    I would have picked Rosol in 5, but I chose Rosol in 3

    Rosol in a third set tiebreak!

    I wish this guy would do something to back up his incredible match against Nadal last year. I don't care if he wins a slam or anything, but even a nice Janowicz-like run would do, or a good win here and there to prove he's not a total fluke.

    but he is... Not that it's necessarily a bad thing though, makes the Nadal match even a better story

    Prediction? Pain. Djokovic will destroy Rosol. Only a moonballer would have trouble with Rosol.

    Rosol is going to get rolled right over. He's the very definition of a fluke, and never in a million years would Cvac lose to a mug like him.

    If Rosol somehow pulls this off, he should do motivation speaking or something teach people how to overcome

    Rosol won't win since there is no Nadal in draw.

    So many comedy votes.

    Djokovic will prove precisely why Rosol's upset of Nadal will go down as the greatest upset in the history of sports.

    Djokovic will beat Rosol easily.

    Maybe, but he also had a relatively easy draw at IW but struggled against some players he (in theory) shouldn't have so we'll see.

    I think he realizes he needs to be more aggressive (with his FH and DTL BH).

    At IW Novak was using his FH as a rally shot and was fairly conservative with his placement allowing Delpo back into many rallies and then Delpo would turn it around with 1 huge FH. When Novak is at his best, he is not afraid to step in and go for the lines.

    yeah, he wasnt at his best in that match. i think he subconsciously wanted to preserve as much strength as he can for the finals. sure as hell bit him in the ass.
    not to mention once he went 3-0 in 3rd he prolly left his guard down. something unbecoming of him. oh well, you win you earn. you lose, you learn.

    should be no contest for djokovic.
    regarding djokovics aggressiveness in IW... well i think he was just fine (maybe let off a little bit mid-match against delpo).
    maybe, but just maybe had delpo also something to do with this...

    One thing about Djoker...

    Nadal, for all his greatness, has had a couple choke jobs in the last year. He had Rosol, he had Zeballos this year, and Hot Sauce last year.

    Djoker does not do this. He might have a slip up on 5-1 or 5-2 or something, but he either wins the tiebreak, or just annihilates you in the third.

    Rosol's dog food.

    Haha, no, Nadal never chokes - he may at times get obliterated, but I don't think there has ever been a very close match that he hasn't won. He wins all of the close ones.

    Against Tobasco it wasn't a choke job... He was beaten because he couldn't adjust to moving on the blue clay (too slippery) and also he lacked the purchase that is necessary for him to hit his customary heavy ball. He was beaten.

    Novak will school Rosol, just as most top pros do. It's a different level of the game between Rosol and the top guys.

    Nope, he was winning 5-2 in the 3rd set or something. And he choked.
