Lukas Rosol competes on the ATP Challenger Tour and the ATP World Tour, both in singles and doubles. His only win came in January 2012 where he won the Doha, Qatar Open, which is a ATP World Tour 500 series on hard court. He’s in deep against Nadal.
Rafael Nadal won his first-round match over Thomaz Bellucci in straight sets Tuesday, but admitted that he was uneasy at the start of the match, which saw him lose the first four games. The World No. 2 went on to dominate the first set tie-break, and then found his rhythm, dropping just five games over the next two sets against his fellow left-handed competitor to win 7-6(0), 6-2, 6-3.
“The important thing and the best feeling for me is that I improved my game during the match, and that’s important for the practice of tomorrow and the next match,” Nadal said. “I need to keep improving. [It’s[ going to be a difficult tournament, but I am here to try my best, as I did every year, and hopefully I can play a little bit better in the next round.”
In his first grass court tournament of the season at Halle, Nadal advanced to quarterfinals, where he lost to Philipp Kohlschreiber 6–3, 6–4.
Head to Head: These players have never played each other in Qualifying, or at a Challenger or Futures event.
The Bottom Line: Nadal won’t be challenged until the semi-finals, maybe even the quarters. Want to dominate the books this season with some of the best Wimbledon Picks experts in the business?
