Re: Roland Garros R3: Berdych def. Anderson 6-4 3-6 6-7(4) 6-4 6-4
That was "winning ugly" from Berdych. Well done. Solid in the end (5th set).
Quality was not that high, especially in that 3rd set tiebreak.
Mentally tough from Berdych, but not from (in the end tired) Anderson.
Both have so many winners because of serve and because both were not moving well. That was not claycourt tennis for 1 minute, it was hardcourt tennis with huge serves, especially from Anderson. But the movement is like 10% too slow (for Anderson) and 5% too slow (for Berdych.) which is a bit disappointing.
Both can't handle the slice really well, you always knew where they gonna hit their shots after a slice.
All in all, not the best match. Berdych in R4 but not in great shape.
