Lukas Rosol wins at Mercedes Cup
STUTTGART, Germany -- Big-serving Lukas Rosol, who stunned Rafael Nadal at Wimbledon, beat fifth-seeded Robin Haase of the Netherlands 6-4, 7-5 on Tuesday to advance to the second round of the Mercedes Cup.
Rosol beat the Spanish star in the second round at the All England Club earlier this month, but despite that win, the Czech actually dropped three places to No. 103 in the ATP rankings.
