Re: Why is berdych so tough for federer?
Yeah, Berdych just reads Fed's game exceptionally well, from the serve onwards. He returned Fed's serve brilliantly, not just getting it back but ripping it, and he did the same with some of Fed's best forehands, & backhands down the line. When a player not especially noted for his anticipation (though this is probably underrated) and movement is able to do this, it's kind of weird but it is what it is.
