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.
