Rosol choked the second set very badly from 4-2 and 6-6 5-3 up. Was over after that. Nadal will make at least the QF now probably, with both Kohli and Karlovic bombing out

Rosol remains dangerous -- not at all a slap-happy basher. Nadal did well to contain the peril.

Nadal celebrating like he just won the title :lol:

Rosol was played very well until he was up a set and 4-2 and after that was pretty awful. Just beat himself really.

I think that Rosol proved to himself and everyone else that the first win was far from a fluke.

The first set and a half, he played absolutely astounding tennis, much like the final set of the initial match.

It's a shame he blew it, he was almost there. It would've been tough to see a Nadal comeback at 2-0 down with the confidence he would've had.

He'll be gutted, but nothing to be ashamed of. He's a badarse, definitely.

It was all downhill for Rosol after he DF on set point(set 2). Rafa served well, got his racquet on every Rosol bomb and deserves credit for avoiding the early upset.

Rosol had a match on the racquet, was up a break in the second, had SP.

He didn't keep up the intensity after a DF in the TB.
