Nadal:Rosol not comparable to Soderling, Playing through Rio 2016
Since all you clowns can do is talk about Rosol every time Nadal is mentioned I thought you might enjoy this.
In an interview with Diario de Mallorca, Rafael Nadal says he first hurt his knee this season at Indian Wells in March, then it got worse when he was forced to retire against Andy Murray in Miami. He then competed with discomfort all the way until he stopped playing after Wimbledon.
Nadal said he took a risk in the semifinals of Roland Garros, where he posted a quick win despite playing with inflammation in his knee, but that he was solely focused on winning his seventh title there. He also said he was not surprised Lukas Rosol upset him in the second round of Wimbledon, because for the two weeks prior he was only able to train one hour a day, without running. “It was very bad, and I was playing with the knee asleep,” he said. “You always think you can do it, but it was not possible even though I did my best.”
Nadal added that his defeat to Rosol could not be compared to when Robin Soderling upset him at the 2009 French Open.
“There is no point of comparison,” he said. “Both have in common that my knee was bad, but I could compete at Roland Garros. In Wimbledon, no. The defeat to Rosol as was a death foretold for me.”
The 11-time Grand Slam champion added that being forced to pull out of the Olympic Games in London was worst feeling he has ever had when pulling out of an event. Nadal also pulled out of Wimbledon in 2009, where he would have been defending his title.
The 26-year-old has said that he is planning to play the 2016 Olympics in Rio, but has not thought beyond that.
"I don't give a rat's ass whether I'm playing a big or a small tournament. I'm Matwé Middelkoop, I go on that court and it doesn't matter who I'm facing. [...] Whether it's a blue court in Australia or a clay court in Morocco, I don't care."

Rafa is right, Rosol is not Soderling, not even close. Soderling played the final of RG the year after he beat Nadal there. Do fedtards claim here that Rosol is a candidate for a GS final? Hell, do they claim he is a candidate for an ATP tourney final?!
How more ridiculous fedtards can get? Only because Rafa beat the guy who they worship? Oh, please, there is only one God and his name is not Roger, so better stop your idoling or you will deal with the God
Let's get real,had Rafa been not hindered by his knee,Rosol would've probably lost.
nope, on closest Rosol's winner Nadal was a second late. Every knee took a second of his speed away. So by simple math -1+2=+1 . He would a second earlier on every ball and all those winners would stay winners just instead of going through him would go behind him . So Rosol wins again
