Radek wins, Martina loses

It was a reversal of fortunes for both lovers with Stepanek staging a comeback to reach the 4th round of Wimbledon for the 1st time in his career while his girlfriend Hingis was beaten in 3 sets by Japan's Ai Sugiyama after being 3-0 up in the 3rd.

Radek beat former Roland Garros champion Juan Carlos Ferrero 5-7 6-7 6-4 6-2 11-9.

Radek seeded 14 here had been beaten at the 3rd round in his 7 preceding Grand Slams!

The Czech-born and Monte Carlo based player will play Fernado Verdasco of Spain, in the fourth round.

On the other hand his girlfriend Hingis a 1997 ex-champion here was beaten in 3 sets thanks to her own ability to finish of the match.

After being up in the 1st set and losing in 7-5 she rallied to win the 2nd 6-3; in what seemed like an easy win with her being 3-0 up on the 3rd, Ai not only squared at 3-all but went on to win the match 6-4 in the third.

In a scene from many matches Hingis again seemed to be disturbed by a disputed line call in the 5th game of 3rd set!

Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. I’ll give you a link on your web blog. I recently came to know about http://uklocalmovers.co.uk/, their House Removals Wimbledon are very effective.
