Enjoy your retirement Jiri Novak
Jiri Novak has played his last main level ATP event losing to David Ferrer in Basel.
Jiri won 7 singles titles and 18 doubles titles. He came as an alternate in the TMC in Shanghai and won a match and best Slam performance was the AO SF in 2002 losing to Thomas Johansson.
SINGLES CAREER TITLES (7):
2002--Madrid TMS, Vienna
He will play one more time in Prostejov, but the smiling and cheery Jiri will now drink beer, get fat and stay around with his family.
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".
Machado wins 6-2 6-1
I definitely would have preferred Gaba winning as he needs the points much more, but Jan would have beaten him anyway. I expect Hajek to destroy Machado, like 6-1 6-2.
