratulations on your Olympic medal - it's a silver officially but you've definitely got a HEART OF GOLD when it comes to being an ambassador for the sport and your respect for your opponent and the Olympic Hosts. The SF with Delpo definitely showed you still have the grit and stamina, but nobody could have expected you to last the best of 5 final without doing further physical damage. Andy had everything going for him so he took it without hesitation.

Roger! Happy birthday to you! Don't be upset over the Olympics! You just need a break to relax, take your time and enjoy happy moments of your life with your family. I wish you to establish the Academy by your name to become the world's best one! But if you do it, please don't forget about me, as I would love to come to see you in person and have a game with you!:) Best-best-best wishes! Kodomo.
