I watched that vid several times already, but I still don't know what exactly Stepanek was trying to do lol. Challenge? To intentionally (but unfairly) get a let?

I agree with the umpire though on awarding Isner the point.

Stepanek is probably the ugliest player next to Hrbaty.

so he was faking a challenge trying to get isner to stop and then pretending he was not challenging?

Speaking of Hrbaty,could these be the 2 biggest noses in tennis history? :)

Love his game but that was totally bush league. You can even hear people laugh at him.

Looks like Stepanek tried to distract Isner. Doubt it was a give up on the point move or else he wouldn't have cared too much losing the point anyways

Just goes to show that you don't have to be good-looking to get the girl.

After all the absolute bollocks that have been written on this site about Nadal's alleged gamesmanship, it's refreshing to see some real downright dirty pool. Talk about bush league. So bad.

Lahyani again. The guy is a joke.

He has done some wrong judgements lately. BUT his decision was right in this one. And he was the umpire in the Fed-Sampras match, creation of the GOAT.

I don't get it. It was a legit challenge that the umpire failed to pick up on.

I'm not sure if that was a true hindrance though. Really, the ump can tell you how to stand now?

To me a hindrance is a noise or perhaps movement in the face of an opponent when both are at the net or something like that.

Lack of movement is now a hindrance? I don't buy it.

In other news, Steppy did quite well in Shanghai, especially for the age of what... 33 now?

The umpire probably did the right thing but, really, Stepanek was totally within his rights to do what he did, even if it wasn't a very honorable thing to do.

That was very lame of Stepanek. Just take the hindrance penalty, even if it was a brain fart.

Radek is known for his gamesmanship (and for having "game"), but I like this explanation better.

Really? Hrbaty is average looking in my opinion, don't find him ugly at all. I can't look at Stepanek's face for longer than 5 seconds.

Total ******** move by Radek Grouperface. I hold up my racquet, 99% of the time my opponent's going to think I'm looking to halt play (for whatever reason).

Cheap, very cheap.

That's the point. Radek argued that he wasn't challenging. Isner absentmindedly hit the ball long thinking it was a challenge, and then Radek said he wasn't challenging, and he should get the point cuz the Isner's ball went out.. Such bush league it's almost incomprehensible he's a grown man. So Liyani, said fine, you don't want to challenge, then you lose the point for hindrance. Raising your hand, your racquet, is no doubt, without dispute, the international sign for a challenge and has been for the last five years. He stood their with his racquet above his head. Just despicable.

Oh lol I didn't watch til the end. Didn't realise he argued that he wasn't challenging. LOL Radek you a funny guy.
