Good quality match considering how much both played yesterday and good win for Berdych when it looked like it could go 5. Unfortunately, after spending 12h51m on court this weekend, I seriously doubt Tomas is going to make much of an impact in Montpellier, especially given his tough draw.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (5): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013, Geneva 2015, Sydney 2016 and Buenos Aires 2016 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 3 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

I picked Big Berd in 4! He's the DC champ of course. Stan was always down in this match from what i can tell. 5-2 is only one mini break right? I don't think you can call that a choke.

Yeah, and Tomas put in two clean aces at that point so it was quickly 5-4.

Wawrinka is showing signs of being competitive again vs Top-10's this year like he wasn't for the big part of 2012, but he is losing all tight matches.

Wawrinka is specialising in losing close matches.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 18 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 28 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 12 GS, 5 Year End Masters, 30 Master Series.

How did he choke a match he was never leading in? He was down 2 sets to 1? It's easy to throw feces from your couch though, eh?

Good effort, Stan

Good effort, Stan
was he not up 5-2 in that 4th set tiebreak at one point? it was a good effort but he really should have won that tiebreaker

Good win for the lesser of two wankers.

you have to applaud to both players given the match on saturday.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Will Wawa ever win an important match in his life?

And then they ask why Fed does not play.
