How did Rosol become this good? I've watched him a couple of times before and he was either a choker, opportunity waster or error machine

Rosol is angry at the world and he's taking it out on tennis balls.

Jurgen looked injured the entire 5th set. With that said, he should have won the 4-4 game in the 5th. Rosol was choking and Jurgen just couldn't put points together. I knew that as soon as he lost the tiebreak in the 4th, he wasn't winning.

Dedicated to Filo, with all the crap he spews about Rosol.

Melzer had enough time to kill this one off. Rosol has weapons, they just don't always function went for it and got rewarded. Haha, carnage city this Roland Garros.

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 was choking but Melzer didn't let him finish the job. Which gave Rosol extra motivation. With that said, Rosol was better than Melzer really the entire match outside of some select moments. He was totally outhitting Melzer from the baseline. IF he can keep this type of form up, he's going to be pretty dangerous going forward, because he doesn't really have many weaknesses.

Oh man, too good. Let's make May 26 the official "Choker's Day" on RG.
Some of them lose... some win. It's all good.
