^hmm...I personally thought the result was "never in doubt".

I though it was very evenly balanced and could have gone either way in the 5th. As it was Mardy put in some great first serves and congrats to him on his win.


I'm enjoying Lukas Rosol rather alot - enough to actually withstand a Nadal match :eek:

Nadal is definetly out of sorts - he was lucky to win the tie-break - Rosol is certainly going for his shots - and making them. Let's see if he can serve out the 2nd set!!

ETA - he did - and he looked confident doing so!!

I am enjoying the Nadal-Rosol match. I think Nadal will come through at the end, but I really enjoy Rosol's style of play.

Nadal is playing horribly bad. I still think he will mount a comeback and win though.

Nadal whining about Rosol.
In other news, the sky is blue.

Actually he isn't - he had one unforced error in that 3rd set. I agree he isn't playing up to his usual standard - but that is because Rosol is putting him under pressure all the time!! Nadal is currently hard pushed to try to find an answer to some of the Rosol shots.

Rosol is fun to watch!

Nadal finally stepped up and Rosol finally went off the boil and Nadal takes the 4th with 2 breaks of serve!!

Not sure if this is a good decision - close the roof to finish the match!!

I switched over and they're showing Nadal walking into Rosol rather deliberately. What's going on there?

Pretty shitty of Nadal. I hope the press calls him on his lack of sportsmanship. I really couldn't see anything glaring that Rosol did that would warrant such a reaction. Nadal is such a spoiled diva.

Gack, Raonic had opportunities to take a two set lead on that twerp Querry, everything Querry does annoys the hell outta me. Seems like a very negative, bitter person. Now they have to go back and grind it out tomorrow. Really hope Raonic can step it up, he's a better player than he showed today.

I'm getting really sick of Nadal and his b/s antics. I used to cheer for him but now he's turned into a spolied little princess and I hate that. I'm cheering for Fed all the way!

Nadal was complaining to the chair because he didn't like the way that Rosol was moving his racquet and feet while Nadal was serving (Rosol was moving it from hand to hand).

Later in the match, Rosol picked up a ball Nadal had served and Rosol returned poorly, to check if it was broken - McEnroe said he was implying Nadal was serving a bad ball on purpose.
