Roger bounces back in doubles

15.08.2008 | Tennis

Roger and Stanislas Wawrinka have beaten Indian rivals Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes 6-2, 6-4 to advance to the Olympic semifinals.

 

The fourth seeds cannot rest on their laurels for long as they will face the world No.1 doubles pair, American twins Bob and Mike Bryan, later on Friday. The winners of that match will be guaranteed at least silver. If they lose, they could still return home with bronze if they beat the other losing semifinalists. Although the Bryans are clear favourites, Roger and Stan have both beaten the Americans – although the Swiss were playing with different partners at the time.

 

Paes was dazzled by Roger's artistry, telling reporters: "Federer is the best player in the world. Unfortunately we got stuck with him playing unbelievably well. I am still trying to figure out what we could possibly have done."

 

Go for Gold, Team "Fedrinka"!
