Re: FLASHBACK: Australian Open (2002)

Koubek reaching the quarters was a huge shocker as well. He was a very solid clay court player but I never thought he'd come close to a QF in any of the other slams but the draw opened up in this one and he took advantage.

Jiri was a very good player BTW, excellent backhand and good counter-punching skills. This was a slam that suited him better than RG cause the field was so packed with dirtballing expertise at the time.
