The battle of the heavy forehands: Ljubicic-Stepanek

Those two have two of the most heavy forehands on tour, Sergi Bruguera back in his day would love to have such a forehand, but well, he did not.

Stepanek leads the head to head 1-0 but his win was on carpet, interestingly enogh they can both play on clay.

This is a tough match to predict, I hope Ivan wins but he might get frustrated from Stepanek. I will go with Ljubicic in 3.

Hmm I don't like either of these players, but that's beside the point.

Radek in two tight sets. 7-5 7-6(4) or something.
