Second Serve


Another week and yet another on-court incident involving Lukas Rosol.

The Czech player found himself being complained about again but this time by Andy Murray during their quarterfinal match in Munich.

After Rosol won the first set, he bumped shoulders with Murray during the changeover as they walked to their chairs.
Murray later complained to the umpire and then was visibly seen saying to Rosol, "(This is) every week. No one likes you on tour. Everybdy hates you."

The UK No. 1 went on to earn a comeback win 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 to reach the semifinals.

Last week in Bucharest, Rosol found himself facing the ire of eventual champion Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain during their match.

Upon winning, Garcia-Lopez initially refused to shake hands with Rosol at net. After being urged by the umpire, Garcia-Lopez did offer his hand only for it to be ignored by Rosol who then celebrated as if he had won the match.

The Spaniard later said he was unhappy with Rosol's continued complaining to the umpire about Garcia-Lopez taking too much time during the match and with the Czech's rudeness.

“He’s okay away from the court,” Garcia-Lopez said. “I don’t know why he’s like this.”
