Re: Jan Hajek

Jan withdrew from Biella, will he be alright for Casablanca? He only needs a few points more to basically clinch a position in RG, so hopefully this week off helps with any niggles.

Re: Jan Hajek

Jan needs some wins. He'll be playing somewhere next week, have to wait for SE spots to be cleared. Hope for a good week.

the Ostrava challenger is next week and the Prague challenger is the week after that so he will probably play them. He usually plays better in his home country so he may pick up some points here.

I will be going to the Prague challenger, lets hope he does not draw Fernando Gonzalez in the 1st round!

Re: Jan Hajek

Oh, he's applying for a WC into Ostrava? Good decision, he should be able to win matches in that event. He definitely plays good in his home country events so I expect and he needs good performances.

Re: Jan Hajek

he is not in the draw
I can't think of a good reason why he should not enter it. He must be playing in either Estoril, Serbia or Munich instead.

Re: Jan Hajek

Yes, he's in Munich. He's defending QF points so he's gonna be a little farther from top 100 if he loses R1 again. Needs to try to win at least one match.

Re: Jan Hajek

AJ, or anyone else, do you know what physical issues Jan has been dealing with this year? Unfortunately it's affected his results. Hopefully he can start putting together better performances.

Re: Jan Hajek

Had an achilles problem towards the end of last year, then there are the other issues he has with the health.

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".

Only cause they had no one else.

Re: Jan Hajek

he may have lost his davis cup matches but i thought he played well, unfortunately for him so did his opponents, and they were tough defeats to take mentally as the matches were close.

Re: Jan Hajek

From one of the other Czech guys said Hajek withdrew against Minar cause of a back problem which he had treatment in the DC matches.

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".

Re: Jan Hajek

He's had back problems a lot. Too bad he's so fragile physically, he's never really gotten an opportunity to play a full ATP season without having a physical issue. His focus needs to be on Prostejov and he's not playing next week so that should help the back a bit.

Re: Jan Hajek

Jan plays Tsonga in R1 of the French. A win would be nice but that is unlikely. Hopefully this little break he has taken has helped him recover from his assortment of injuries and he can start playing decent tennis this season.
