Ups and downs all the time. Exellent, exiting match. Losing 4th Stepanek managed to cameback from 4-0 (Ferrer served for 5-0). What a recover game from Stepanek!!!

Well, congrats to Ferrer.

Stepanek looked dead tired at the start of the 5th but he made a great comeback from 4-0 to 4-3 but then 2DFs in a row made him lose his rhythm

C'mon, Radek, WTF was that? You make all the comeback from 0:4*, it's 3*:4, 15/0 and all the momentum in the world. And then those 2 DF!!! Aaaaaaaaargh... :(

Rogiman
06-02-2008, 08:15 PM
In a best of 3 format Pics would have lost the last couple of matches, which means he's transformed into a GS gladiator, making the QF for the 3rd GS in a row, with a great chance to make the SF for the 2nd time, seeing as he's facing a complete retard in his QF match :retard:

I thought that was going to be a lot easier for him though.

Great match. Both players up and down so much you really did not know who would win in end. Much like the Hewitt match.

Good luck in the 1/4 finals. Beat Monfils and make the semis!!!!

MrChopin
06-02-2008, 08:31 PM
Neither 5 set match was exceedingly long (3.5 hours against Hewitt being the longest), so Ferrer should still have plenty in the tank, certainly enough to run over Monfils. If he does that, he kicks Tanko back down to #5.:woohoo:

Fun match to watch. The celebrations as Stepanek fired his way back into the fifth were hilarious.

Tennis wise Ferrer was far from his best which we saw at the TMC this year but still good enough. Stepanek showed he has game but on this surface over five sets he isn't good enough really to be beating the likes of Ferrer though he did well to make Ferrer worry.

I say this is good news for Fed. Radek is very dangerous when he's on. At least you know what you're getting with Ferrer, and I don't think he can beat Roger in the semis.

2nd straight 5 setter. he is also toast now. unless he can beat Monfils in straight sets, he might as well book his seat home.

Fed has to be celebrating. all that celebration ends in the final when he meets his maker.

Looks like I´ve found a bug in MTF :lol:

I agreed the match was funny but I disagree with the rest, Stepanek´s antics were his usual jerk self stuff which I find it disrespectful towards his rival (ask them about it if you have the chance, you´ll see), I think Ferrer played pretty well, and so did Stepanek, who showed he can be a threat when he´s in shape (as he is now) to anyone on clay

If it is being offensive to the other player do you think that's how it is intended? I always get the impression that Stepanek could be mature on court but simply enjoys making it a battle. Obviously he is a serious competitor and determined but I also think there is an element of perspective with him and tennis; I think he realises it's not his life forever and wants to have fun on court.

Nice one Radek. All that fight to get back on serve in the fifth and that's how you handle it? Really great job.

This has to be the most disappointing result of the tournament for me. Nothing against Ferrer, I just wanted Radek in the semis and that was obviously, very doable.

Good luck in the next round David!

Same with me. Double Radek's first serve percentage in the final set and I believe he would be the winner.

(On the other hand, it was good to see him make 4th round, his best result at RG)
