This will be the 12th encounter between the world nr. 2 Novak Djokovic and the Czech Radek Stepanek, who is still a top 40 player (currently 40th) in the world despite being almost 36 years old. Unfortunately for Radek, not only Djokovic leads the head to head 10 to 1, but he’s also on a 9 matches long winning streak against him. The two already met in Wimbledon during the 2012 tournament, where after losing the first one by 4-6, Djokovic won the next three sets, all by a score of 6-2.

Stepanek is a natural grass court player who enjoys serve and volleying whenever he can, but against one of the best returners of all-time in Djokovic this seems like a lost cause, especially if we factor in the speed (or more like lack thereof) of the current grass. Djokovic was extremely convincing in the first round, destroying the Kazakh Golubev 6-0, 6-1, 6-4. Stepanek also played well against the Uruguayan Pablo Cuevas (6-2, 6-4, 6-4), but that probably won’t mean anything in the grand scheme of things, and those who are waiting for a close score, will probably be disappointed.

If the grass would be slower and less bouncier while Stepanek would be in his prime, this could turn out to be a close one, but as of now, even an absolute rout in favor of the Serbian wouldn’t be surprising.
