Stadler reached a career-high of No. 8 in singles in February 2001 and No. 14 in doubles in January 2001.

Professional careerEdit

2008Edit

After a slow start to the year, Stadler reached Challenger semifinals two weeks in a row in Cremona and Athens to reach his career-high ranking of No. 164 in April. He reached another semifinal in Telde in May.

In June, Stadler qualified in singles for the 2008 Wimbledon Championships, beating British junior No. 949 Daniel Cox (a week after Cox knocked off No. 67 Thomaz Bellucci), No. 248 Rainer Eitzinger and No. 270 Nicolás Todero. He took this form into the main singles draw, where he faced the 18th seed Ivo Karlović from Croatia and beat him in four sets. He then defeated the aforementioned Brazilian, Thomaz Bellucci in the second round, 8–6 in the fifth. He would go on to lose to Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis in the third round.
