Let the Games begin!

07.08.2008 | Tennis

Roger will play Russia's Dmitry Tursunov (ATP 35) in the first round of the Olympic tennis tournament which starts on Sunday. "He's a dangerous player," our star said of Tursunov. "He hits a very hard ball. He serves well. I've known him since juniors. We go way back. He's a good player."

 

Roger will either meet Huyng Taik Lee (ATP 96) or unknown Rafael Arevalo from Salvador in the second round. Then he could play Tomas Berdych, the man who beat him in the third round in Athens four years ago. After that a match against James Blake or Gilles Simon - against whom Roger lost in Toronto - would be likely.

 

In the doubles tournament, Roger and Stanislas Wawrinka will open against the Italian duo Simone Bolelli/Andreas Seppi. They will face the winner of the clash between Marin Cilic/Ivan Ljubicic and Fernando Gonzalez/Nicolas Massu should the they make it through.

 

"I have got enough opportunities to find back to my old strength during the Olympics and the US Open. I really hope to be able to make my dream of an Olympic gold medal become true", our champ said before his participation at his third Olympic Games.

Roger Fans,

I'm confused about the timing of Roger's match vs. Tursunov, so here's a link to the schedule. It looks like Roger v. Tursunov is scheduled for 7 pm, or 1900, Sunday (or 7 a.m. EST Sunday--that would be 12 noon in UK). Here's the link:

Dear Roger,

Hope you had a lovely birthday. Saw the TV coverage of the opening ceremony and had to wait so long for the Swiss team to come into the arena. It was well worth the wait when your team finally appeared with you leading them out. You look
