Who is Lukas Rosol?

29 Jun

The answer is: The man we’ll never forget!

Standing 6’5” tall, Lukas Rosol the aspirant metamorphosed into an inspiration on June 28, 2012, as he stunned Spanish tennis stalwart, Rafael Nadal and the world with his spectacular conquest in a 5-set match that lasted all of 3 hours and 18 minutes on Centre Court, Wimbledon.

Taking nothing away from his remarkable game and histrionics, the truth is that Czechoslovakia-born Rosol himself doesn’t know what hit him; Nadal doesn’t know either, and spectators like Yours Truly are left blinking not knowing…errr…what hit them!

In fact, Lukas confessed that he was excited to be on Centre Court at Wimbledon just to see what it looked like: the spectators, the surroundings, how it’s all done. The 26-year-old was there to first take in the experience, and then play the game. He wasn’t sure if he was there to ever win.

The match between Nadal and Rosol had a semblance of the David and Goliath fairytale. Only who was David and who Goliath, no one could tell.

The question now being raised is: Is Lukas (Seeded 100) just a one-match wonder, or is he one to look out for? The tennis player himself may not be able to answer this one as he basks in the glory of his astonishing but well-deserved win; he describes the feeling as ‘dreamlike’. At the same time, an unhappy and extremely disappointed Rafa brushes off the upset and says that ‘it was not a tragedy, just a tennis match’.

For Rosol though, this was surely not just a tennis match. It was much much more. Pinch, pinch.

    I saw a lot of website but I conceive this one contains something extra in it. “God is a comedian playing to an audience too afraid to laugh.” by Voltaire.
