first_imgBoth Yuki and Rosol began with solid holds with Rosol Both Yuki and Rosol began with solid holds with Rosol hitting service winners as big as 210kms per hour. In each of the first two games he hit two aces with a speed of more than 200kms. As the 6?5 Czech was serving too well, it was crucial for Yuki to hold his own but consistent forehand errors cost him the fifth game. Rosol hit a forehand winner on his Yuki?s serve at 30-30 to earn first breakpoint of the match and the Indian youngster buried his forehand on the net on that point to hand the rival team the lead. Rosol kept serving big and consolidated the lead with a solid hold yet again. The unforced errors continued to flow from Yukis racquet as he smashed one overhead volley long to be down by another breakpoint and double faulted on the next point to hand Rosol a comfortable 5-2 cushion. Exactly 24 minutes into the match, Rosol was serving for the set and he sealed it with a backhand winner. It was one-way traffic in the second set as Rosol pounded Yuki, who managed to get on board only once. With two consecutive breaks and two easy holds, Rosol rushed to a 4-0 lead and with one more break to secure the set. Yuki played little better in the third set, managing to get his first break of the match when Rosol hit a forehand long. However, he let go of the advantage by dropping serve in the sixth. Having Rosol down 0-40 was the best chance for Yuki to put pressure and get a break but he squandered all chances. Serving to stay in the match, he buried a backhand into the net to give the Czech two match points. Rosol was quick to convert the first match point after Yuki hit a forehand on the net.
