Onto the quarters for Tomas, and a respectable showing once again from Jonas. Kudos to him for eking out a set, though with the other sets' scorelines you'd wonder what happened in the third.

Bjorkman was barely given any centre court balls... Berdych was either hitting un-returnable serves or hitting his groundstrokes in the corner apexes :yeah: Well played Mr Berdman!

Finally, Berdych gets to a GS QF. I'm not sure what went on in the third set but good to see he could shake it off for the fourth set. Two bagels:eek: The way it looks right now it'll be Berdych vs. Nadal QF. Really good chance for Berdych to advance even further.

I guess Tomas has been tanking that third set, otherwise I can't understand that scoreline... :lol:

Great job, Tomas! Enjoy your bagels! :drool:

Yep looks like Youzhny is done. This could be the match of the tournament :devil:

I just hope Berdych isn't nervous and is able to play his game.

I'm sad for Jonas, but it was definitely a deserved victory, with Bjorkman just about managing to grind out the one set.

Well played Birdman!

Great win, strange scoreline though. But Berdych is known to go away for a set sometimes.
Well, Nadal has to watch out for him. Another 5 setter is likely and I like Berdych in this 9:0 in 5 setter speaks for itself.

If Berdych plays like this tomorrow Nadal is beat and that's all their is to it.

I hope for a good match and good weather to go with it.

I've never seen Bjorkman so pissed off out there. He went nuts on the chair umpire in third set after a questionable overrule. He was screaming at the ump calling him "useless" etc... :lol:

Can any Swedes provide a rough translation of that rant Bjorkman had towards the umpire near the end of the 3rd set? He went absolutely nuts.

in a close tie-break 8-6 :rolleyes:

07-05-2007, 04:48 PM
The way he responded to losing that tie-break was great though. He could have dwelled on it and maybe lost serve to open the set but he didn't. He focused and wrapped it up with a bagel.

It`s not typical behaviour for Bjorkman:confused: and two bagel sets:confused::eek: But he took one set and reached fourth round, so it was quite good result for him:)

Agree, not bad for an alleged serve-only player. ;)

i mean, did anyone see the match. I realize that it was close tie breaker, but how in the hell did it even reach that. The rest of the sets were no where near tie breakers. Tomas must have had a brain fart or something.

I'm very happy for him, and I hope to god that I don't have work and can see his match against rafa. And I hope that he beats him too.

Solid performance so far, the first quarterfinal in a slam and an excellent opportunity to go deeper. I almost forgot, congrats for returning to the top-10 :D

i call this match in thomas's favor but didn't think he'll dish out two bagels against bjorkman.

He probably relaxed a bit, missed some BP opportunities, and then got into trouble on his own serve. Sometimes it's hard to keep concentration up for 3 straight sets especially when your opponent was having difficulty even reaching 30 on your serve games.

Chris Seahorse and I will bump it up.

Btw, this result was never in doubt.

He is a big Santoro fan, otherwise the comment would merit a seed into the ACC.

I've never expected such behaviour from him.
