Re: Rome R2: Wawrinka def. Berdych 2-6, 6-3, 7-6(6)
Ugly choke. Berdych fell apart in the second set, in the third woke up a bit, all over the Wawrinka serve, missed a triple bp one game, then finally broke next to go *4-2 up. Having finally made the breakthrough, immediately lost focus and fired four basic nothing errors to give the break back. Seemed to be bothered by the wind, really struggling to find his footwork at times.
Very much old Berdy in the poor loss from a winning position unfortunately, but did show more fight than in the past at least, saving quite a few bps, twice puulling back a minibreak in the tb etc.
Wawrinka wasn't very good either, no groundstroke consistency, lots of errors.
