Beside, Rosol's performance against Nadal was great in the service game department, but not in the return game department. A better server could have won this match.
Fair enough, I just don't ever remember seeing a player hit as many clean winners and unplayables against Nadal as Rosol did that day. It really was amazing to watch. If I remember correctly the match was on centre court at Wimbledon and the court had the roof on. This definitely made the court play faster, so going for winners was obviously the right thing to do, but Rosol's huge shots just kept going in. I bet even now Nadal cannot believe what happended in that match, it was a real shock.
