    Djokovic lost the last match he played and he was up 3-0 in the third.

    The very last match he played.

    But you knew that and were just trolling right?

    LOL Novak was only 3-0 up in that set because of some lackluster play from Delpo.

    Rafa was serving for the match and choked, losing 5 games on the spin.

    Poor form by Djokovic. Knocking the power out so that he can delay the beating he is going to receive from Rosol.

    LOL I hope you bet all your money on Rosol.

    There's no way Djokovic is going to lose this.

    I didn't, I assumed because of the supposed power outage.

    Fortunately I'm not that messed up in the head. However, I would enjoy Rosol playing like he did against Nadal at Wimbledon lol.

    Is Rosol hitting the ground with his tennis racquet every time right before Djokovic serves? Because I keep hearing that sound. Pretty annoying, even for me.

    That was once in a lifetime performance and plus he faced Nadal, who is probably one of the most susceptible of the big 4 to these crazy upsets.

    1 ace and 38% first serves. Pathetic. This is the real Rosol.

    3 net cord points for Rosol already...

    That's what happens when you play the greatest returner in the game.

    Nole is already up two breaks so far in this second set..Rosol is beyond awful, Djokovic has to just stand there.

    Funny to see how bad Rosol moves, the guy can't get to any balls more than 2m away from him.

    It just reaffirms that Rosol is a one-impressive-win wonder.

    Did anyone actually think Rosol had a chance? :lol:

    Its almost comical how bad he is so far, even worse than the initial set IMO. I guess that one match covered up his many weaknesses. Non existent return, no game strategy (just whack it) and poor movement, especially when he has to move forward.

    What a Backhand DTL from Rosol. He is swinging freely now.

    Rosol is a one win wonder who will NEVER repeat the level he had against Nadal last year. I am praying that Nadal gets to play this smart*ssed mug again so he can give him a beatdown. You know I loathe a player when I am rooting for Cvac over him. Rosol is getting what he deserves and showing his true ability, which is not anything to write home about.

    sigh.. worst approach ever, right into Djokovic's backhand. It's as if he doesn't want to win any games this set. He's had a lot of game points..

    His game does remind me of Berdych's though. Do all Czech players get taught that flat, agressive style? It would explain why there's not more than 1 good Czech player at the moment (not counting steph, he has his own style)
