Did he win the match? Then everything is correct as long as he gets the W next to his name and moves through to the next round.

You and I view things differently. To me everything is correct when you win easily. I guess you and Stefan think alike.

W and L are the most important things in pro tennis and players don't get extra points for playing well. Hence Koubek did well enough to win this match and got the correct result.

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.

Hmmm that is interesting about that contest.

Stef is now in Dnepropetrovsk and plays Economidies in the 1st round.

Don't underestimate the Big Greek, he has done very well this year as well.

Koubek defeated his doubles partner in straight sets and now has to play against big serving bozo Rusedski for a place in the QFs.

Stef defeated the big serving bozo in 3 sets and plays the young Ukranian Dologpolov Jr for a place in the semis.

This is great for Stefan. Hope he keeps it up. Go Stefan win.

Come back with the yellow shorts Stefan. He lost to the young Ukranian 6-2 6-4 and the worst thing is that he had 7 break back points when Dolgopolov was serving for the match.

Hope he has done enough to be able to get into Doha in Jan and he will more than likely be at the St Anton event again.

According to the S. Anton web site he will be there and so will Jurgen Melzer.

I was sorry to see him lose to Dologopolov. Stefan had been playing so well that I was sure he would win. It was a tough match for lhim to lose.

At least he has had a good year and risen in the rankings. He is better than his ranking shows, but he is slowly climbing up.

Stef will be playing in Chennai, then he is an alternate on either Sydney or Auckland, then off to the Aus Open.

Of course he is in St Anton, he loves it there.
