17 days before the start of the Olympics

21.07.2008 | Tennis

Just 17 days to go until the Olympics in Beijing. With the participation of 17 of the top 20 men and 18 of the top 20 women, the 2008 Olympic tennis tournament will certainly be an event not to be missed from 10 to 17 August on the courts of the new Olympic Tennis Centre in Beijing.

 

Roger will lead the strongest field ever to enter the Olympic tennis event since tennis returned as a full medal sport in Seoul in 1988. All five of the top men will compete in Beijing, and seven of the top ten women.

 

Tennis is an Olympic sport since the first modern Olympic Games took place in Athens, Greece in 1896. Tennis was dropped from the Olympic programme after 1924 amid turmoil over such issues as where to draw the line between amateurism and professionalism, and it didn't return as a medal sport until 1988. Today, Olympic competition includes men's and women's singles and men's and women's doubles.

 

The Olympic Green Tennis Court is one of the new venues in Beijing. The flower-shaped Tennis Center is meticulously designed for natural ventilation to ensure the quality of the competitions for athletes and spectators.The venue has a capacity of 17400 seats, including 10000 seats in the main court. This year, the Olympic tennis and Paralympic wheelchair tennis competitions will be held at the Center.

Where is the Toronto news heading ?

Were they expecting him to lose ? Get it together Forum managers.

The match against Simone was very frustrating and annoying. It is so dissapointing to see Federer play so well and then play so bad for several min

***whbarney,

The "God Box" is a wonderful idea. I'm going to make one for my family.

Isn't Rogers mother, Lynette, terrific?

Hey Rogerholics,

Anyone remember the rain delay at Wimbledon? I made a post to make "God Boxes" to help Roger win. I'll explain but first off I used mine tonight. Put a note in during the match but unfortunaely was not to be.

The "God Box" is a p

Roger Darling! I am so sad for you and you must be terribly upset! It was a touch match and you made some amazing shots. but you had a lot of unforced errors! Too many! It's not like you Roger.

Rogerholic friends,

I'm very down now.
I try not to take Roger's losses too personally, but it's difficult.
Roger's unforced errors were glaring... and the way the last 2 sets ended, was very disappointing.
I don't know what happened either.
I thin

Dearest Roger,
I know now you are really upset and me too. It's too hard to accept it. You look not confident and it costs a match. Now let's forget and relax. These important things are still out there. Today Simon do not win, but you lose yourself. We'
