    I expect a match determined by serving and powerful hitting. Going to be an entertaining match, but I expect Raonic in 3.

    Can u say "UE"? Neither are super steady...Rosol steals a set but Raonic prevails, maybe 3 TBs total.

    For the first time I will be cheering like hell for Milos. Rosol is a d-bag of the highest order.

    This. I like Le Canadien but he can be annoyingly inconsistent.

    Why because he humiliated Nadal? Nadal is the d-bag for bumping into Rosol.

    Should include a ace poll, neither of them are great returners.

    There's this thing called ... a draw. Perhaps you've heard of it.

    I don't know much about Rosol other than that he played amazing tennis against Nadal last year at Wimbledon. What makes him a d-bag?

    His big arrogant mouth. Him saying he can beat Nadal and Fed whenever he wants to, then going out and eating a bagel afterward from juggernaut Paulo Lorenzi. Him saying he believes Nadal was a 100% when he beat him at Wimby, even though he hasn't played a match since. Him saying that the tour doesn't really miss Nadal...etc. He is also universally disliked in the locker room. Hopefully, Milos takes out the trash tonight.

    Never though he would go that far. Pretty funny that you would cheer for Milosh....when you don't like him either.

    Doubtful. Nadal has too much partying to do at Atic to care about this d-bag Rosol.

    "Coincidentally" the same was said of Soderling. And what do both of them have in common?....

    Raonic will win this one. I voted 5 by mistake, it should be 3 or 4 (if Milos loses focus).

    The gap between them is huge. You guys are extrapolating too much from the Rosol Nadal match.

    very few are interested!

    Nadal-haters are the only ones seemingly infatuated with rosol :twisted:

    Raonic in 3. If he sleeps like he did against Hajek, maybe in 4.

    Milos breaks in the first game of the second. Serving 40-40, 1-0, 1x0.

    Man this match deserved more than SC13....Take out Kuzzy and that lady out of MCA.

    Who wouldn't like to see the future top 10 player vs the NadalDestroyer!

    Notice that the "Winner" and "Unforced Error" counts listed are identical to the ace and double-fault statistics; on the outer courts, they don't have people monitoring all of the statistical minutiae of a match, but only the basics which will go on the ATP website (first-serve percentage, points won on first and second serve, aces, double faults, break points held and won, points won on the return, total points won).

    Wow, lower case letter AND went to the trouble of using the size button to make the letters small.

    Hypocrite of the highest order. Acusing me of spelling Nadal's name with a lower case n on purpose as some bizarre form of insult (despite the fact that sometimes i put a "N" and sometimes a "n" - so not consistantly lower case, and I miss capitals a lot in general) I told you that YOU invented this lunatic idea of insulting a player and here is the proof - you going one step better and making their name small :lol: No possible way to explain it as accidental, no way it could be your predictive text on a phone like what happens to me sometimes. Totally premeditated.

    You are one strange person.

    I assumed he meant "sets", but the nickname made no sense. He misspelled both his first and last names, too. Sometimes Gilbert takes it a bit too far. I know it's all in good fun, but still.

    Now that I don't care who wins between these two, it's really fascinating to read your comments on Rosol. I can empathize with you, really. On return games Rosol was purposefully distracting Nadal, it seemed obvious. But the magnitude of Rosol's shady tactics seemed to be roughly on par with what I've seen Rafa do, in sum in so many little ways, many times before. So, I don't want to start bickering about who did what, or whose antics were worse. I just believe they were roughly equivalent and that, while Rosol may have raised the bar over how far a player can go with impunity in purposefully distracting his opponent serving, I believe (along with many observers) that Rafa, too, has rewritten more than a few pages from the so called book of competitive etiquette. Again I empathize with you...it's just so fascinating, looking objectively from the outside in at some object "out there," only to discover that I'm actually looking in the mirror. Yeah, Rosol may be a dirt bag as well as Rafa is a sweet heart who interestingly competes like a dirt bag at times in my opinion.

    Hey 'sensitive' one, i never said it was an accident. I 'certainly' did it on purpose; just like I purposely just used the word certainly to confuse your tiny brain...

    any other questions :twisted:

    BTW; I've been spelling rosol like that for a while now (symbolizing his incredible insignificance). If you'd paid better attention, instead of mastering the art of duplicity, you'd know that!
