Peak Janowicz vs Peak Rosol
 
They play two times:

One is on Rosol's favorite surface, Wimbledon centre court with the roof closed.

One is on Janowicz's favorite surface, Paris Bercy centre court.

Both matches are best-of-five sets.

Who wins?

Definitely not Nadal or Murray

Peak Rosol

TheCheese 11-16-2012 10:24 PM

I'll take Rosol.

Rosol that day would have defeated anyone.

Whatever helps you sleep at night. There is no need to make sweeping generalizations, the match is over, let it go.

I would take Rosol at this point over Janowicz, but Janowicz is still young. :)

I have let the match go a long time ago... On the other hand I have seen the highlights of the match about 50 times..

Rosol was destroying Nadal, especially in the 5th set

There is no doubt about what Rosol was doing to Nadal. To generalize that to what would happen to another player with a different style is pure speculation, at best.

I doubt we have seen peak Jano yet.... but based on the two perfomances obviously rosol, this coming from a guy of of polish descrnt

Sabratha 11-17-2012 02:44 AM

Janowicz is better.

Mortifier 11-17-2012 02:47 AM

5th set Rosol without a doubt. It was perfection. He was perfection.

But if you count in consistency, Janowicz is the man.

My takeaways......
Highlights for tennis are 2nd only to hockey in showing how utterly amazing the pros are.
3:00 - they were talking about how Rafa "has never been more healthy"
5:15 - lineman nearly has his head taken off by a serve
Rosol was hitting BOMBS all day.

Nadal had no chance that day.

Janowicz in 4.

dominikk1985 11-17-2012 07:24 AM

peak rosol is of course hard to beat but any hard serving and forehanding guy is when he is on:). Gulbis is hard to beat too when he does have a good day.

It is just hard to do anything when someone paints the line with 100 mph FHs.

However most of those bombers like gulbis or rosol rarely have such days. more often than not they make a ton of errors.

JJ has some power too but he seems to be much more consistent that those all or nothing bombers. guys like rosol are like boxers who want the KO with every punch and swing for the fences. but good boxers try to box smart and only go for it when they see an opening.

is this a serious question ? Janowicz is a up and coming top 20 or top 10 player.

NadalAgassi 11-17-2012 07:37 AM

Janowicz pretty easily. Rosol is already almost 30 so it seems like he has had his one and only moment in the sun so to speak. Janowicz is likely to be a top 5 player someday.

not sure if he has the mental fortitude for top 5. don't think so. he looks like he is bit psychotic. top 10 maybe.

Maybe it is just wishful thinking since the ATP badly needs some young blood but I think he has top 5 talent, especialy thinking how weak the ATP will be once Nadal, Djokovic, and Murray fade further.
