    So the big stories of 2012 meet together in the 1st round. Who's gonna win? Both are totally unpredictable in terms of consistency. HOW MANY GAMES is Rosol gonna win?

    True, but that's starting to be less and less of an accompishment these days.

    Being the world number 26 makes you a challenger level nobody? Wow, I wonder what Tomic is then. Futures? Maybe a NCAA player.

    We all know Rosol is overhyped and is mentioned far too often. But Janowicz flatters to deceive as well I think, not drinking his syrup. As a result, this match feels utterly irrelevant....

    You know, having never put a racket on a tennis ball, helpes him talk big.

    Pity, that he doesn't realize, that there are tens of millions useless people like him.
    He thinks, that he is pretty unique.

    Polish power wins in easy straights. 6-2 6-4. No need to save any break points.

    So . . . using NSK "logic", that means JJ is now the de facto world number one.

    Which is to say that the man who beats the number two player in the world is therefore a better player than the number two player in the world.

    Thus the man who beats the man who beat the number two in the world must necessarily be the new de facto #1.

    Yet again, the greatest and most exciting achievement in the history of world history. :lol:

    Open 13 is worth the same points that Viña and São Paulo...

    Rosol, Kamke, and Dustin Brown are three brothers from other mothers when it comes to their style.

    They obliterate the ball, only show shot diversity once in a while, and go all out, no matter what. This is nice when the shots are going in...but it rarely happens, and they lose more often than not.

    Rosol had his day against Nadal...but remember what happened against Kohlschreiber.

    And with 5 top ten players in the draw, it's probably more competitive than either Viña del Mar or São Paulo.

    I don't really understand why some people choose to be so negative towards up and coming players. Instead of supporting and encouraging young players, there seem to be a lot of bitter people out there keen on putting them down.

    That is because 6-1 6-3 6-0 fears younger players coming up and beating Nadal. He thinks that Nadal will stay in his prime until Nadal is 40 years old. Can you say delusional? :razz: You have to ignore his posts (and he has about 10 accounts) so you have to do a lot of ignoring.

    I'll go with JJ. I think he's got more weapons.

    Expectations for Janowicz sky-rocketed based on his run to the finals in Paris, but I think people need to remember that this will be his first real season playing tour level competition. He's a talent, but nothing comes easy in today's tennis. He's going to have some ups and downs as he adjusts to the big leagues and the step up in competition. Hard not to like his potential though...huge serve, great touch, moves exceptionally well for a guy his size. Of all the young guys touted as the next slam winners, I think he's got the highest ceiling.
