yeah I agree, as much as I'm not a fan of the perpetual knees excuse, he didn't look all there and his reaction to the loss was milder too.

I have voted yes purely from the long-term statistical point of view. In the eyes of those who actually watched the matches, clearly not.

Rosol was first, it is always harder.(I think Gilles Müller doesnt quite qualify because Nadal was only teenage clay specialist back in 2005 )

Many players were close to beat Nadal in 1st week ( Kendrick, Haase,Petchzner, Söderling), but they couldnt finish the job. Rosol did it in style tennis world always will remember.

Many people will beat Dull if he bothers to show up for non clay Grand Slams in the future but it was Rosol who first exposed him. His mighty accomplishment will never be diminished.

Nah.

Rosol was the pioneer and that match was on CC. It also finished at night under the roof, which only made it more epic.

No way. Rosol played lights out amazing, even if Nadal was 100% he wouldn't have won that match. Darcis played solid, but Nadal was way more vulnerable then even last year!

Obviously nadal has declined a lot

He's lost a yard in foot speed, on clay he gets away with it because its more about a war of attrition on slow courts

On fast grass he got exposed badly. Hd he played roger he would have been tripled bagled had he played like this

Nobody can diminish the significance of GOATsol. GOATcis merely joins his league.

No. That was epic match.

Forced nadal to be mentally injured and not to play next 7 months - until next clay season.

“Does Djokovic resemble myself?” Agassi said. “No, he is even better. He defends really well, while I struggled more in that element of the game. Novak looks totally relaxed when defending, completely calm and the quality of his return is incredible. He is also extremely flexible in his game, which is facilitated by his ability to anticipate his rival’s moves. That is why I think he is a much more versatile player than I was and he is also much more athletic.”

Yes. After Rosol brutally destroyed Dull, Dull was afraid to ever step on Wimbledon court again. Taking advantage of this mental weakness, Darcis expectedly cruised through.

And this.

GOATsol inspired GOATcis. He showed the world it's possible to take out Nadal at Wimbledon in the first week if you don't choke.
