    Rafa #2 is in a tiebreak and the TV is showing Fish.

    Rosol is probably playing the match of his life. I rarely see Rafa's FH being exploited that much.

    Please just take a set from Nadal, we know he'll win anyway but just make things more interesting. 5-4 Rosol.

    Rafa partied to much after Spain reached the final. It was a late nighter since the game went into ET as well.

    I really don't understand why the umpire isn't stopping the match right now. What is he waiting for?

    no way can Rosol keep this up for the entire match, but would be nice to see him win the 1st set.

    Umpire needs to be fired. This is ridiculous that he isn't stopping the match.

    I'd like to pick up on of those Lotto hats. Simple, but stylish. Solid effort from Rosol so far, hoping he can sneak away with this set.

    Rosol gagged off and easy fh at the net, giving Nada the first set. ok, turn out the lights, Rosol will be deflated after that and will roll over. Nada will take the next 2 sets: 6-1,6-0.

    He played poor but is always strong in tie breaks where it's all about holding your nerve.

    That fact that Rafa was pushed so much tells you how bad his form is.

    But that's it, Rafa in 3 now, Rosol will seriously impress me if he can still take a set.

    I wonder what the odds are on Nadal winning tiebreaks, even if its 1 to 2, just bet your house on it lol.

    Nadal is playing pretty ropey but come the final or semis he'll be on fire. did kohlshrieber lose today? If so there's not a chance he loses a set before the quarters at least which will help.

    He's still playing as if he's on clay. Let's hope he gets into grass rhythm soon. It's always tough to compete against players that have been practicing for weeks on grass.

    From balls of steel to this. Which is it?

    Duke Nukem is the only one with balls of steel, so I think we know the answer to this question.

    Wow Rosol actually broke right after the heartbreaking loss of the TB. Nadal DFs, commentators are talking in disbelief.

    On key moments he can raise his game. That doesn't make the overall level of his very poor today.

    Nadal knows how to play on faster courts. He's not a chump. He's already played 700+ matches and has done well in Queens and other faster surfaces. It's all about a lack of confidence in his ability to be aggressive and move on this surface. At this rate, he will be mauled by Djokovic, and maybe even Federer. Not to mention, he might lose to Tsonga/Murray earlier than that.

    Crap tennis overall. Without being biased, this guy doesn't look like he's ever won wimbledon. Forget about making 5 finals and 2 titles.
