NADAL TAKES REVENGE FOR ROSOL HUMILIATION

0

LONDON: Rafael Nadal avenged his shock 2012 Wimbledon defeat to Lukas Rosol on Thursday (Friday in Manila) with a tense and hard-fought 4-6, 7-6 (8/6), 6-4, 6-4 win over the big-hitting Czech. Nadal, who next faces Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan, finished with 35 winners to Rosol’s carefree hammering of 50, but crucially the Spanish winner of 14 Grand Slam titles gave up just nine unforced errors in the two-hour 44-minute encounter.
