Tough match for the bird. I can't believe Llodra couldn't win one TB.

Llodra was a break up in the fourth 'till Berdman raised his level. Good stuff!

Llodra is a great underrated player too bad he didnt have a better draw.

Not surprising scoreline if we know Berdych's mental strengh and choker skills of Llodra.

Good job Tomas.

Is Llodra a huge server or what ? Berdch made no impression on his serve, judging from the scoreboard.

Players who make me...
:Federer - Davydenko - FitDave - Cilic
:Safin - Monfils - Non-Slam Federer.
:Nadal - Roddick - Murray

Hmm, not a good sign. Maybe he got all the anger out of his system though. Great that he can play well when it matters (BPs faced). Thanks.

Well the trick is to play the important points well and get the W under your belt even when not playing well. So considering the fact that Berdych has struggled in such situations in the past but today he managed to come through is actually a good sign.

Besides, Llodra is no mug on the grass. When I saw his name next to Berdych's in the draw I immediately thought this could be a tough one. IIRC Llodra is left handed and can slice the serve out wide, he can serve and volley, hits flat and hard and uses the BH slice a lot. So this was a very good match for Berdych to come through.

Difficult match as expected, but it's all about getting the win.

Definitely a good perspective to take! Not playing well and managing to pull out a win is much better than not playing well and getting ripped apart. Winning matches when things aren't going your way has to be a good learning experience, and Berdych is a player who needs that kind of experience, having lost so many matches because things just weren't clicking into place.
