I was sorry to see that Koubek did not play very well against Kubot losing 2-6, 3-6. Both Stefan and Kubot have risen in their rankings this year. I run a contest on Tennisweek.com and Stefan has improve by 103 places while Kubot has improvedd by 20 places so far this year. In the contest my son picked Stefan and I supported his selection because I knew Stefan can do a lot better than he had. Marty Fish is the leadding player as he has improved 178 places. Hope you will enter the contest next year. It starts in December and I give everyone two weeks to enter. No player may be selected twice.
