Djokovic vs Stepanek
 
I really like the contrast in styles. Stepanek can really get Novak uncomfortable. But Im not expecting a suprise in the match tho.

Stepanek's forehand is too flat for this surface I think, he just won't be able to hang in these long rallies long enough. Although Querrey did say it was playing quick...maybe we will be in for a pleasant surprise.

Anything else would be astonishing.

Stepanek is playing pretty well right now. I'm sure the match will get broken open sometime soon, though.

Edit: Seriously, Djokovic doesn't need any luck.

There's a proverb that says "luck goes to the bold". That would apply to Djoko very well.

I prefer "fortune favors the bold", but I agree. I just want to see a good match, and that is only going to happen if Steps can get ahead early.

Guy gets broken as soon as the match gets tight. So predictable and boring.

Sorry, Djoko is just too good.

Yeah I know, I was hoping for a little bit better mental strength from a 34 year old veteran and Davis Cup hero but...I guess its never easy playing the world #1

Djokovic's game is boring me to death when he's no threat.

When you check out the defintion of "solid" in the dictionary it shows Djokovic's picture.

Stepanek is like one of those lost gems, much like Llodra. Incredible amount of finesse and character. I wish the courts were fast enough to give these guys a decent shot against polyester strings and players who can chase almost any ball. Such a shame.
Go Stepanek

Stepanek had Petra Kvitova rooting for him in his box while his wife (Nicole Vaidisova) is at home. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the very definition of Big Pimpin'. ;)
