Re: Wimbledon '04

Well, Stepanek is not the easiest opponent on any surface but we have to pray that Alex gets thru his 1st rd -- he desperately needs to win a match on grass! I just watched him beat Sampras in DC Houston -- what a smart player Alex is!! So cool!

Re: Wimbledon '04

Stepanek is tricky and he will hit plenty of drop volleys and will be serving and volleying lot, if Alex remains calm and not serve poorly, then he has a chance.

Re: Wimbledon '04

@trolls,roger.......

lol,a heavy opponent,stepanek!?!?

When he dont beat him,than he dont beat a man like federer or Roddick on grass.....

Every match is hard,but i think its great that he plays "only" stepanek

Re: Wimbledon '04

if he will win and play the second round it will probably against Moyá
and than Safin, Hewitt
it's a dificult draw for Alex
but a first round win would be good anyway
