Very interesting final of Czech club extra-league (mixed gender) took place yesterday. It was best of 9 matches, played in Prostejov - indoor/hard.

Šafářová-Benešová 7:6 (7:3), 6:3
Seppi-Hernych 6:0, 4:6, 4:6

2 mens doubles matches were not played as dead rubbers. Stakhovsky, Hájek and some of the men who played singles were ready for Prostejov, Prague had Melzer/Petzschner.
In earlier rounds other top 100 players played for other clubs like Stepanek, Kubot, Dodig, K.Beck, Troicki, Rosol, Istomin, Kukushkin, Haider-Maurer.

Prostejov has plenty of cash, but it's league tennis all these players are training mode.

And these players complain the season is too long, yet they play this.

Well, congrats to them I guess.
I'm not so sure that these are the players complaining about scheduling. Seems like only a handful of players want changes but they are highly ranked so their opinions are more noticed and for some reason projected onto lower ranked players. I'm sure these guys were happy to get a nice paycheck.

It's not wrong. It's just wrong for someone like Nadal to threaten a boycott then open season by playing an exhibition followed by optional tournament.

Nadal's whining is just ridiculous and embarrassing. And then the media always writes: "Everybody complains about the long season blablabla"
Actually it's just Nadal and his little boy Murray who also complains some time. Maybe they should change their schedule and playing style, would help them a lot for sure :rolleyes:

Kvitova loss to Hradecka is hillarious. A headcase during off-season as well. :eek:
7:6(6) 6:7(5) 5:7

Seppi bageling Hernyich and then losing a match is not much better. :facepalm:

Seppi :lol:
What? :mad: :armed:
He ran out of energy :angel:
