Novak Djokovic walked on thin ice during his match against Radek Stepanek on Tuesday.

As it was expected, Stepanek turned out to be a tough nut to crack, and if the Czech could have concentrated a little bit more on some of his break points during the fourth set, the match could have easily gone into a 5th set, which would have put all the pressure in the world on Novak Djokovic, who barely escaped with his life during the fourth set tie-break.

 

The Serbian’s next opponent is Gilles Simon from France, who is a lot better matchup for Djokovic than the natural grass courter Stepanek was.

 

The Serbian and the French have met 7 times during their careers so far, Djokovic winning 6 of those matches. Those duels were mostly straight set encounters where the match was more or less on the world nr.2’s racquet throughout.

Gilles Simon is a very dangerous opponent on clay and on bouncy hard courts, but grass is not really a surface that suits his usually measured playing style. His winning percentage is barely over 50% on grass, and he will need a borderline miracle to change that on Thursday against the Serbian.
