Two letcords in the game he broke never hurts. Then again Verdasco had lapses in the 2nd set.

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".

Very well played by Verdasco in the third set, great serves and a excellent forehand in two breakpoints against him. His backhand was very good (as recently), taking the ball early enough to move Berdych around the court, putting him frequently into a defensive position.

Berdych, well, double faulted in the first breakpoint against him

I will be convinced when I see Fer winning again a top 4 player... till then, keep trying Verdascus!

Nadal on Clay
81 Number of consecutive clay-court matches Nadal won from April 2005 to May 2007, an all-time record.
151-5 Nadal’s record on clay since 2005, a 97.2 winning percentage.
177-15 Nadal’s career record on clay (a winning percentage of 92.1)

Norman would like Verdasco's running forehand today.

Nando twice in the 2nd set was a break up.
Rollercoatser match, Berdych had 2 points for 3:1 in the third.
Unusualy for Tomas he managed to avoid UE after two shots rally, but still Verdasco was better today.
