Again, Rafa leads bigger H2H with Fed, 18 - 10, and yet you won't find any sane Rafa fan who says Fed is not a tough opponent for Rafa.

Fed is NOT a tough opponent for Rafa on clay. That's one of the few known facts in our world mate.

warm regards...

6-2, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 and 6-3, 6-0 (and not even finals).

logic would dictate that 10 is a larger number than 4.

yes exactly.

H2H alone does not tell whole story.

hipolymer and elister wrote that just because fedleads the h2h with berdych that does not make berdych dangerous.

Re: Why is berdych so tough for federer?

berdych chooses to play his very best against federer, since his miserable excuse for a career started with a shock victory over him in athens olympics

berdych does not seem to grasp the fact that tennis is about grand slams, weeks at number won, and winning titles. instead, he treats matches against federer as a way to attempt to leave a legacy

perhaps if he got over his childish whims, he might actually win something notable. but then, with that atrocity of a second serve, highly unlikely

So Berdych hasn't won more 'big' matches than Federer.
Fed has beaten Berdych in the Olympics also, in 2008. So he only needs this match to complete the golden Berdych slam.

+ 1. This guy should have won a slam or two by now. When he beats Roger here I hope he doesn't believe the job is done...although I still want to see him lose to Murray on this occasion

I put 10K on Murray winning this whole thing too. 1K on Berdych beating Federer. I've never been wrong with tennis matches.

warm regards...

6-2, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 and 6-3, 6-0 (and not even finals).

Re: Why is berdych so tough for federer?

Straight from the horse's mouth...

“It's a quite nice statistic,” Berdych said. “But this is another one. He played some incredible tennis again, won another Grand Slam, become No. 1 again, so probably there is no better player at all to play right now. When I saw the draw in the beginning, it was like, ‘Yeah, that would be the goal to get into play a match with Roger.’ I was able to beat him three times. He's now strong again, but I think it's gonna be quite different match than the matches before. I'm different player as well. I'm getting more experience and feeling good.”

outside the top 4 this has to be one of the best H2H against federer.

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

Actually , Their H2H is 3-12 almost the same as Federer and Berdych.
Get your facts straight.

Furthermore, Berdych has a boost level that let his fighting spirit and accuracy increase about 380% too. Very similar what Sampras was to Agassi in US Open.
