Roger Federer wins silver for Switzerland at Olympics

Well it wasn't the story book ending every Federer fan would have liked.

Roger simply didn't have enough gas or mental energy today after that marathon 4.30 hour semi with Juan Martin Del Potro on Friday (which btw nice going getting the bronze from Djokovic defeat well deserved).

The semi was a match many won't soon forget, worthy of a medal.

Roger played like a medalist and that's the match I will always think of when I think of the 2012 Olympics (not the final which sadly due to  Fed's exhaustion was very one sided).

The gold may have gone to Andy Murray but a silver is a remarkable achievement nonetheless.  Congrats Swiss Maestro!.

Onward to the U.S. Open (but first hope you get some well deserved rest!).
