What happened? I watched only the second part of that hilarious tiebreak, but they looked PISSED in the end :eek:

No handshake.

Rosol had 30-30 about 5 times on Lopez' serve in the second. He blew 2 set points, one with a pretty easy backhand down the line inside the service box.

Lopez lucky as anything with two shanks landing plum on the line in the tie-break late on. Celebrated both points like a tosser. Rosol tried to shake his hand but he declined. Then 5 seconds later he tried to shake Rosol's probably knowing it wouldn't look good. Rosol rightly refused.

Rosol seems a bit psychotic the way he acts on court, he seems to have serious problems. I find him so hard to watch.

Yes, but Rosol will be remembered as the one who refused the handshake.

What? Why? He had his big long arm sticking right out for about 3 seconds initially. The ugly Spaniard with the big ears was behaving like a cock, though. Rosol did nothing wrong in this match.

Not only were they late in the breaker, they were the points following 77 and 87. Whereas the first one was a winner, the second set up a short reply that GGL hit a dropshot of. Rosol barely managed to get up to the ball, and GGL had a simple high smash to finish it, which he attempted to hit Rosol with!

By the way, Rosol didn't refuse the second attempt, but GGL faked him and quickly pulled back his hand when Rosol raised his.

Didn't watch anything but the breaker, so I don't know who started it...

No endless loop? :(

I have no idea actually, but they might have also some personal issues then...

I like both players, but I will say this: Rosol, like Fognini and Lopez, has problems with a LOT of players. I have also seen both live on non TV courts and outside matches, and Garcia-Lopez was the nicest guy we saw while Rosol was very cold and almost got into a fight (with Andujar I think).

Oh really?
That is too sad to see.

So sick of these classless bottom feeders... Poor Lukas had to deal with this mug. :sad:

Better man lost. Sportsmanship and class > victory and luck.

Other players have said that Lukas Rosol is one of the nicest guys off court! Last year in the final Dimitrov said he is a real gentlemen. And some of the Spanish guys have problems with behaving that's for sure.

From my experience, it was the complete opposite.

Whatever. Rosol is a real man, a badarse. Lopez is not known for anything, he just blends in.

Same. I've seen Rosol here in UK at Wimbledon and he seemed a really nice guy, even on the outside courts he had lots of time for fans. Not had any experience of GGL though he did act a complete child here.

Basically all Rosol's "enemies" seems to be spaniards though. He had troubles with Andujar, Feli Lopez, Nadal and now Garcia Lopez.

I don't know what happened in the match, but not shaking hands (with either opponent or umpire) after the match is disgusting. And it wasn't just that, in the match point he tried to hit Rosol. Had the court open for the put away volley, but instead tried to go for Rosol's body. Too bad he didn't missed the court, would've been a good lesson. :devil:

Like Nadal would say: "Bad, berry bad!" :facepalm:
