It’s Stepanek vs. Alamgro for the Davis Cup!
Wow, it’s all come down to one match for the Davis Cup, Radek Stepanek vs. Nicolas Almagro. Berdych just lost to Ferrer in three sets to force the final match. Wish I could see this match but Cablevision eliminated The Tennis Channel. How dare you Mr. Dolan.
This is as good as it gets, have a feeing something special is going to happen in this live fifth match. Stepanek is 2-1 lifetimes vs. Almagro but Nico won their last meeting at this year’s US Open 6-4 in the fifth set, in the first round.
Talk about a war. There is no way this match will not be special and dramatic. I can’t ever recall seeing Almagro in a big pressure match though I do remember seeing a DVD of Step vs. a 17 year old Nadal in the fifth live match in a Davis Cup tie in Czech about seven or eight years ago. It was amazing that Spain put the young Rafa in such a pressure situation and Rafa prevailed 64 75 75 I think the final scoreline was. It was on an indoor carpet too.
So maybe Step will not come up big in such a vitally important situation. Didn’t Step also lose a key Davis Cup match last year or the year before to Tipsarevic in the fifth set?
I’m stating to get excited to see this, let me go find a livestream, enjoy this one people, I know it’s going to be a classic…
FYI Step won in Rome vs. Nico in 2005, 46 64 62 and he won in 2010 Paris Masters 76 64.
