WWW London 2012 RR: Nole or Berdych?

Djokovic will tank his match 6-0 6-0 to bring berdych to the semis against Federer. It's the smart option. Murray and Federer out in one strategic move.

Nole to rip Berdshit into shreds and then rip those shreds into even smaller shreds.

Re: WWW London 2012 RR: Nole or Berdych?

isn't there a risk that djokovic won't qualify through if he gets beaten by berdshit?

if murray beats tsonga, and berdshit beats djokovic, then 3 players will each have 2 wins

by the way, which match is taking place first on friday? this will determine whether djokovic can afford to tank

That'd be a terrible idea because if Berdych wins in 2 and Murray beats Tsonga in 2, Nole is going home.

Anyway, Novak will win this match.

If Nole loses 6-0, 6-0 and Murray beats Tsonga in straight sets, Novak could go out no?

Re: WWW London 2012 RR: Nole or Berdych?

I want Federer to play Djokovic in SF, now I dont think Berdych is good enought to give me what I want. Maybe Federer can tank against Delpo (if the math works out).

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Re: WWW London 2012 RR: Nole or Berdych?

They should really put this match on before Murray-Tsonga to take away any opportunity to manipulate the scoreline. They didn't do that in 2009 when Federer and Del Potro went through. I don't believe for a minute that Federer actually let Del Potro win that one (back then Del Potro seemed a bigger threat than Murray and I say this as a Federer fan) but tennis should learn from football and not allow these situations to be possible.

If Berdych-Novak play first then there's no option to mess about with the scoreline (as Djokovic could still go out depending on the score in the other match).

Or he could do that, Murray could win in 2 and he won't even qualify for the SF. Djokovic and Federer out in one cocky idiotic move.
Luckily, Nole knows better.

I would find it interesting if he decided to tank after going up a set. Then, Murray wins in 2.
Now all three of them are tied in matches and sets so games decide everything. Given Berdych's win today, can't see how Djokovic wouldn't be able to rig the game score, except for the fact that Berdych will have something to say about it.

Nole should win this in 2.

Nalbandian/Davydenko/Berdych/Gulbis/Nadal rock, the rest is more or less sucky.
