You're not the first one that I've seen comparing these two...

BTW Are you watching it on the net?

He has the lips and the severe haircut, plus the tucked-in shirt and the old-fashioned forehand technique. But then again Lendl's forehand was a dominant shot and one of the most feared in the game, Radek's.... not so much. I don't see any similarity to Ivanisevic in the service action either, even if he was a lefty they're not the same. I once heard a commentator say that Stepanek's action was rather reminiscent of Tim Mayotte, another serve-volleyer, but then I never saw him play so can't compare.

He kinda looks like him a little at a glance.

The thing is Lendl only wished for Stephanek's volleys and transition game and Stephanek would love to have Lendl's dominant forehand and serve.

When I watch Stephanek it takes me back to an earlier time in tennis when many top players had an all court game.

Too bad he's a bit of an asshole, likeable game not likeable personality.
