Rosol  saved a triple mini-match point at 5-all in the 2nd set (he saved break points in three different games in that set). In the 3rd set he trailed *4:5 (0/30), then saved two match points (Janowicz’s forehand errors) to finish the final with an ace. Janowicz  has lost three matches this year squandering match points… He was bidding to become the first Pole to win a main-level tournament since 1982 (Wojtek Fibak in Chicago). Rosol’s second title behind Bucharest ’13. “I just focused on my games, especially while I was serving,” said Rosol. “I waited patiently to see if he would give me a chance on his serve, and he did. I didn’t start out well, but I finished strong.” They face each other on the same court one year later in the second round & Janowicz wins 6-3, 6-2.
Rosol’s route to the title:
2 Ryan Harrison 3-6, 2-1 ret.
3 Pablo Andujar 1-6, 6-2, 6-2
Q John Isner w/o
S Yen-Hsun Lu 7-5, 4-6, 6-4
W Jerzy Janowicz 3-6, 7-6(3), 7-5 – 2 m.p.
