Rafael Nadal survives early scare against Lukas Rosol in Basel [PHOTOS]

For Rafael Nadal, Basel nearly ended at the beginning. Our champ came from a set down to beat No. 92 Lukas Rosol 1-6, 7-5, 7-6(4). At first he struggled to adjust to quite fast indoor conditions, but as the match was going on he found his rytham and sealed victory after two hours and 16 minutes.

After the match, Rafa said: “For me it was very difficult to adjust. I tried to survive in that second set and wait for an opportunity.” (via AP)


  1. The first set and a half rafa was asleep.. not sure if it was jetlag… yes rasol was red lining.. but rafa was hitting it so short.. even by 2015 rafa standards.. but what’s noticeable with rafa now to say 2015 RG is.. his fight is back.. which is awsome. . He even shouted out in frustration. . Which was good to see.. even started standing close and attacking though started that too late. Once he attacked rasol started missing.
    The court at Basel looks miserable with no bounce at all.. and rasol as usual was a total Dick.. Nice comeback but I wish Rafa was more positive from the start.. a better player would not choke and Rafa would have lost today. Anyway good luck for the next game..
