Papakori
09-07-2005, 05:14 PM
hi :wavey:

I read somewhere he had a very good looking one but I can't find any pictures or name :confused:

Radek is also a lot better looking in real life I think :lol: The pictures aren't very good of him

Radek STEPANEK (CZE) vs Tim HENMAN (GBR)

Come on Radek! :bounce:

Radeklover
11-01-2005, 02:13 PM
Hey people!
I'm 'new' around here (well, not really, have been lurking for quite a long time :P) and fiiinally found the Radek thread! Doesn't seem like there are lots of fans around here, so I'll give the Radek talking a try and hopefully some others will join me? :)

So, maybe it'll be a good idea to introduce ourselves a bit. (I sincerely hope I'm not talking against nobody here..) I'm a huge Radek fan, mostly because of his very cute attitude, and even though his looks aren't exactly droolworthy, his inner person compromises a lot! I also like Igor Andreev, Fernando Verdasco, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Andy Roddick, Richard Gasquet and Marco Chiudinelli, among others.

Anyone here? *waves*

Radeklover
11-01-2005, 02:50 PM
He's playing the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris at the moment, Radek is seeded 8 and this is his quarter of the draw:

(8) STEPANEK, Radek CZE/Bye
LOPEZ, Feliciano ESP v. MALISSE, Xavier BEL
SANGUINETTI, Davide ITA v. MATHIEU, Paul-Henri FRA
Bye/(11) GONZALEZ, Fernando CHI
(15) ANCIC, Mario CRO/Bye
(Q) TURSUNOV, Dmitry RUS v. SPADEA, Vincent USA
RUSEDSKI, Greg GBR v. (Q) SEPPI, Andreas ITA
Bye/(3) DAVYDENKO, Nikolay RUS

So, he got a bye in the first round, and is playing Feliciano Lopez tonight, his match is the last on court no. 1.

GOOD LUCK RADEK! Please win your first title anytime soon, k?

Papakori
11-01-2005, 04:29 PM
hey Radek lover!

I was at Paris yesterday and met him!

Good luck against Lopez!

Radeklover
11-01-2005, 06:06 PM
You met him?!?!?! That's so cool! Tell more, tell more! :angel:

Yay, I'm not alone in this thread ;). Gambillfan, I saw you were the one who started this thread, are you a fan? For how long have you followed Radek? :)

Radeklover
11-01-2005, 06:07 PM
Thought I had to throw another picture of Radek in this thread, seeing as there aren't much of them in here :)

I got this photo from a friend of mine, she isn't a real fan, but met him and took this foto for me!

Papakori
11-01-2005, 07:03 PM
well he was just doing a signing session so I met him through there, there isn't much more to say!

Yep, I am a Radek fan and I think I have started following him since Milan this year and you?

Nice picture!

Papakori
11-02-2005, 11:53 AM
he won 7-5 6-2 to set up a meeting with either Mr. Mathieu or Mr. Gonzalez :yippee:

Either one will be tough :sad:

Radeklover
11-02-2005, 06:16 PM
I've started to follow him since.. Uh, difficult to say :p. I think it was during Wimbledon 2004, I saw his second round match. Carlos Moya beat him, I felt sorry for Radek, and started to follow his results after that match. :)

Well done, Radek! Pretty convincing score, too! Paulo just won the first set, so he might be Radek's next opponent..

Papakori
11-02-2005, 06:59 PM
:)

So are you going to any tournaments next year in hope of seeing Radek?

Radeklover
11-03-2005, 03:55 PM
Hopefully! But I'm not sure yet.. Don't think I'll have lots of time to go on tennis trips next year, and money is another issue. Oh well, I'll see :) Are you planning to visit more of the Paris tournament / another tournament?

Radek's match is about to start! Come on, you can beat Paulo.. :dance:

Papakori
11-03-2005, 04:09 PM
i Still don't know yet unfortunately. Hopefully RG

Radeklover
11-03-2005, 04:29 PM
Roland Garros! Oh wow, that's so cool. I really want to visit a grandslam, one day. :p Even though smaller tournaments are better for talking etc. with the players..

Mm, when is the match going to start? *getting impatient*

Papakori
11-03-2005, 08:03 PM
yeh, I wanted to go to the last one this year but it didn't work out so I went to the WTA Strasbourg instead.

I think I prefer smaller tournaments but there are no smaller ones locally

Papakori
11-03-2005, 08:03 PM
ooh Radek won 7-5 6-4 or something :yippee:

Radeklover
11-03-2005, 09:09 PM
Woot, well done Radek! He now has to play Nikolay Davydenko, ouch. Tough opponent.. I think their match is tomorrow, so come on Radek! You can beat him, if you want to ;)

Mmm, there aren't many people around here eh? Radek doesn't have a lot of fans.. I wonder why nobody pays attention to him, his game isn't that boring. But lots of people snap off because of his looks, I guess. Sad.

Papakori
11-04-2005, 06:50 AM
Hello Hairouna!

So what aspect would you like to know of his game? Maybe Radeklover can help out

Radeklover
11-04-2005, 05:57 PM
Hi Hairouna! What do you want to know about Radek? I don't know that much, since there is very few info about him. Hardly any interviews or so.

YAY! Radek beat Davydenko in straight sets, 7-5 6-4! He's playing either Gaudio or Berdych in the semis..

Lenka
11-04-2005, 09:00 PM

MissMoJo
11-04-2005, 09:05 PM
hi guys :D what's his best surface? ( i think it might be indoor because i really only noticed him when he played marat in paris last year), is he a s/v guy? baseliner? his best stroke? I think i've only seen him on t.v once for a full match because tennis here is mostly americans, when we do get coverage, and the top guys. congrats on radek's win today :yeah:

Papakori
11-04-2005, 09:52 PM
Yeah I think his best surface is indoor cos he is getting his best results there!

As for S/V, Baseliner from the few matches I have seen he does come forward a bit but I am not too sure :confused:

Papakori
11-05-2005, 02:41 PM
OOh the match has started against Berdych!

Good luck Radek!

There are some nice pictures on gettyimages by the way~~!

Papakori
11-05-2005, 02:42 PM
He's been broken! Berdych leads 3-1

Papakori
11-05-2005, 03:05 PM
He lost the first set 1-6 but now leads 3-0 :D

Hopefully Radek will finally be able to win his first title next year!

12-14-2005, 06:54 PM
No offence but how can you think stepanek is sexy? are u kidding me????!! He is perhaps the worst looking tennis player i have ever seen!, which doesnt matter because he is a really good tennis player:)

Radeklover
01-17-2006, 12:15 PM
janhernych44, one: no one here ever said Radek is sexy, and two, have you ever seen him in real life or are you only basing your opinion on photos? He's not photogenic, but in real life he's quite cute and a really nice person on top of that. And, he's an awesome player.

Well, it has been quiet here for quite a while, and meanwhile Radek played two tournaments! He reached the semis in Chennai, India, where he lost to Carlos Moya, and lost in the first round of Sydney the week after..

His quarter of the draw for the Australian Open:
[7] LJUBICIC, Ivan CRO v. (W) GUCCIONE, Chris AUS
DLOUHY, Lukas CZE v. KOHLSCHREIBER, Philipp GER
MELLO, Ricardo BRA v. MULLER, Gilles LUX
BEHREND, Tomas GER v. [31] LOPEZ, Feliciano ESP
[19] BERDYCH, Tomas CZE v. REYNOLDS, Bobby USA
(Q) SIMON, Gilles FRA v. MASSU, Nicolas CHI
MALISSE, Xavier BEL v. YOUZHNY, Mikhail RUS
SAULNIER, Cyril FRA v. [10] JOHANSSON, Thomas SWE
[13] GINEPRI, Robby USA v. MELZER, Jurgen AUT
BJORKMAN, Jonas SWE v. (Q) GREMELMAYR, Denis GER
GIMELSTOB, Justin USA v. BAGHDATIS, Marcos CYP
(Q) REHNQUIST, Bjorn SWE v. [17] STEPANEK, Radek CZE
[27] DENT, Taylor USA v. GARCIA-LOPEZ, Guillermo ESP
DANIEL, Marcos BRA v. (Q) BENNETEAU, Julien FRA
MOODIE, Wesley RSA v. HERNANDEZ, Oscar ESP
(Q) LAMMER, Michael SUI v. [2] RODDICK, Andy USA

Radek already won his first round match vs Bjorn Rehnquist 6-1, 6-2, 6-2! Now he's facing Marcos Baghdatis tomorrow, quite a tough one I think..

Go Radek! :bounce:

Papakori
01-18-2006, 07:44 PM

But I read today on a French website that he's fine now, he isn't injured anymore and he will play in Adelaide. That's what Navratil (DC captain) said.
He also confirms Radek is probably going to play against the US.

ESPN chat
Moderator: (9:49 AM ET ) Hello, Radek Stepanek will be with us in a momentarily, at the top of the hour. Send in your questions and chat with Radek!

Radek Stepanek: (9:57 AM ET ) Hello this Is Radek and welcoming everyone to the chat. Let's get this going...

Anna W. (NYC): You've such a cool style on court. Are you the one choosing your outfits?

Radek Stepanek: (9:58 AM ET ) my outifts i choose myselft. the company that does the line, so I choose my outfits myslef.

Peter, Melbourne, Victoria: Hi Radek, Congratulations on your win last week against James in the final. How do you think you will go in the US Open series?

Radek Stepanek: (10:00 AM ET ) Definiteoly give me a lot of confidence for future tournamets. but it is just the first week on such a long tour and I will do everything I can to finish high on the US Open Series. This is a huge step forward for me.

Wayne (Pinedale,WY): With you coming back from injury and winning LA on Sunday, how do you feel and are you going to play in Washington before the Masters Series in Montreal and Cincinnati?

Radek Stepanek: (10:01 AM ET ) Washington is different because it is hot and humid and more demanding physically. Im in Florida training to get ready and Im looking forward to Washington.

Ian honolulu, HI: Hi, people in the tennis world always thought you were a doubles specialist, are you going to stop playing doubles and start concentrating on singles or still do both?

Radek Stepanek: (10:02 AM ET ) Ive played doubles the last six months becuase I missed six months and i neeeded some extra matches. Most remember me as a doubles player because I started my career as a doubles player. I would like to change and focus on singles more now.

Scott (Hamilton New Jersey): It's great to see you playing again at your level. I have one question, how did it feel to do the "worm" like that on center court?

Radek Stepanek: (10:04 AM ET ) it feels great. I did it when I won my first tiele in Holland last year and this was my second title. It feels such great in front of such a supportive crowd in LA.

Rebecca, Durham: Do you have any rituals that you practice before a match, like eat the same food, wear the same shirt?

Radek Stepanek: (10:05 AM ET ) Yes, I am superstitious. When I keep winning I keep doing the same thing. In LA I went to the same sushi restaurant and had the same breakfast and I will wear the same style of shirt. You can say Im superstitious, yes.

Fernando (Cleveland): What is your goal for the U.S. Open?

Radek Stepanek: (10:06 AM ET ) The biggest goal is to stay healthy the whole summer and play all the tournaments. We still have five weeks before the Open but I would like to continue to play at this level and see where that can take me at the Open.

Dan (New Hampshire): How much longer do you plan on playing?

Radek Stepanek: (10:07 AM ET ) I would like to play as long as my body is fit. I started later so my body isnt overused. I love the game and competition and as long as my body is willing I will play as long as I can and as long as I have the game to compete.

Mark, Virginia: In your opinion, do you think Rafael Nadal will overtake Roger Federer as the No. 1 player in the world by the end of NEXT season?

Radek Stepanek: (10:09 AM ET ) Very tough question. From the last month my feeling is that Nadal is closing on Roger. They had a very tough battle at Wimbledon where Roger is unbeatable and Nadal pushed him to the limit. If it is going to happen this year or next it's hard to say but Nadal is getting closer.

Paskewich, SD: Do you think you can get back into the Top 10 in the world?

Radek Stepanek: (10:10 AM ET ) Once Ive been there so I have the ability, but after such injury it takes time, patience and hard work. If I didnt believe that there would be no reason for me to play. I know what I am capable but I just need to be patient and do some hard work.

Grant (Toronto): How difficult has it been to come back from the dislocated disk in your neck?

Radek Stepanek: (10:12 AM ET ) For me it was very tough because the neck injury took all my feel, touch and power from my right hand. I didnt know if I was able to play again. My doctor helped me to find a way back. It was tough but I am happy im back. It took me six months to get back and I need to play a lot of matches and slowly feeling my body is getting back to where it was before but I still need some time to get back to 100 percent.

ray, denver, co: How did you hurt your neck? Are you back to 100%?

Radek Stepanek: (10:13 AM ET ) I was standing still, waiting for practice when I felt somebody put a knife in my neck. It came out of nowhere. Ten days later I woke up and I couldnt feel my right hand and your muscles started to atrophy because there was no life in my right hand, especially my fingers.

Eli Samaha : Did you read Blake's book before your match to gain some pointers about his weaknesses? Did you use any of it against him in the final (like how he broke his neck; how did you use that to your advantage)?

Radek Stepanek: (10:14 AM ET ) No I didnt but like a lot of players I will buy it because I know what he went through with his neck injury and know he went through.

Radek Stepanek: (10:15 AM ET ) I have my doubles parnter and several Czech players. The tour is one big traveling family and we seem to get along very well.

Abid, Vancouver BC: What is your favorite tournament to play?

Radek Stepanek: (10:16 AM ET ) Rotterdam and LA, where I won my two titles! The Slams, everyone looks up to them. Playing in Miami is great as is Viena.

Katya (Moscow): If you could have any other's player best shot, what would it be?

Radek Stepanek: (10:17 AM ET ) I would take Pete Sampras' serve because he was able to get out of trouble with his serve and it made his life on the court much easier.

Djole: If you were not a tennis player, what would you be?

Radek Stepanek: (10:18 AM ET ) Tough question because I am happy what I am doing, but when I was younger I wanted to be a hockey goalkeeper.

Carlos: What do you think about the players who are still playing on clay in Europe during the US Open Series?

Radek Stepanek: (10:20 AM ET ) Every player has his own favorite surface. For me I can play on all surfaces, so for me it doesnt matter. Players who like to play on clay, I think that is why they are staying in Europe and they want to use the time to play on their favorite surface, which is understandable.

Inge, Austria: What are your best memories off and on the court?

Radek Stepanek: (10:21 AM ET ) We had a funny story in Rotterdam when a naked guy ran on the court during the trophy presentation. In every tournament you have so many stories. In LA, I met Wayne Gretzky and that was an amazing five minutes with him. Those are the things I will remember for a long time.

Abid, Vancouver BC: Being on the road, and having such a busy schedule, how hard is it to spend time with Martina?

Radek Stepanek: (10:23 AM ET ) When two players have a relationship, everyone has to be preofessional.We try to spend much time together and doing well and are in tournaments together. We make the best of our time together. It's a differnet life than usual because people go to their jobs and come home in the evening. Our job is different and that is just what it takes.

Abid, Vancouver BC: Who's your favorite goal tender in hockey? Is it Hasek ?

Radek Stepanek: (10:24 AM ET ) Definitely it's Hasek. And my favorite player is Jaromir Jagr, who was with me at WImbledon and at Roland Garrros. We had a great time.

Kenneth: Was Lendl your favourite player when you were a kid?

Radek Stepanek: (10:25 AM ET ) Lendl, definitely. Im luck enough that I met him here in the US and we are good friends. He was the first player who brought a lot of attention to what he did off the court and I have a lot of respect for him.

Radek Stepanek: (10:27 AM ET ) thank you for the time and the questions and all of your support. I hope to see all of you out on the tour. Take care.

Svetlana.

Berdych/Safarova are playing Hopman Cup. I was just saying it would be entertaining if Stepanek/Vaidisova played instead.

MTF is going bananas over Stepanek and Vaidisova's wedding plans. But the Czechs are so quiet about it! Is it true or false :confused:

Czech Radek Stepanek is one of the funniest guys on the ATP Tour; he loves nothing better than to share a laugh, impersonate a fellow player or instigate a practical joke in the locker room. On the court the former World No.8 has become well-known for his signature 'worm' celebration. Below, Radek discusses the last time...

I hired a tennis court?
In December 2005 I paid $1000 to hire a court for a month in Prague to practise during the off-season. I was not at all surprised that I had to pay that amount.

I played a match that no-one watched?
When I was young my parents watched every match I played, so I always had at least one or two spectators! But I don't think I've ever played a match that no one watched.

I didn't have my credential with me and I couldn't get to where I needed to go?
I lose my credential nearly every week and they won't even let me into the stadium, so I have to keep getting a new one made. In the first week of the year in Adelaide I lost the room key to my hotel eight or nine times. But they let me go because they got to know me after the third or fourth time.

I changed the home page on my computer?
I am a computer novice. I'm happy if I can log onto my email account, so whatever home page is on the computer, I leave it. The home page is www.seznam.cz

I spoke with my hero, Ivan Lendl?
I had lunch with him at a Chinese restaurant just before Christmas. I had noodles with seafood and he had a lot of stuff he probably didn't eat during his career. He lives in the next neighborhood to me in Bradenton, Florida. I looked up to him when I was younger and he was the one who brought professionalism to the sport with his conditioning.

I was asked if I was a tennis player?
I had some people on the flight from Los Angeles to Australia ask me what I was doing. And then I met some of the same people in the hotel in Adelaide, so it was quite funny.

I broke a string?
I'm not someone who changes racquets every nine games. I play five sets with the same racquet, so it's not unusual for me to break a string, and it always seems to be the fifth string from the left (on the mains) that breaks. In fact today I broke a string (in a second-round win over Andreas Seppi in Sydney) and I also broke a racquet. I didn't throw or smash my racquet; I just hit a running forehand where the racquet touched the ground.

I visited a country for the first time?
Paraguay three years ago when we went to South America for Davis Cup. The life there is very tough for the people. But we had a good time - we won 5-0.

I played a practical joke in the locker room?
Last year in Barcelona I imitated some players in the locker room. I think they liked it. I also did it in the players' lounge in front of about 40 players, so it was quite funny. I would imitate whoever they told me to do. I also did some imitations with Djokovic in the locker room in Adelaide last year and also in Paris.

I asked someone for their autograph?
I asked my best friend to get the autograph of [NHL star] Jaromir Jágr. He signed his jersey 'To my best friend, Jaromir Jágr 68.' [Jágr wears the number 68 in honor of the Prague Spring rebellion that occurred in Czechoslovakia in 1968, also the year in which his grandfather died while in prison.] I'm thinking of putting it on the wall. I would like to get Bono's autograph. If I could meet him, that would be a dream.

I almost missed a celebrity I wanted to meet?
I met Wayne Gretzky and I think it was the only time in my life when my hand was sweating. But I almost passed him by. I was walking from the locker room to the players' lounge in Los Angeles in July 2007. It can be dark in that tunnel. Right before I turned into the lounge, a guy from the ATP grabbed me and pulled me to the side. Next thing I knew he was introducing me to Wayne Gretzky. He really is "The Great One," and I almost walked right past him! I didn't even know what to say to him.

I had a bad hotel experience?
I played a Challenger tournament in India seven or eight years ago. There was a big hole under my door and when I woke up in the morning I found two or three animals under my bed. That wasn't such a nice experience.

here are some photos from the sap open final vs. roddick this past sunday. radek was one of the nicest guys i've seen and he stuck around to sign EVERYONE's autographs and take pictures and everything whereas roddick signed 2, said "if you put it in my face i won't sign it" and just ran off. radek is really a great guy and as of last sunday he has gained a fan in me.

Safin is nominated for 2 singles matches. I don't think that his nomination is serious though.

Anyway, one more photo of Radek from Moscow. I will be able to watch the matches tomorrow :yeah:

Brilliant performance from Radek! He dominated the match and hardly made errors at the net. If this clown named Berdych didn't lose to Safin (I still hope someone will wake me up), we could have been in comfortable 2-0 lead.

Hopefully Radek keeps his today's form till the end of the weekend.

This will be the end station, but good tournament, Radek :yeah: I thought he could beat Fed in Montreal when Radek was in superb form, but unfortunately that's not the case of this tournament. He was struggling in the Horna match :( Still secretly hoping for an upset ;)

Radek thrashed Simon in RG 1st round and now needs to beat Vanek to get to R3 :yeah:

I saw only part of the 2nd set and he played very well, good to see him keeping his good form of late :yeah:

GlennMirnyi
05-28-2008, 07:28 PM
Rado is the best Czech player.

R3 is a real possibility now.

Break it down!

Tom Paulman
05-29-2008, 07:48 PM
Rado in R3 :worship: Robredo next

Robredo leads H2H 3-0 on clay, 7-0 in sets :scared:

I hope Radek can find a way to beat him and do the worm in his face, he's in form and it would feel good to have the more entertaining player in R4.

GlennMirnyi
05-29-2008, 08:35 PM
Boredo freaking ****.

You know what I find strange? The match-up should be helpful for Rado... Boredo can't play against big servers... even Roddick beat him on clay, S&V (something he definitely CAN'T DO!!!).

Tom Paulman
05-29-2008, 09:17 PM
Yeah I thought about it too. He also recently lost to Karlovic on clay. He's the type of player who likes to rally from the baseline and Radek shouldn't give him much rhythm, but the H2H is scary. Boredo beat him easily even in Hamburg, when Radek was in top form.

Rado got his 1st win over Boredo this year in Sydney, so hopefully he will keep turning the H2H around :)

TMJordan
05-31-2008, 12:55 PM
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.

Tom Paulman
06-02-2008, 07:18 PM
Radek lost in 5 sets, again :sad:

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.

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.

Tom Paulman
06-03-2008, 12:35 PM
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?

GlennMirnyi
06-03-2008, 04:40 PM
Yep, I agree. Maybe a joint thread ownage? :p 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. :p :)

Rado's road to Wimbledon SF has just started. :rocker:

Tom Paulman
06-04-2008, 08:10 PM
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) :)

- He hasn't picked up a racquet since he withdrew from Nottingham, but will try to practice today in the evening
- The injury is in the place that's hard to heal. What helps is rest, so he's just relaxing.

- The injury is in the place that's hard to heal. What helps is rest, so he's just relaxing.
- He should play on Tuesday so he's glad he got an extra day off and hopes to play

What a freaking shame. Just when it was his time to shine. Fuck off. :mad::sad:

Radek is 2-0 vs. Andreev so hopefully he will win again and not like last week vs. Lopez :rolleyes: He's also playing doubles with Berdych (Olympics preparation) and they won their 1st round match vs. Lopez/Verdasco. Bhupathi/Knowles are next, they are No. 4 seeds but Radek & Tomas already beat them this year in Sydney.

Inspired by outrage over Robin Soderling not having his own Message Board and then subsequently shocked by news from Cloudygirl that even Radek does not one, I just added a new request/poll for Radek to get his own Player Message Board.

Please vote (http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=154502) ! http://www.menstennisforums.com/showthread.php?t=154502

I went through 4 Country Forums (I didn't feel I needed to any further research) and found the following players have message boards whereas Radek does not:

-Eduardo Schwank (Argentina, current rank #137, career high ranking #50) :o
-Evgeny Korolev (Russia, career ranking #52, which is also highest ranking) :smash:

-Jan-Michael Gambill (US, current ranking #908, highest career #14 in 2001):shout:

-Agustin Calleri (Argentina, current rank #394, highest career #16 in 2003) :eek:
-Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (Spain, current rank #42, which is also highest ranking) :smash:

-Mariano Zabaleta (Argentina, current rank #311, highest career #21 in 2000):mad:

This is an outrage! Please let your vote count! Thank you!
