Entries in Radek Stepanek (11)
It’s August. It’s hot.
And that means fans at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati can enjoy a bevy of shirtless professional tennis players’ bodies.
The tennis tournament boasts four stadiums: the 11,400-capacity Center Court, the 5,000-capcity Grandstand Court, the 4,000-capacity Court 3 and the 2,000-capacity Court 9.
But many fans know some of the best views are on the 12 other smaller courts used for early-round matches, as well practices.
There, just a few feet away, they can see their favorite male tennis players – who often are shirtless. So the question begs (BEGS!!!) to be asked.....Who would YOU rather?
It's exciting for me when a promising Australian comes along who doesn't give off the vibe of being a jerk. It's common in my adopted country for sports heroes to have massive chips on their shoulders. I'm not sure if it is the underdog status or the highly competitive nature of Australians that makes them that way, but I find that it's hard to root for the majority of Australian sports people. Lleyton Hewitt in his prime and Bernard Tomic are just two examples.
Yesterday, Nick Krygios, the junior world No.1 and current Australian Open boy's champion, announced his arrival to the big boys' club when he beat Radek Stepanek in three tiebreak sets. He received entry to the main draw courtesy of a wildcard after countryman John Millman withdrew with injury.
I wonder what Dima did this time. (Click to picture to see his expression.)
Radek Stepanek won the Legg Mason Tennis Classic today 6-4 6-4 over Gael Monfils. He celebrated the only way he knows how.........with "the worm" (at 1:00)! Congrats Radek!
Radek Stepanek was our first Q & A at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic after he defeated Philipp Petzschner to advance to the 2nd round. He's a super laid back guy who loves playing for his country and considers his lucky charm his wedding band. Let's say it together people, "Awwwwwwwwwwww!" Enjoy!
During his match against Radek Stepanek, Rafael Nadal took a pretty big tumble when he attempted to close out a point at the net. Radek was nice enough to come around and help the big guy up, but Rafa didn't repay the favor, beating him 6-3, 5-7, 6-1 to advance to the quarterfinals of the tournament.
Rafa must have had a ridiculous grass stain on his arse after that fall. Hope someone got him some Clorox Bleach, stat!
