Radek Stepanek has been one of the most entertaining and controversial characters in tennis on and off the court.

Now ranked 382 in the world, the Czech has managed to play only 10 matches this year as he was struggling with injuries. During the last spring, he underwent a lumbar spine surgery, but eventually, he didn’t fully recover to comment

"I knew a tennis career was limited, but I wanted it to last as long as possible. I have fought until my last breath but it's time to go now.

I've had some hard time in the year since the surgery. I have decided to end my career. I took a broader look at my life and found out I'd hate to risk my health."

Stepanek has won 5 career titles, and he reached 7 finals. The most important triumphs for him are the Davis Cup titles back in 2012 and 2013 to become the first man in tennis history to win the decisive rubber in 2 consecutive Davis Cup finals. in doubles, Radek has won the Australian Open (2012) and the US Open (2013).

Stepanek broke in the top10 (no.8) in 2016.

He will be missed.

 

 

YES .. HE WAS FUN!!!
