    What's worse: losing a close match to Stepanek and him doing the worm or getting blown away by Stepanek and him doing the worm?

    I think I would throw my racquet at him either way.

    Why? Radek Stepanek is one of the most complete players on the ATP tour. He can hit any ball.....play from any area of the court...and moves like he's 19.

    Yeah. I think everyone is aware of Radek's game but the worm??? You would like your opponents to do the worm after they beat you?

    Personally, the worm is the least annoying thing about Stepanek. If he did away with his on court antics and gamesmanship, I could live with the worm at the end of the match.

    It would be funny if Roger Federer did the worm.

    His hair would probably get messed up, though, which would make him cry.

    His "running in place" when he wins a point is most annoying.

    Actually is't good to see little bit personality from Nadal "vamos', Hewitt gesture and "comoooon", Safin grouting racquets, Agassi after winning match and even the worms are good.
    Just try it yourself, it's funny and not that easy.

    yay for trolling fail.


    I don't find stepanek that annoying I mean he is just making himself look doofy it makes me laugh. But if you want to talk ridiculous match win antics Fed + Wawrinka wtf was that?

    people who play tennis, watch tennis or commentate on tennis or just anyone who is involved in the sport need to shut up and treat the sport like all other professional sports.
    doing the worm is funny, makes great tv. i don't understand why tennis players mindsets are still prehistoric and hold those old respectful values which hurts are sport so badly in the united states.
    if some football star did the worm after a touchdown it would be treated much differently. point being lighten up people
