Rome R1 : Stepanek def. Chela 2-6 6-0 6-3

Too sexy.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Rome R1: Stepanek def. Chela 2-6 6-0 6-3

Stepanek played a lot better after he was able to recover from getting dirt in his eyes early in the match, which affected him through the first set. Wasn't a whole lot he had to do than play his normal game, and Chela had no answers. Chela looks in zero condition to defend his RG points and looks basically like trash on the court physically.

Radek played pretty decently in the final two sets, too many forehand errors, but he started returning better and using the net more. Good to see him get the win here.

This Match up was bad in any kind of way. Both should lose here!

Chela ranked #36 atm is a joke, I think ATP has forgotten a "1" in front of the numbers.

Worst match of the year. Chela should retire, he's so out of shape, Stepanek was very mediocre but he still was easily controlling the match, i don't think i've seen anyone played worse this year than Chela today

Well Chela was donating BPO's, of course Radek would probably take advantage, still another match with too many errors today, I guess it might have alot to do with conditions.

Chela 1-7 his last seven events.

No, I don't see him retiring anytime soon unless he's forced into it. He isn't healthy right now. He'll probably manage a SF or two in the small clay court tournaments after Wimbledon. He also consistently plays better in slams, so expect a win at the French at least, and a win in New York as well.

Re: Rome R1 : Stepanek def. Chela 2-6 6-0 6-3

As a hard core JIC fan I expect him to retire at the end of the year if he doesn't win any decent matches.

He has a quarterfinal of Roland Garros to defend. He will go out of top 70 or worse if he loses early.

Difficult times coming up for J.I.C, that's for sure.
An Umag semifinal would help him a lot.

Haha, I texted a friend during the match, telling him Chela would struggle against many players ranked around 137.

Re: Rome R1 : Stepanek def. Chela 2-6 6-0 6-3

Chela hasn't been losing to bad players. Off the top of my head, I know he's played Dolgo, Dimitrov, Verdasco recently, Falla on a court that suits his game last week. And he's been competitive in the matches. And I just remember he played Istomin in Indian Wells. He's playing decent players and hasn't been able to defeat them.
