AO R3: Berdych defeats Gasquet 6-2 7-6(3) 6-2

Berdych in amazing form.

Winners to unforced errors was outstanding (around 3:1). He could do some serious damage here. I'm a bit afraid for Nole.

Good stuff from Tomas. Unpredictable guy, but great when he's on.

Good job Tomas, I think he'll make the quarters at least, in great form.

Richard had some moments and it was closer than the score suggests, but overall Tomas too good today and too many errors/DFs in crucial moments on the other side to do any better. Richou

Berdych's form on the rise from match to match

Yeah, credit to Gasquet. He came up with some amazing shots and that backhand never gets old. It is one of the most effortlessly effective groundstrokes on the tour. He can hit winners with it on even the slightest opportunity.

Re: AO R3: Berdych defeats Gasquet 6-2 7-6(3) 6-2

Surely Gasquet must be getting to point of seeing he needs a new approach. he's going backyards in my view. his forehand is such a liability. he needs someone who will get stuck into him and show him he's wasting his talent. hanging around 25-40 isn't good enough.

Berdych is a better player than Gasquet anyway so it's a moot point in here.

Berdych as usual only shows up against lower-ranked players.

Because that IS all you're really saying. We are not going to go through this again, are we, enumerating wins and discussing how many you can call a fluke without sounding ridiculous even to yourself?

Have you seen the match?

In the first set, Berdych served at 94%. This is massive. Richard did well to hang in the second set, saving some breakpoints early on and playing buch better towards the end, I found the 2nd set if good quality from both. The breaker was crap from Richard.

Richard did not play defensively and camp behind the baseline, but his aggressive play also caused errors, while Berdych was able to keep his error count incredibly low, only 17 (!) for the whole match. Just for comparison Roger had 36 UEs in a shorter match.

Berdych was the better player today, no doubt but that doesn't mean that Richard won't win another match this year.
