Cincy R1: Berdych def. [13] Gonzalez 6-3, 3-6, 6-3

I didn't see the entire match, but from my limited viewing, Berdych has some very nice set-up point to either hit clean winners or force the errors.

Berdman finally got a win over Gonzo after losing 3 matches in a row against him. It was a good performance, but never know what can happen to him in the next round, where he plays Seppi.

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".

Was it just Gonzalez's crapiness or did Berdych really move better than usually?

2nd set aside, I thought Berdych played very well. Nice volleys, and shot set-ups

YAYYYY!!! Birdman!

First win against Gonzo () - the stats showed that Gonzo actually scored one more point than Berdych...

Berdych should have wrap up the match in straights.
I think that he is capable of going very far here.
Seppi is beatable, Faker is out of form.

I don't know what to think. Like them both.

TBH, a mixing of both.
Fernando, as usual, started veeery slow. He was exposed on his BH [nothing too strange though] for most of the 1st set. Berdych started very pumped, hit some nice winners and dictated most of the rallies. Fernando missed a lot.

In the second, Fernando started a little bit better, cut off most of his UEs buuuuuuuut, at 2-2 he decided to colapse. Berdych's serve saved him from a couple of 15-30 situations so he was very positive which frustrated Fernando too much. Berdych carried his positive attitude and broke Fernando in the fifth game. Berdych seemed like he was going to win in two but nah, at *3-2, he totally messed things up and let Fernando come back. The following 4 games were a gift from Berdych. Too many UEs and TBH Fernando did nothing too spectacular to clinch it 6-3.

In the third, Berdych was decided to take the match, he got an early break and never looked back. His serve was working great when it mattered. On the other hand, Fernando was playing much better but never took the iniciative in the rallies, he crumbled as usual and his behaviour dropped.
At the end, Berdych took it 6-3 with a little of resistance from Fernando.

Fernando needs to work on his mental game. He started arguing with the umpire because of a let cord first [ he heard it but the umpire didn't ] and then something about the hawk eye system, he stated that players are allowed to have time to see if they want to used the hawk eye something like that .. I didn't get it to be honest. ..

Oh well, on to Beijing. Feña

I half-watched most of the match (only sort-of paying attention for parts), and Berdych definitely played pretty solidly, especially with getting to net and volleying pretty well that I saw. It wasn't a really compelling match, but I thought Berdych won it more than Gonzalez lost it, and looks like he could make a decent run in Cincy.
