WWW DC F 1st Rubber: Stepanek vs. Ferrer?

Ferrer is most vulnerable on fast surfaces what Prague's indoor court probably is. On the other hand, Stepanek can still be dangerous on fast surfaces. Still I think Ferrer is in too good form for Radek to beat.

Ferrer to win in three, or at most in four, sets.

Re: WWW DC F 1st Rubber: Stepanek vs. Ferrer?

should be a dramatic match.

so is the court proper fast or what? i've been reading the other dc thread and no confirmed info on the quickness. the faster it is, more chances for steps.

Surface: Hard (Novacrylic Ultracushion®), Indoor
Ball: Head ATP

Stepanek is a horrible mug whose retirement can't come soon enough. That said, he should still beat Ferrer on this surface easily.

Stepanek in 3.

ITF did not tell us exactly the court speed. They say 40-45 (max is 50). Anyway Ferrer in 4.

You won't hear me say this often but Ferrer to save tennis. I really hoped Radick would retire after this season

Spare a thought for those people, namely the Czech supporters, who will actually have to suffer through this match live on Friday on the arena.
