Roger and Stan move on

11.08.2008 | Tennis

Shortly after his successful first round into the Olympic singles tennis tournament Roger also made a good start into the doubles together with Stanislas Wawrinka. They won in straight sets 7-5, 6-1.


Roger managed to lead the team very well, helping Stan over some difficulties during the starting phase. As both players found their rhythm in the second set Simone Bolelli and Andreas Seppi were not able to keep up. Roger leaped to whack an overhead slam on match point, sealing the victory over the Italians after 71 minutes.


Next up are the two top-players Dimitri Tursunow and Michail Youzhny who defeated Fernando Gonzalez/Nicolas Massu, the Olympic champions of Athens.

Dear eeee

It may be different from outside the UK but it shouldn't be. When you get into the BBC Sport site, stay on the main page which says Live - Olympics. Don't click on the tennis on the left but look to the right and you'll see a red box with Liv

Thanks for your help. Only Justin TV seems to work for. The quality is bad but it is better than nothing. Thanks again.
