RG 4th round: Federer beats up Berdych 6-3, 6-2, 6-3

Served well, played some really good defense, and hit some great winners. In other words, basically what he has done in all his matches for the past 2.5 years.

Other than a little lapse at the beginning of the the third, this was no contest at all. Berdych hardly won any of the long rallies i.e. rallies longer than 7 strokes in this case as aspected. Federer put pressure on just about all of Berdman's serve games, having break points in most of the games or at least getting to deuce or 30.

Oh Tomas I had hoped for such a better showing. He really blew today.

Key stat. Well done Rog. Now keep up the good work against Super Mario.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Federer's FH was average for his standards, but his BH was as good as I have seen it. Interestingly enough, Fed stayed towards the back of the court more in this match than in any match during Roma or RG so far, content to trade groundies from the back of the court.

Bravo Fed! Virtue won once again!

Bedrych I though you will be better, but you made it a pretty boring match

Now Federer has a lot in the tank and Ancic shouldn't trouble him on clay I suppose...

There was no doubt in my mind about the end result of this match going into the day. Berdych had to bring his A or A+ game to have a chance and with Tomas, that is extremely rare. Federer also makes it hard for Tomas, not giving him much to tee off on. He moved the serve around, varied the BH i.e. heavy topsin CC deep, slice short, inside out BH to the deuce court, BH DTL, brought Tomas forward, etc.

What was it Agassi said? "It was an old-fashioned street mugging."

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Yes - just what Federer needed.

Ancic may well be suffering still on Tuesday so with a bit of luck he can despatch Super Mario double quick time. I have a feeling he'll need the energy for the semi-final.

Disappointing match really. Failed to live up to its billing. Berdych is still something of a head case. When he sorts himself out he'll be an incredible player . Right now he needs to work on his attitude. I don't like seeing him hang his head down like that .

Anyway good win from Rogi . Next the super hot Ancic. He's really come of age on clay. Can't wait for Tuesday.

Yeah, that was strange. When they displayed net points won, I was shocked. I guess, Roger played a more clay court game today because he rightly assumed that Berdych would play a high risk game.

Well done, Roger!
Couldn't see the match and I doubt ESPN will show it on tape as it was so one-sided. I expected Berdych to give far more resistence, too bad he couldn't make it more competitive, but it's probably for the best. Roger's got already a tough road as it is.
