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.

Roger,

This gold medal is going to mean more to you years from now,
when you reflect back because you did it "with" sombody else, "for" somebody else, and "shared" the glory with your team and your country

Some may have preferred you win the singl
