That is good win for Berdych. He is playing a very clean tennis!

Serious kudos to Berdych...after spotty play the past few months, to have the belief to take Fed at the USO, weathering a 3rd set storm...impressive.
Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

No doubt he was the better player tonight...
Fed just get his act together.
If berdych keeps playing like this, I like his chances against Murray, and whover comes out of the other section of the draw.

Federer just did not have the game tonight!  Look very tennative in the begin and in the fourth set!  I think he just was not mentally up for it!  Oh well; that how the match goes sometimes; even if you are suppose to be the greatest. 

Cannot wait to see Andy take care of Tomas!  You have to remember that it is Czech vs. Czech!   Lendl + Murry vs. Berdych!

Tipsarevic-Ferrer could go 4 hours tomorrow.

Side note to today's action:
Alex and Shankar successfully boycotted Day 10.

Congrats to the Berdych fans (Lug)...he played very well. Roger was making too many UFE and Berdych played clean tennis for most of the game. I wanted Roger to win, but it wasn't to be tonight so... Congrats to all the winners today.

The Berdych/Murray match might be interesting if Berdych continue to play like he did tonight . I think the announcers said Berdych has a winning record against Murray. But we will see. They both can rest until Saturday.

got up a couple of hours ago very early in the morning to see the second set and then fell back to sleep........i was so tired........getting up just now again to see that berdman has successfully destroyed federer........that second set was some hammering........

i am not surprised with this........who was it luke jensen or someone was acting as if nothing like this ever happened before........we all knew this was a possibility........berdych can destroy anybody on his day, he's proved it quite a few times in the past........

Marian Vajda to Novak Djokovic, "I saw you beat that man like I never saw no man get beat before, and the man KEPT COMING AFTER YOU! Now we don't need no man like that in our lives."

i demand french open to be renamed RAFAEL GARROS

no Babs, not sure about Shank, I'm just having a really bad stomach flu. feeling so tired, just didn't really feel like posting anything.  I watched most of the matches today including Berd/Roger. Kudos to Berdych for sure. still feel that he will fail to win against Murray. not sure, who knows?

the way I see it is Djoko vs. Muzza final. Nole winning. but this is the best opportunity for Murray to win a major. it is going to be very interesting.

IMHO, the lack of matchplay over the past few days really hurt Federer, just like it affected Nole in RG 2011 SF. Nevertheless, credit to Tomas for getting the win - he looks really good. Murray vs Berdych should be an interesting semi.

ok no offense to no-one, but why is Murray touching his back now and making faces??? Hurt again? I can't see it!

Cilic on firee!!  ;-()


Looks like Murray put the fire out with water in that set Murray hatter. :)>>>>
What on earth is a Murray Hatter?




ONE THATS NOT GOOD @  CHESS LOL :rofl_2: don't be upset monster it's a joke :rofl_2:
I actually happen to like Andy (not Roddick) the best out of the top 4 so I don't really see the correllation, but if you find it amusing, by all means, have at it! :))

Is it that Berdych hits the ball flatter and harder than everyone else? I think it might.
LOL, just responded to a post from Luggy suggesting that could be one of the reasons for his inconsistency. 
He absolutley crushes the ball and the margin for error is not as high as those players who hit with heavy top.

I can't watch grown men like Berdych and Cilic curl up in the fetal position after they get huge leads.

I hate this generation.  :thumb-down:

He's crapping!
I like that analogy.

He should wear navy...hides it a bit better.  Impressive to see how much better Fed is playing though...yeah Berd got tight but Fed has been off for a good portion of the match.

Fed's like a shark when he senses blood in the water. He metomophoses into another player. This is how he wins so many of his matches. He just holds on long enough until his opponent begins to bleed.

Commentators mentioned the same thing.
At this stage of his career, I'm just not buying it.
Rest has got to be more important than adding to his career total of 'balls hit' which must be over 10 mil at this point.
