Default WWW Madrid R2: [2] Roger Federer vs. Radek Stepanek

This will be Federer's first clay match of the year, so he may be rusty.

He'll still win in 2 though

Federer in 2.

Kenny de Schepper fact of the month (January 2015): never lost a match against the Big 4 (Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray), something that can't be told by none of the TOP 30 players of the year-end 2014 ATP rankings.

"Matches are won and lost so many times in the locker room. Guys get in their mind how strong he is the warm-ups and that they will have to endure four hours of that to beat him: they are beaten even before they step on court. But that's why I like him. He basically says you are going to have to kill me to beat me." Lleyton Hewitt about Rafael Nadal

I love Stepanek-Rog matches. It will be hard without good passing shots though. He needs to be focused and serve well.

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

He played 6 matches in the AO. The surface there is very similar to clay.

Stepanek ground strokes will put Fed to the test, Radek is known for his baseline grinding. Fed in 2 though

It's not often Federer faces someone with better looks than him, but this is one of those rare occasions. Whilst Federer dresses a lot better than Radek, Sexy makes it up with his flawless teeth and phenomenal jet black hair. Sexynek needs to use his superior looks to his advantage, and on several occasions he needs to look Federer in the eyes just to remind him that he's the better looking player. If Radek uses this technique effectively he will be able to force Federer into retiring from the match out of embarrasment and self conciousnes, however if Radek forgets to stick to his game plan for even a split second Federer can take the match 6-0 6-0.
