Shanghai R3: Stepanek def. Isner 6-4 6-7(5) 6-3

Too sexy from Stepanek. Been a while since he has been in a TMS quarter final.

Funny incident with Layhani saying Stepanek challenged on a miss hit, when he hadn't and it ended up being quite a farcical situation. Even on his worst day Mo is still better than Norm Chryst.

30 all on Steps serve for the match, 40 shot rally and hits a dropshot winner too good.

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".

Shanghai R3 : Stepanek def. Isner 6-4 6-7 (5) 6-3

Just like how i predicted yesterday.

Well done Steps. When he's on, he's just so enjoyable to watch. Pure shotmaking and delicious net skills.

Isner was far from his best, but it was still a nice match with no vultures or pushers around.

Shanghai R3: Radek Stepanek takes out [8]John Isner 6-4 6-7(5) 6-3

Too sexy for the servebot.

2nd consecutive top 15 win for Steps, coming from a 4 match losing streak.

Some serious pushing from both guys at 30 all in the last game.

Roger Federer | Benoît Paire| Stanislas Wawrinka | Nick Kyrgios

Layhani was correct on that one

Stepanek had a higher % won on his 2nd serve than Isner on his 1st.

The Worm king has 100x more technique than Isner. Actually Stepanek made Isner look like a kid with worms inside his stomach.

Stepanek was good, a little choking at the 2nd set TB though but Isner only has serve over him.

19-15
Federer & Djokovic
SUPERIOR.

Nothing against Isner, but an old school player like Stepanek getting to a TMS Quarters is great for the game. Some of the younger generation need to watch his volleying style. Then beat it into their heads that volleying and variety can win them matches

I used to be your everyday average Joe. Then one day some guy told me I can do whatever I set my heart on. So I tried to fly, and failed. He then told me that there are limitations in life and that I should be more modest in my aspirations. So I robbed a convenience store and got arrested. He then told me not to take everything people say literally, and to use my own initiative. So I became a Trump supporter, and am politely asking you to leave my country.

Yup, from the comments it seems Steps challenged, then switched to "who, me?"

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Slade should be happy with this result. Glad Steps managed to pull through and eliminate the hopeless Isner. I'm saying hopeless, because he didn't have any efficient weapon to show in this match. Apart from his regular serve that is.
