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.

of course murray is saying a gold medal is better than a grand slam because he doesn't have one. he may get one later, but for now that is all he has. but we know better. to prove my point, nicolas massu has gold. outside tennis nobody knows him. marc rosset of switzerland has gold. i'm sure the swiss would take roger's achievements over rosset's. even so roger has gold and silver. sampras has no medals. agassi has gold. nobody thinks agassi is better. he has 8 slams, pete 14. case closed.
