Rosol got a sensational touch on Tsong: I’m in euphoria and I have no words

He escaped two opponents’ swords. He gasped for a moment and seemed to lack his strength. Eventually, the world’s top ten Jo-Wilfried Tsonga stood on the court for almost four hours, and he sensitively won when he turned his third medal to the fifth set. Lukáš Rosol played his best game in the Davis Cup so far and brought the Czech team to the first and absolutely unexpected point in the fight against France.

“I have no words. I do not know what to say about what happened on the court, “Rosol drew on himself immediately after the match for CT Sport. And he confirmed that he did not really feel good at that moment.

“At some point I was pulling for a shorter end. In the fifth set, I was not doing well with that. But somehow it turned.Perhaps the unbelievable atmosphere in Třinec may have helped me, “said the lucky winner of the opening match between the Czech Republic and France.

It was important that Rosola did not break the gun service of his opponent. “I gradually became accustomed to this service and managed to return to court. When he served to the ladies, he could not take it, but I tried to stay calm. And it did. I’m in euphoria and I have no words.


I thank all those who have held my thumbs, “Rosol, who was struggling with the match against Tsonga, compared himself to his March victory over Alexander Zverev, who decided in the decisive fifth match on the course of the Czech team in a duel with Germany. > “But I’m winning over Tsonga. I defeated the opponent’s first, then it was a duel against the pair.I am happy that we have a point, but we still have a long and far-off way, “added Czech representative.
