    Aha! Sometimes Rosol swings his racquet while Nadal is still preparing... nothing particularly wrong with that.

    Rafa could well be going out here. Doesn't look right at all today.

    Alright, we've all had our fun. Time for Nadal to come back and win now. Enough of the shenanigans.

    he might wll kick himself for that. Wonder how long this match will go on for before they have to put up the roof and lights? the timing of that could be crucial. I would be amazed if it wasn't at the wrong time for the underdog.. top players will always get favoured methinks

    Rafa is rattled big time. Rosol's pace is being enforced on the match. I hope this fires Rafa up.

    Rosol should have won that 1st set TB. He dumped that easy crosscourt forehand into the net on set point. :(

    What the heck's wrong with Nadal today. Doesn't seem too happy!

    Great volley by Rosol!

    Oh please Ralph, just F*** off if you're daring to complain about your opponent jumping up and down on the spot. After all the cr@p you come out with to put your opponents off, you've the cheek to complain?

    And people wonder why many of us criticize him on court.

    Rafa is playing an inexperienced player who is likely to choke at crucial moments, and he could only win a set with a really tight TB, probably his worst GS match in years.

    Not very sportsmanlike of Ralph brushing Rosol during break

    What the hell? Nadal just bumped Rosol at the changeover, when he almost always waits for the other guy to pass at net before he does.

    If I was Rosol, I'd take that attempt to intimidate as a compliment! Rafa must be taking him seriously.

    Referee's office has confirmed the match will finish tonight - they'll close the roof if need be.

    It's Centre Court so Nadal's luck out.

    Rosol GOATing against Nadal even better than Fed or Djoko, took him a set to figure it out.

    Just why "should" he have won the first set?.

    I don't know what Rafa is doing here. Not playing well at all.

    Rosol is playing awesome!! If only he could do that consistently...

    Rosol better take this set, then he might still have a little chance.

    Given that the roof isn't already up, will they use it for the lights when it gets dark?

    Or do they only use it for the lights if it was already closed during the day for rain?

    EDIT: Sorry, just saw Batz's post there saying they will indeed close the roof.

    Nada is trying to dig deep into his bag to pull out that butt-pirate snarl.

    Although I am going for Nadal...

    I am actually enjoying seeing some human emotions in tennis.

    Nadal was trailing against Haase and Petzschner 2 years ago. How did that work out?

    To be fair, Nada should not have to play any early round matches at W while the surface is istill grass.
    Ralpha should be exempt until the surface turns to dirty clay....like around the quarters or so.
