"I would have tried to play in Australia next winter and if I still had problems I probably would have turned in the towel." Instead he played Rosmalen and lost to Roger Federer in his first match. "But he doesn't have Tim Henman's popularity, and that bothers him, because they say he is always injured.

And if that did not work Goetske would be sacked."If that had happened I could have said goodbye to the highest level of tennis," Krajicek admitted. Second, he was given a standing ovation by the Dutch crowd."The public back home have always respected Richard because of his skills," said one Dutch tennis journalist.

Tomorrow, the man who expected to be on holiday in Majorca with his family will tackle Mark Philippoussis for a place in the quarter-finals.

The 6ft 6in Dutchman and the 6ft 4in Australian have more than a booming serve in common.

Their only prior Grand Slam match was in 1996 at Wimbledon.

Krajicek won 7-5 7-6 6-4 to inflict the seven-time Wimbledon winner's only defeat at the All-England Club since 1992. “It's a matter of making him play as much as possible. It's always tougher to return when the ball comes so quick. Once you let him attack you and decide when he comes in and how the game is going to be played, you're in big trouble. I always try to rush him a little bit, try to make him play a game he doesn't want to play. “To have a good chance against Pete, I think it's better to play him early.

Another joyful thing for Krajicek is that, after years of bitterness, father and son are now reconciled. Petr Krajicek read newspaper comments by Richard that he wanted to talk to his father again and decided to write to him.

But he could not bring himself to post the letter, so he travelled to Krajicek's luxury home in Muiderbeg, 12 miles from Amsterdam, intending to deliver it personally.

This was carried out on 29 March at Arlington, Virginia, by Dr Robert Nirschl, an expert in repairing the sore elbows of baseball pitchers."The problem was degenerative tissue," said Krajicek in the aftermath of Friday's third-round win over Thailand's Paradorn Srichaphan.
