Olympic dream is over

14.08.2008 | Tennis

Roger's bid for his first Olympic singles medal ended today when he lost to James Blake of the United States. Our star was eliminated in the quarter-finals 4-6, 6-7(2).

 

The match began after a rain delay of 3 hours, 35 minutes, and Roger seemed off his game from the start. His forehand was unreliable and he repeatedly struggled to hold serve. Blake earned the first break in the final game of the opening set. On set point, Roger left his feet for a spectacular backhand save that extended the rally, but with his next shot he floated an easy backhand into the net. His shoulders sagging, he was broken again two games later and fell behind 3-0 in the second set. Our champion finally showed life by breaking back in the fifth game and holding the rest of the way to reach 6-all. But Blake played a flawless tiebreaker, while Roger made two unforced errors and popped up a volley.

 

Roger is seeking his first Olympic medal after losing in the singles semi-finals in Sydney and in the second round in Athens. He was scheduled to play a quarter-final doubles match later today with Stan.

You are still the best ever. No one can equal the grace and elegance and pure class you show on the court. Keep well and don't let pressure get to you. Take it easy and know you are the best. Maybe you are pushing yourself too hard. Take some time fo

Hi Roger! I'm so sorry for your loss in Beijing...but I really think that playing in that conditions was impossible...it wasn't your fault! You were playing great, but you certainly were not concentrated enough...it was a terrible behaviour of the organiz
