Olympics R1: Goerges/Groenefeld (GER) def. Baltacha/Keothawong (GBR) 6:3 6:1

Again Germany against Great Britain in the women´s doubles.
This time no drama, no discussions and obviously not much interest in this match.
Great match from Julia and Anna-Lena. They are clearly the more experienced, better attuned team compared to Kerber/Lisicki.
Next match will be tough against Makarova/Vesnina. Good luck.

I'd love to see Anna winning a medal.

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Impressive stuff from Julia and Anna-Lena, though Elena and Anne didn't make much of an impact. I felt sorry for Elena, crying at the end and still sitting down after her opponents had left the court. Not sure if it was because she lost at her home Olympics or because this could be her final time at Wimbledon, probably a combination of the two. Anyway, I'm glad with the result, hope Julia and Anna-Lena can do well.

Well done, Julia/Anna-Lena !

Impressive performance. Now good luck vs Makarova/Vesnina

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck
