Nicknamed "Steps" by his countrymen, Radek Stepanek began playing at age three with his father, Vlastimil, a tennis coach. His mother, Hana, is a librarian and he has a brother, Martin, who is a policeman. His hometown is an industrial mining town north of the Czech Republic. In 2009 Stepanek bounced back from a mid-season knee injury to reach the third round at Roland Garros (l. to Cilic) but was forced to retire in the first round of an ATP Challenger Tour event in Prostejov just a week later. He recovered to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon where he led Lleyton Hewitt by two sets before succumbing in five sets. In his down time Stepanek enjoys playing soccer, floorball and hockey.
