American Donald Young in the semifinal round of the Legg Mason Tennis Classic
The 32-year-old Stepanek convincingly beat the 22-year-old American 6-3, 6-3 to reach the final.
Post match Young said, "He's a veteran... 10 years my senior."
Their post-match demeanors couldn't have been more dissimilar. Stepanek walked into, and out of, the interview room with a bored air, checking his phone for messages. Young sat with the body language of a teenager, baseball cap backward, one sneaker resting upon each other, not really making eye contact with his questioners.
"He had me quite flustered."
"I couldn't get set into the way I wanted to play. It wasn't that I was nervous, but more so he took me out of my game"
