Entertaining third set

Nando's fist pumps He didn't use it last season, I suppose it's a mutated form of Nadal's gesture

That was a very entertaining match and dramatic too. I only watched the last two sets because that was what was televised, but Stepanek was completely toying with Verdasco. Dropshots and lobs, slices and good volleying too. It was the best match that he's played this week. Verdasco looked totally confused as to what to do, and was mainly reacting to Stepanek's play.

Stepanek got tight at the end, where his dropshots started sitting up more, but with a double break lead he was able to still finish it off.

I think he went pretty overboard with them, really. Also deliberately slowing things down in Stepanek's last service game. Bit of gamesmanship. I guess we he won't get as much flak as Stepanek though given that he's nice looking.

Stepanek is a tennis-lover's tennis player. Great touch, intelligence...a very entertaining classic player.

Damn, entertaining match but stinky result. Again Stepanek beats a cute and talented youngster from a set down.

I was confused about Nando's huge fist pumps and celebrations in the 3rd set. I saw it as mocking the clownish Stepanek, but whatever he needed to do to get pumped. Perhaps he's taking a page from the successful Nadal - or, even from the girlfriend Ana Ivanovic, another player known for constant self-support during matches.
