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.

***Souji5,

My mom told me a few years ago something about the media that has always rang true. She said, "The media is quick to build someone up and even quicker to tear them down." Therefore, I don't pay them any mind.

We all know how great Rog

Hi Roger's fans:
I remember that there was a big acne on his right cheek back in March, so when I saw there is a dark scar at same location (if I remember correctly) I was so surprised. It usually takes a week to heal in normal healthy person. If that in

***Sheytoon25,

I don't think this is current video. There were no tiebreaks in this match and Roger won the 1st set in 26 minutes or something like that.

Has anyone found the interviews posted on the Rogers Cup site?

Good night, all!

Roger :
Looks like 2008 is really not good year for you, it is so unfortunate. It is very important for you to get confidence back. Anyway, I will always support you. There are some bad calls in the game, and you should not be irritated by that, please
