Berdych/Stepanek def Allegro/Federer 3-6 5-7 7-6(7) 6-4 6-4 after saving a matchpoint

It might not have been the most clever decision to put Berdych and Stepanek together since they've never played doubles together and on the other hand, Damm/Stepanek used to be a solid doubles pair back in the days. They had to save a match point at **5-6 in the tie-break and stepped their game up after winning the 3rd set. Congrats guys That was a big drama, especially at the end of the final set when Berdych made 2 consecutive errors serving for match.

EDIT: OK, so Tomas & Radek actually played 3 tournies together before, last time in 2006

LIKE: Stepanek, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Raonic, Pouille || HATE: Nadal, Almagro, Monfils, Troicki, Simon, Tipsarevic

Berdych/Thunder Lips def Federer/Allegro 3-6 5-7 7-6(5) 6-4 6-4. Czechs lead 2-1

Great fightback from the Berdman and Stepanek.

Glad to be proven wrong on this one as I thought Jaro Navratil had too many Czech beers picking this combo.

Makes the last day very interesting indeed.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Navratil's risky decision paid off in the end.

It's all on Stepanek's hands tomorrow to seal the deal.

Berdych - the master of five-setters, 9-0 in singles, 1-0 in doubles

Roger and Yves What a disappointment
Congrats to Tomas and Radek for coming through.

Good luck to Stan for his match against Sexy Lips tomorrow It's good that Stan had a day off today whilst Radek had to play.

Federer is in trouble... even if he wins tomorrow against Berdych, Stepanek could perfectly beat Stan the Man.

So happy to be proven wrong and I thought Jaro was drunk when he made this as his doubles combo.

Just shows how the fine the line is between genius and lunatic.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Disappointing, but I'm a fan of the Czech team as well as the Swiss team, so I suppose the extra suspense in the last two matches will be exciting.

No, I did not. I said he was on something, this does not mean it was dope. More like magic mushrooms, but the magic worked.

Well done Berdman/Sexy, nice comeback. Fed and Allegro a bit unlucky, but you need to take it on those clutch moments, otherwise it will comeback and bite you in the ass. Looking forward to tomorrow.
