Rome R2: [7] Berdych def. Kubot 6-4 6-1

Good from Tomas after falling behind an early break. Hit a great lob to break for 4 all in the first set and from there was pretty much in control, winning eight straight games. Kubot double faulted to lose the first set. He served horribly, and had no answers from the baseline, Tomas likes a target and made it tough for the Pole at the net with some good passing shots, a lot of errors both at the net and from the back of the court. Tomas was all over Kubot's serve and served well himself.

All in all, solid performance for Tomas.

How is it that a S&V like Kubot likes clay so much and has had the most success on it, I thought it was supposed to be their worst surface.

Mongoose starts threads before matches end so he can beat me to start threads, since he knows he can't do it in a normal situation. What a loser, you contribute nothing on this forum at all, and no-one wants you to start any of the threads

Tomas was absolutely awful in the first few games, barely hit a ball in court.

Looks like he was good after that though.

He can't defend or attack well on hard, strangely enough. Can't move to the ball enough to do either.

Happy birthday Łukasz!!

Not too much to say about this match. Kubot started good meanwhile Berdych was really awful. In total match he was fine and Kubot collapsed after losing his service game at *4-3. Berdych was too strong for him.

His fav counts are fast clay and slow hard.

Never ever give up

Berdych so uneven but when he finds his groove he's an unstoppable force. Now to find a way to conserve that for 2 full sets. Then worry about conserving it for 3 full sets in RG

Are you the only poster allowed to start threads then? Sounds like you're taking this just a tad too seriously...

His fav counts are fast clay and slow hard.
He also looks to be a decent threat on grass, which he should be.

I felt for him after DFing on SP.

Anyone know why he skipped Madrid?

He's not a pure S&V player. He likes clay because it gives him more time to execute his shots.
