WG QF: Rosol def. Korolev 7-6(5) 6-7(2) 7-6(5) 6-2 (Czechs win 3-1)

Too good Rosol Czechs into the semis. Korolev served for the 3rd set at 5-4, but couldn't get it done.

Not bad from the reserves making the semis.

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".

Argentina couldn`t beat Czechs at home on clay - no way they would do it on hard in Praha.

Gasquet is next №1

Rosol is called a ballbasher but he only beat Golubev and Korolev because he can slice and they can't.

Tough match. Great fight by Lukas when he was down 3*-5 in the third set.

Another Fed Cup and Davis Cup semi for this little tennis powerhouse

Korolev should have played Hajek not Kukushkin. Korolev got tight at 5-4 in the third, he was basically serving 2 second serves. Korolev was far more aggressive and pro-active than Rosol.

Ever since RosLOL beat injured Nadal, there has been a massive circle jerk amongst haters every time this mug wins a match. Pathetic really. Without that fluke win, they would probably not know who this journeyman is. Another run of the mill mindless ballbasher like Chardy, Korolev, Gulbis, Korolev, Kukushkin and other such clowns bringing disrepute to ATP tour.

Rosol is still a fluke overrated mug.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

That´s true. But I think the difference today was that Rosol just had little bit more variety in his shots, especially on the backhand side. He mixed up with flat shots, slices and high topspin shots which created good angles and that suit well against flat hitters like Korolev if you can get it deep enough.

Great performance from Rosol . He fought really hard and seems to have toned down his ballbashing a bit. That's the way forward surely, being more controlled with his aggressive shots.

Btw, Korolev has really been hitting the gym, looking very strong. Shame that he wasn't able to keep up his level from a few years back.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal
