RG R1: Rosol def. Roger-Vasselin 3-6 6-2 6-4 3-6 7-5

Excellent win for Rosol in an entertaining match. No moonballing, both were having a go.

Rosol broke for the match.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Rosol wins his first grand slam match against a local wild card.

Nice effort from Rosol, I thought he would immitate Berdych after he was up 4-2 in the final set and blew a matchpoint.

He's probably gonna be in Top 100 soon but that won't save Czech tennis from its current pathetic state.

I´ve seen many people complaining about Rosol being a bad player but I actually liked his game in this match Or he just had a good day? I saw him for the first time.

Too bad for Edouard

Flyboy will go on about how Rosol is shit. He had an early break in the 5th, then Roger-Vasselin got it back. The poor guy plays a lot of close matches, but can't get over the line.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

right, for someone who enjoyed the moonballing of borg and vilas in the past, moonballing sucks these days......

No random, out-of-the-blue run for ERV at RG this year

I noticed a few similarities:

- muggish face
- double-handed backhand
- rather flat forehand

Stepanek was in Rosol's age when won his first match in Paris.

Well I don't expect Rosol to even enter Top 80, Stepanek is much more skilled player and was already top 50 when he had his first win at RG.
