While in the Design tab in Crystal, click on the X-Axis label.  The label should be highlighted by little black boxes not just the whole chart.  
Right Click and select Chart Options then select Selected Item...
There is a drop down labelled Rotation, change this value to 90.

Go to the screen where you design the Crystal Report in visual studio.  From there you should be able to select the graph label and proceed as I said above.

You cann't do that in visual studio. When you click on the chart design screen the whole stuff is selected. You cann't just select the x axis lable alone

Sorry, I was thinking of Crystal 9.  I do not believe you can do what you want to do in the Visual Studio version.
