    Can we close this topic please?
    It makes me depressed to be reminded all the time of what happened at Wimbledon last year :)

    I found it odd that I haven't posted in this thread...so just leaving my mark here.

    Odds of this thread continuing until this years Wimbledon?

    I really hope, for some of you, that you have mental problems and you don't seriously care about a tennis match this much.

    They just hate Nadal, that's all! They don't like Federer, too, but they love his achievements.


    But I must say, OP deserved this! :twisted:

    Really ? You mean like for the rest of his career ?

    Some really epic poasts on page 1 :D

    OP, you had better not start any threads for Nadal's match this year or you might risk jinxing him again :neutral:

    Damm, I was going to bump this on the 1 year anniversary.

    OP (aka Nadal Slam King aka VAMOSDNA aka King Of Clay) please can you make threads for Nadal v Kubot/Andreev, Paire and Isner if these matches take place.

    There's another Lukas waiting for him in the second round this time. Time for Kubot to show the world what he's made of!

    Nadal is in the same quarter with Rosol this year, too.


    But Federer'd be first, lucky moonballer strikes again.

    Then the verb Rosoled could be replaced by Kubutted meaning to spank.

    He might just get "Stevedored" out of the draw in R1. After all, it's not smart to fool around with Mother Nature by skipping all the grass tune-ups!

    I just watched this match for the first time (only saw a couple minutes of highlights before). Wow. Had no idea Rosol was so incredibly on, especially in that 5th set. He ended his last three service games with 10 straight winners (inc. 7 aces!). Probably the biggest match of his career, and he had fewer nerves closing out a match against a top player that I have ever seen. Ice cold running through his veins. And probably the most emphatic last service game I've ever seen, to boot.

    He started getting a bit slap-happy during the Nadal service games after his break, but the way he was playing, he didn't even hint of needing the insurance of a double break. Nadal was given absolutely nothing to work with on the Lukas serve, and Rosol's groundies were just stunning.

    Too bad that it may remain the highlight of his career, though I guess with players apparently blooming later these days, maybe he'll make the 2nd week of a Slam sometime soon.

    And I find it interesting that Nadal has had 2 low-ranked players play the match of their lives to knock him out of a Grand Slam in stunning fashion, the other obviously being Tsonga at the Australian (who was not ranked high at the time). Maybe Rafa brings it out of people, which makes watching his early rounders a bit more interesting. :)
