    Next year's Wimbledon r2.. and Rosol wins in another 5, that would've been something..

    I've watched the highlights a couple of times too, it was a great match. Just not every day.

    I have to agree, the Nadal-Rosol match was far better than the Federer-Del Potro match today. Today's match was more of a serve-fest, like Tsonga-Raonic.

    That highlight set basically is every point served by Rosol.

    Nadal-Rosol match was terrible, because you knew if Rosol won it, he wouldn't win the next round. Whereas, if Nadal, it was assumed that Nadal would win the whole tournament. Certainly, the most shocking loss in grand slam history.

    there is no way 55% or so voted for Rosol in 5 before the match started... or even before the 5th set started.

    There must be a Hall of Fame thread where poasts like this one and 'Cincy- the real slam' should be added and preserved for posterity. It will serve as a guide for future generations of TTW trolls.

    Here's a suggestion for wiser, longer-tenured poasters than myself, who have greater knowledge of TTW lore. How about a poll to ask the TTW community to nominate, from among 5 or so options, the GFTOAT (greatest fail thread of all time)?

    The above poast and cincy would certainly be candidates, as noted by Sbengte. As would, I imagine, the poast about Rafa having an unbeaten streak of 42 to start 2013.

    I would do it myself except I've only been lurking around the boards since mid-2011. If someone does get around to it, a shout-out for the idea would be nice. (Only if you feel like it though!)

    Cheers!

    I would nominate among candidates Cesc's thread about Söderling not being able to defend his final run a RG in 2010...
    http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=298442
    and then there's also the legendary "its a digrace, its an scandal, its a outrage"...
    http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=329569
    ... which provided one of the most popular meme of TTW.

    To poke fun at them because they failed epically and have a good laugh while you're at it. What's wrong with that?

    Quotable quote.

    No matter what happens, this guy will say the same thing before every tournament. I am amazed that he didn't point out to Fed vs Rafa H2H (on clay mostly)

    One of the greatest threads of all time?

    Something tells me that the OP loves watching Nadal getting burned.

    I think the identity of the person that started the thread and his usual trolly resoluteness and then the outcome of the match is why this thread is still popular. Self explanatory, I know, but still.
