I don't think so, he's had a good year in doubles. I think he'll play yet some years, maybe concentrating even more in doubles.

Re: 2012 DC Final CZE - ESP

Would love for CZ to clinch the FedCup/DavisCup double this year. Last country to achieve this was the US in 1990, but it's a huge country with 300M+ people so this would be much more impressive.

The Davis Cup will be more difficult to win, no doubt, but the home crowd is definitely an advantage for CZ. Both finals will be probably held in the 15,000 Prague arena.

I also think people are underestimating Stepanek. He held matchpoints against Tipsarevic during the CZ-Serbia QF so saying that with Djokovic Serbia would have surely won is nonsense. Not to mention Berdych's MP against Djoker in the 2011 ATP Tour Finals. These matches could have gone either way.

May the better team win.

He said that his hero is Czech ice-hockey player Jaromir Jagr, who is 40 and is stil playing the NHL at top level. Last year (at 39 yrs old) he was voted the best forward of the world ice-hockey championships.

Expect Stepanek to play singles until 40 and the doubles well into his fifties

Did they end up moving the other event which clashes with the DC final? Prague is like a library compared to Ostrava when it comes to crowd noise.

Stepanek the future DC captain.

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".

Wait, what .

Could we please stop putting Federer together with the Dull thing when it comes to carpet? Roger won his first title on that surface FFS, so he doesn't stand to gain from such changes.

But Fed (with Nadal) supported the idea of not having Carpet events on the tour IIRC. I'm not sure about that though.

I think Spain are the faves to win. Can't count on Berdshit to win 2 matches.

Clueless.

It was about preventing injuries. Federer has quite something to gain from that, I reckon. He had just as much say in it as Rafa, what's the big deal? You don't always have to agree with the guy just because he's your god

Slowdownerer and Dull argued argued for the end of carpet at Paris amoung other tourneys, disgusting two faced vultures claimed that it was dangerous

of course the long term health effects of playing 9 months of the year on concrete are no yet kno...........oh wait
