    So Rosol is 0-2 against Nole, 0-1 against Fed, and 1-1 against Rafa. Murray is the only member of the big 4 he has not yet faced. Will he capitalize on Murray's current crappy form and pull off an upset. I think Murray is a better matchup for Rosol then Fed. Andy will play a little more passive and give Rosol some slower shots (and second serves) to tee of on. With Murray's current form I see Rosol taking a set. What do you guys think?

    Andy Murray honestly should win in two. Unless he really messes up due to lingering back problems.

    GOATsol always wins.

    Rosol is a toss up though.

    While Murray could lose to anyone I think he wins today.

    Lol at the umpire during the coin-toss, "when asking for a hawkeye, please make it clear".

    Nice sportsmanship from Murray. Unlike Delpotro.

    GOATsol breaks!! He really has some easy power. Avg BH speed 79 mph to Murray's 67.

    Guys guys, you need to watch this. Rosol just turned God mode as he did with nadal and it's bloody funny.

    Shame I can't find an english commentating stream.

    Murray should be playing in the challengers until he learns how to play again. He's awful.

    Murray's fail form continues and Rosol is capitalizing easily.

    Murray messes up and Rosol serves for the set.

    Completely crap by Murray. If he doesn't have the heart for it, just retire.

    This has to happen, to teach Murray a lesson.....playing passive vs aggressive players = destruction

    I expect Murray to come back but he is so far from where he needs to be

    He won't win, Rosol is outplaying him in all departments...even the slice department.

    Murray won't do anything with this defensive-opportunistic-brad-gilbert-type-of-junk tennis, not only against Rosol.
    Guys have already figured him out. He needs to do what Nadal had done after those loses to Djokovic - become MORE offensive player.

    Otherwise, his rankings will drop even lower.

    Rosol is playing like the world number 6 and Murray is playing the role of the journeyman.

    Rosol gets the break, but I'm not sure if it means anything.

    Even though Rosol is one of my favorite players, I have to admit: THIS IS A TERRIBLE MATCH.

    Kind of a dubious point in that service game let Rosol off the hook. Andy should have challenged at 15-30.

    Wow great volley by Murray there

    From what I've seen, he's very hit and miss. So hard to tell when if he's playing well or not since it fluctuates during the match. I guess he kind of plays like Berdych but a lot worse (although Berdych doesn't like the comparison:p).

    He plays really bad if he gets nervous or loses confidence, like I feel he just did with that last game and that horrible drop shot.

    Rosol is only good when he is in the zone. This is his average level, from what I have seen.

    Murray is good at bringing the level down then getting his own form back and winning. You see this a lot.

    Murray must have played a hideous 1st set.

    I don't know what Murray's been doing, but this looks like he's at about 50% -- barely awake.

    I must agree with the general consensus. This match is quite poor so far.

    I missed the first but he couldn't have been much worse then now. 6-3 he takes the 2nd, poor match.
