Silver or gold?

15.08.2008 | Tennis

Roger has secured himself and teammate Stanislas Wawrinka an olympic medal! They knocked out the top-seeded American team of Bob and Mike Bryan today:  7-6 (6), 6-4.

 

This means that Roger, after twice not having been able to win a medal in previous Olympics and also failing in Beijing in singles when he lost to Blake Thursday night, finally will get his Olympic medal. The color will be determined in a Saturday final against Simon Aspelin and Thomas Johansson of Sweden, who played the granddaddy of dramatic matches in the semifinals. They beat Arnaud Clement and Michael Llodra of France after 4 hours 46 minutes, 7-6 (6), 4-6, 19-17.

It's GOLD! Congratulations Roger and Stan! Very well done beating all those great doubles teams like Paes and Bhupathi and the Bryan twins.

Now, please stop reading the news articles berating your miserable season -- a semi and 2 finals in the slams
