Rotterdam SF: Del Potro def. Berdych 6-3 6-1

Del Pony is back

Watched from end of first set, Berdych was pretty bad but you have to give Delpo some credit for that, he was playing consistent, aggressive tennis with few errors, forcing Thomas to succumb in the rally or play the low percentage shots. BH worked very well for Pony today. Also clutch play to recover from 3 errors at 2-0 *0-40.

Federer overwhelming favorite for the final but Juan should keep it closer than in Australia.

Rotterdam SF: Del Potro def. Berdych 6-3 6-1

Del Potro's ballbashing was too good, plus he defends a lot better than Berdych. Very comfortable for the Tandil Tower.

Berdych had an easy short ball but didn't got anywhere del Potro at the net, when it was the easiest way to win the point.

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".

Rotterdam SF: (3)del Potro crushes (2)Berdych 6-3, 6-1

Decent performance from dP overall. A few loose errors from Berdych at the wrong times in each set, cost him IMO.

Juan was good. Tomas on the other hand was just awful for most the match.

Dedicated to myself but either way definitely one of the better Del Potro matches since he begun his comeback.

The anti Delpo hata's are burning with bitterness (nobody expected that dismissing the higher ranked (and this year only once defeated) Berdych was gonna be sooooo easy for the Argentine)

This match somehow reminds me of Soderling vs Del Potro around this time last year.

Re: Rotterdam SF: Del Potro def. Berdych 6-3 6-1

Berdych.... what a choke and terrible performance overall. Delpo was solid, but still if Tomas played better could have won, that game 0-40 he should have broken that serve and it was still open, after that he mentally collapsed, his FS again horrible under 50% in, and so many errors in longer rallies... really this was i think his worst performance this season

Why should you? Your mug Gasquet loses to far worse players all the time, wake me up when he actually does anything of note again.
