H2H is even at 2 all. The two have split their meetings on hardcourt-----Tommy winning in straights in Dubai in 2007, and Radek winning in three over Haas in Montreal in 2008. Tommy had a health scare in Dallas last week where he withdrew after tweaking his back in warm-ups before the SF, but he's apparently healthy enough to participate here. This is a de-facto home event for Tommy as he has trained at the Bollettieri academy since 13 and has a residence in south Florida. Stepanek has a 16-8 record in Miami and had won at least two matches every season at the event until last season, where he lost to Federer in R2.

Tommy has shown signs the past few weeks of returning to life on court and has shown signs of his previous level of play, overall playing the best tennis since his latest comeback. His form is probably better than Stepanek's right now, and I think his motivation levels are high. Straight sets win for Tommy on the cards here.

Are they going to play chess or have a knit off? This detail is important when determining who is likely to win.

Ajde.

Hass has to see you strip in front of him to get himself back into form ;)
:hearts: I don't love him enough to do that, unfortunately. But he was inspired at his first round AO match when he looked straight at me for two seconds. That was why he won. :angel:

I thought you would be cheering for Haas to win :confused:

Ajde :sad:
:ras: Clearly your idea of beauty is beyond warped!

He so wants that delicious leng lui, I can tell ;).

Anyways...after viewing H=L's image....there's a change of plan. Strip towards Sexy instead.

Haasi will continue on his merry way, a slow climb back to some semblance or form before his next inevitable injury issue TT
