After Nadal took the first set 7-6, Rosol responded to win the next two sets, 6-4, 6-4, to put some pressure on the heavily-favored Nadal. Nadal picked up some momentum in taking the fourth set 6-2, but then the match was delayed a half hour while the roof was closed. Whether that delay was ill-timed or not for Nadal, his strong fourth-set play did not carry over, and Rosol took the match with a 6-4 fifth set victory.
