Well played, Radek. Celebration was nice too, straight into the other guy's face, Sptepanek style :D

Oh, I wish I'd watched this on the live stream.... Sex Machine v Shark in the final, pretty please, o tennis gods?

Hope Novak's hip is okay... it seemed to affect him for a few games there in the 2nd set, but he played through it.

Still a good tournament for Nole, should move up to 62-ish in rankings :)

Radek's attitude is more disgusting than his face, which means a lot...

What attitude? You mean hitting overheads into the body and celebrating "in your face"? It's part of the game. For example he doesn't cheat with line calls and shakes hands after matches, what more do you expect?

As a player i like Radek, really enjoy watching him play...but he really doesnt do himself any favours with his sportsmanship. Suppose the game would be dull without characters though...

Good match, some great long rallies. :yeah:

Too bad Novak couldn't take it, he was so close. :sad: I hope the hip isn't too bad.

Radek's attitude is so annoying. :( :rolleyes:

I watched this match, well most of it until the feed started freezing. Novak was injured early and had trouble moving and Stepanek had no resistance on serves. In the 3rd, I thought Novak had him and was playing better but somehow let it slip and now I understand why Stepanek isn't popular because he was obnoxious out there with his petulant behaviour.

Unlucky Novak, think the injury may have contributed to his exit. Still a good week :yeah:

Only a matter of time before Novak starts winning a lot of these types of matches. Interesting to note that this year, nobody has really rolled him except for Goldstein of all people and he did win a set in that one. That's always good sign for a young player.

I wanna hear the dirt.

his hand gestures are offensive and in your face. It's really embarrassing for a grown man to behave as classlessly as he did in a public arena.

Looked like some sort of hip/upper thigh injury. I haven't heard anything official yet.

djokobitch fans really shouldn't be whining about stepanek's behaviour given how novak acted in match against monfils at u.s open :wavey:

i think stepanek is a funny guy
i think tennis needs guys like him and koeller
i think Mcenroe would approve of them
novak was very affected by the defeat as could see in the handshake at the end
though stepanek is a bellend u should still be gracious in defeat and admit the btter man won, ur only a better person for it!
