Could I just ask what on earth has happened to Stepanek's ranking? I always saw him as a pretty "above-average" player who would most definitely get past the first couple of rounds in any main draw. How on earth did he end up being ranked 127?!

He got injured after Wimbledon last year where he got to the QFs then was out for the rest of the year. Since returning, he hasn't been able to recover that form so that's why his ranking is so low. His ranking plummeted after Wimbledon where he failed to defend those points. After his run in Gstaad this week, his ranking should be at around 102.

Injuries, didn't defend points from Hamburg Final and Wimbledon QFs.

He will be back in the top 100 soon enough and he didn't play for the last 6 months of 2006.
