Stepanek Undergoes Neck Surgery

PLAYER NEWS 2013
STEPANEK UNDERGOES NECK SURGERY
Monte-Carlo, Monaco
by ATP Staff | 30.01.2013

Radek Stepanek reached the Australian Open third round (l. to Djokovic) earlier this month.
Former World No. 8 Radek Stepanek underwent surgery for a neck injury on 21 January and is expected to return to the ATP World Tour later next month.

“A neck disc was pressing on a nerve and was creating a big problem in my neck and right hand,” Stepanek told ATPWorldTour.com. “I had no feeling on it and no power.”

The 34-year-old Czech admitted that it got worse at the Apia International Sydney, where he retired with a neck injury, prior to his second round match against Julien Benneteau on 9 January.

“After the Australian Open, I returned home in a lot of pain,” said Stepanek. “I basically had no option than have surgery at that stage. The operation went well and I will now take off a few weeks to recover and hopefully I will be back soon with not such a painful problem anymore.”

Stepanek lost in the Australian Open third round to Novak Djokovic. With Leander Paes, as defending doubles champions, the duo lost in the doubles first round (l. to Anderson-Erlich).

“I have a, shall we say, morbid personality.”
― Novala Takemoto, Missin' (Novel)

Hope he'll be ok.

Stepaneck

Fakervic played at 150% against Federer as usual.


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.

Federer will win another grand slam.

Re: Stepanek Undergoes Neck Surgery

He's gone down on every WTA player and half the female population of earth, of course he needs neck surgery. I hope Viadisova is paying for it

I knew it. He would've beaten Djokovic if it wasn't for this injury.
