The Nadal-Rosol match shapes up to be one of the, if not the most interesting second round match in the history of Wimbledon. In order to fully understand the emotions behind this match, we need to go back exactly 2 years in time.

On June 28, 2012, the two faced each other in the second round, where Lukas Rosol won in an epic 5-setter. That match had all kinds of drama in it, Rosol taking the lead, Nadal storming back, then a rain delay! In the fifth set - now under closed roof - Nadal even tried to take away Rosol’s concentration by bumping into him during a changeover. It didn’t work. Rosol was playing as a man possessed, serving massive aces and hitting boisterous winners from all over the court.

 

If we’re judging the two players by what they showed in the first round, surprisingly, we might have to give the edge to Rosol once again. The Czech – just like Nadal – needed 4 sets to overcome his opponent, but Benoit Paire played much better than Nadal’s opponent, Martin Klizan, who apart from the first set, made easy errors from all over the court.

Rafael Nadal was definitely beatable during that match, and if the Spaniard can’t improve his level of play, this terrific re-match can easily turn out to be another early Wimbledon exit for him, for the third straight time.
