In this particular case, he's a very sore loser and poor sport.
But hey, I've said that from day one.
Without the cheating, he might not have a single slam.

I would love to have watched the match. Maybe Rafa saw that this dute's career record on the ATP tour is 18-32 since turning pro in 2004.

Thank you, Lukas Rosol, you wiped out the entire T4U Army in 2R. I couldn't even do that!

You're my new favorite player.

How 'bout that Brian Baker!!!  :applause:  Paire up next. He's is a younger version of Rosol. 6'5" unknown with a big serve.

Dimitrov can't finish 2 sets.  ..-)

Lukas Rosol in the fifth set set the type of tennis game that I going to pattern my style and stroke development on.  LOL!  If I can copy him; I know I can face Federer, Djokovic with lot of confidences and work on a 6-0, 6-0 perfect match.  He is just great!  The fifth set was just a dream.  The strokes and his serve was just perfect!  Hard to believe he play with perfection almost or near in the fifth set!

It was a good match. I think he took the right attitude of just going for everything and in this match - it worked. Next natch he may lose in straight sets! Lol  - but for one match in his life, everything just came together for him.

WOW, I just woke up to find out Nadal out of SW19!!!! Too bad Nadal behaved that way, what a poor loser!!!

Anyway, this will open up the draw for Murray and will definitely will open up the rankings as well.. Aside from Djokovic, if Fed and Murray do well in this tournament rankings will go extremely close...

I am pulling for a Djokovic - Fed SF with Fed winning it!! I :)

Other players have to back to their business and concentrate their next match. Never underestimate every player.

Only watched the highlights. Rosol Hit the ball super hard. His height certainly helped him. I hope Fed can capitalize on this.

i agree..he's been very sore after this loss which is not usually the case.. :(

i saw the first set which nadal won..7-6..i switched on to the euro 2012..after 2 hours..BOOM..Nadal on the verge of losing.. :)>>>>

really really very much surprised..
this opens the lower half of draw very much..perfect chance for murray & tsonga to capitalize on this..:)

i think this is the chance for murray........nadal was in his way for the last 4 years at wimbledon and murray knows he can beat federer this time and surely djokovic on grass has to go down to murray........

it's now or never for murray........i think he will do it this time........

The door is now open for Andy (not Roddick).
Will this create even more pressure than he already has?

What happen? Djokovic just lost the 1st set. He missed too many break point chances.

Sam KO's Raonic. Wow. Go Sam, it's been a long road back. 

Not surprised Tomic is out early. Folks completely  misread beating a guy on his death bed (Soderling) last year. Now those points come off and he drops in the rankings to where he belongs. 

Dimitrov, Raonic, and Tomic out. So much for the young guns.

I'm not surprised that Raonic is out. I'm surprised that it was Querrey that took him out! Sam hasn't done anything this year. Good win for him even though I do not like his game! Lol
