    Radek, Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are truly a classy athlete and such a nice person! You took the time to speak with my 11 year old son, Zach who plays tennis in Atlanta, GA, USA and admires you greatly! I can not put a price on your generosity. My son will continue to be a fan of yours and will remember your kind words forever! It was a pleasure having you aboard my Flight ATL-PRG.
