ezetroll, you are paranoid and think everyone has an agenda against you.

Onto the subject Berdych has a good draw and if he is good enough then he make the semis here, this doesn't mean he is going to win it and no one is saying that.

It doesn't matter how a player wins, as long as they win. If you don't get that then you go watch another sport.

Well done Tomas and in straight sets :yeah:

It is a really encouraging sign that he wins the really important games and doesn't seem to have these mental walkabouts for now *touch wood*.

Things looking pretty good. Now only one of the old farts to deal with in round 4 and then the fun really begins :devil: :devil: :devil:

Well, there is no doubt S÷derling is a good grass court player. Nadal is simply outplaying him,so no excuses there.

I'm glad Berdych is taking advantage of the draw. A solid performance overall with the exception of a poor service game serving for the match at *5-3. Arthurs or Bjorkman shouldn't pose much of a threat, and from then on the fun begins...

So now you speak for everyone :eek:
I am still waiting and waiting for that proof of me talking about Pashanski's tennis

But enough about you, good for Berdych but I don't agree it's a good draw, the next round is Bjorkman who is still a great grass courter and then Rafa/Youzhny.

(sic) Lee's revival almost took the match into a fourth set as he fought back to another tiebreak. But Berdych showed his class by stamping his authority again in the tiebreak, winning it 7-3.

Well done Berdych, but Bjorkman will be much tougher than most people think.

Who thinks it won't be? Tomas has a weakness against flat balls and Jonas is going to mix it up quite a bit and try to disrupt Tomas' rhythm. Also Jonas takes the ball pretty early which will cause Tomas quite a bit of headache considering his suspect lateral movement. Tomas needs to employ some controlled aggression and rely a lot on serving well.

Super solid by Berdy and it should be an interesting fourth round, a clash of the ages regardless of who wins between Arthurs and Bjorkman.

The really worrying concern while minute it's something to consider. If Lee granted he's a solid mover and his flat strokes work well on grass, if he can take Berdych to tiebreaks, should Nadal beat Robin, which is looking very likely and should this matchup take place Tomas's chances aren't looking as good as they were earlier during the tournament when the draw was out. Then again he does like facing Nadal and their games match up well.


It will be interesting to see how much more can Soderling push Nadal. Rafa will probably win 6-2 tomorrow or whenever they resume their match.

You said it yourself. Tomas' game matches up well against Rafa and on a non clay surface he loves to pound those loopy shots Rafa likes to hit.

But first Bjorkman, who I agree is no walk in the park. However, Tomas has more power off his groundstrokes, he has a better serve, is just as good a returner. So provided he keeps his head together he should come through but with Berdych that is never a given.

How come then Berdych has only broken serve 6 times in 10 sets whereas Bjorkman has broken 18 times in the same amount of sets despite having to play far fewer games? Face it, Berdych is all serve, hardly any different to Karlovic.
