Lot Essay

Following on from his success in the 2012 Wimbledon final, Roger would once again return to his favourite surface at the All England Lawn Tennis Club for the London Olympics. Looking to add a singles gold medal to the gold he won in the 2008 Beijing Olympics doubles tournament, Roger defeated Falla, Benneteau, Istomin and Isner on the way to an epic semi-final against Juan Martin del Potro. The match was locked at 1-1 in sets with Del Potro serving first in the final set. Roger eventually prevailed 19-17 in a match which lasted four hours and 26 minutes, making it the longest best of three set contest in Open Era history. In the final, Andy Murray would avenge his defeat in the Wimbledon final a month earlier, leaving Roger with a silver medal to add to his gold from four years prior.
