Stepanek has a 4-1 H2H over Kohli, including a win in the 2009 USO in four sets in the third round. Steps has had a good summer winning Washington and qualifying and making R3 in Cincinnati and he's approaching top 20 again. Kohli did OK in Cincinnati coming back to beat Roddick and beating Lopez, but has definitely had a very up and down season.

I see no reason why Steps won't win this, but on paper it's a very competitive match-up, so who do you all think will win?

I'm feeling Kohlschreiber too, but really nothing in his game points to him having the edge here. What does Kohli have to do to win?

steps may get by. he will force the issue by offering different looks. it could work.

the courts will play fast so kohli may be robbed of some time if steps takes it early and attacks when the opportunities present themselves.

Sadly Step in 4, because Kohli doesn't have a Gameplan against Stepanek. Steps agressive game is something Kohli can't handle. But a win woul be so great!
