of the Czech Republic will be looking to regain his best form and win some matches during the current clay court season.
Stepanek enjoyed the best win of his career 2 years ago at the ATP Masters 1000 event in Rome when he beat the World Number 1 Roger Federer in straight sets.
Stepanek made a great start to the year by reaching the final of the ATP Event in Brisbane where he lost to Andy Roddick.
Stepanek however then lost in the 1st round at the Australian Open in 5 sets to the big serving Ivo Karlovic of Croatia.
If the Czech player can find his best form then he has a chance of getting a few wins on the clay this season.
It is hard to see Stepanek winning a Masters event given the dominance of Rafael Nadal but he might be able to secure a few upsets.
