Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic, will be looking to win the 1st Masters 1000 title of his career in Indian Wells California this week. Stepanek comes into the tournament full of confidence having helped his country defeat Belgium in the Davis Cup to seal their place in the Davis Cup Quarter Finals. Stepanek reached the finals of the Masters 1000 event in Paris at the end of last year, beating Andy Murray along the way before losing out in the last 4 to home favourite Gael Monflis in 3 sets. At the start of the year Radek Stepanek reached the final of the ATP Event in Brisbane for lost in 2 tight sets to Andy Roddick 7-6 7-6. If Stepanek can find his best form then he has a very good chance of causing a huge upset and winning the 1st Masters 1000 title of his career this week in Indian Wells.
