What do you think about this man. Do you like his behaviour and style at court? Do you think he trying to psyce out his opponents or is it only his joy for a winning point?

He is even said to be popular among women. WOMENS!, Do you like his appearance?

He annoys me little with his over the top celebrations and the worm thing but I love his game and enjoy wathing him play.

He's a natural showman. What he does doesn't seem contrived at all to me.

I once heard an interview in which he said that he had tried to tone down his antics a while ago, and his results suffered.

Some people just perform best when they are being themselves. Leyton Hewitt tried to sedate his on court behavior, and his results were so poor that Darin Cahill and others implored him to get fired up.

i was at the french open for the first 6 days of the tournament and the most impressive player i saw was stepanek. i watched him destroy robredo 3, 2, and 1. best volleys in the game (it's not even close), very very good backhand, good serve, excellent drop shot, good athlete. forehand can be a little streaky but it's also very dangerous. if i had to tell someone to watch one player play, other than federer, it would be stepanek.

How old is the guy? He looks pretty old. But he does get to have Vaidisova as a wife.

Go Radek!

not only does he possess a wide variety of shots, he also has one of the smoothest, most efficient games out there. he barely even seems to stroke the ball, yet he gets a lot of pace and spin out of his shots. he strikes me as one of the ideal players to try to model your game after.

You need to use the search function, no?

Radek's quite the character. I enjoy watching him play.

Keep it up, Radek!

He may not have the best looks, but he is O.K. in person and seems to be a very nice guy.

He can be a bit over the top sometimes. But he seems humble enough off-court.
