Re: Radek Stepanek

6-3 6-2 6-1

A complete thrashing Shame that this was on court #7 and all the channels were showing some disgusting WTA tennis I hope the next match will be broadcasted, Ferrer or Hewitt stand in Rado's way to QF

Re: Radek Stepanek

I love this result as it is revenge from Hamburg, Radek has killed Boredo twice this year.

No dobt IMO Radek can win his next match with the level he is currently at.

Re: Radek Stepanek

Radek lost in 5 sets, again

Last 2 sets were really frustrating to watch except the comeback in final set, when Radek fought back from 2 breaks down, 0-4* to *3-4. Where the f*ck was his serve? He looked like Coria, couldn't hit a 1st serve and was making double faults at the worst moments. Apart from the serve, he played really well and surprisingly spent most time rallying at the baseline, hitting some beautiful winners. He will be #16 next week and has almost nothing to defend in the upcoming 4 weeks.

I'm really mad cause this was Radek's best chance to reach GS semis and he could have won this in 4, if the serve was working.

Re: Radek Stepanek

Why doesn't Radek have his own forum on MTF? He's way too good to have only one thread about him.

What a shame... but we are used to it unfortunately.

MTF only gives forums to pampered brats/cheaters/cute players with lot of fangirls.

Can't we rally to get him a forum? I'm sure Radek has more fans here. I just recently became a fan after watching him play awesome aggressive tennis at RG so I'm positive others will too if they just look past his looks. For god's sake, even Srichaphan has a forum and he isn't even playing!

We could try, but it's a slow process and it's on voting, so we'd need a lot of people in this too.

Re: Radek Stepanek

To be honest I've never felt any need for player forum. I don't have any problem with the fact that there is only 1 thread. Although if there was a poll, I would vote for it.

Maybe the only thing I would like to do is to change the thread title from time to time, like "Sexy time at RG" Maybe me and/or Gustavo could become mods of the thread, if there is such a thing?

Re: Radek Stepanek

Yep, I agree. Maybe a joint thread ownage? I think also that you deserve it more than me Tom, after all you're the Czech here, but if you want someone with more time in MTF lately, then I won't run from that honour.

Rado's road to Wimbledon SF has just started.

Re: Radek Stepanek

Well the best thing would be if we both could moderate this thread, but I don't know if it's possible. The fact that I'm Czech doesn't give me any special privilege I am not a fan of many Czech players, so I think I would still be Radek's fan even if I wasn't Czech. And as you said, you probably spend a bit more time here (although I'm slowly becoming an addict too)

Thanks

Those photos with Sharapova created some fuss on WTAWorld.
