I think Stepanek should retire right now, you simply CAN NOT lose 62 64 against Fognini.

Let's expect another first-turn defeat at the US Open. If Stepanek goes, I hope not.

Nice played by Fognini. I've been a fan since the French Open and the match he had against Monfils. Happy to see him doing well here!

Too bad for Sexy but I hope Fog can have a good run here. People forget he is young (probably cause he looks old :lol:) and could be the best Italian player ever.

Anything is possible for that Fabulous Fognini :angel: Yeah the chances are nonexistent but who knows what will happen in the post-Fedal era :drink:

yea.

Panatta has been ranked #4, he beat Borg two times at the RG, won the 1976 one. I am not seriously able to think of a slam-winning Fognini. at least he could win one or two rounds, not more. he's just a little Koellerer :D

Same here

I thought Stepanek would win this though...

My sentiments exactly :)

Radek should aim to (no pun intended) step it up in the upcoming tournaments or else the pressure from his critics and detractors may just force him into an earlier retirement.

I think before he retires earlier he should focus on doubles I think. You know he reached the Washington finals with Berdych last week.

Yes, I hope so too. He'll need to find a good permanent partner though - Berdych would be great but I'm not sure how committed he will be to doubles.
