Perfect match from Berdych. Ancic had no chances in any moment of the match.

Phenomenal performance by Tomas there and Ancic had no chance against that mixture of power and consistency. He was patient from the back, hitting deep but not high risk but as soon as he had even half a chance to attack more he hit clean winners over and over.

22-16 winner - UE ratio for Ancic is perfectly good and would win most matches.

Tomas ended up with a 26-12 winner - UE ratio.

I didn't want him to win, but he played really well so I cannot say anything against him.
I'll be happy if he qualifies with this kind of form.
Just hope that neither Blake nor Boredo will qualify.

This is why I'm a fan of Berdych, he's just a perfect ballstriker, such clean and perfect strokes.

Then he'll stink it up like no one else the very next match. A complete oddity.

Really great match, I enjoyed watching one of my least favorite players dispatched so easily. :hearts: Hope Tomas can keep up the form.

Aww Mario :sad: Well done to Tomas though :)

Berdych was too good tonight - one of his perfect storm matches.

In any case, Mario looked knackered, like he needs a long rest.

He can have one now. :hug:

The way Berdych played today, I would be perfectly fine with him qualifying if Haas doesn't make it.

Why? I mean, if he proved he could string this together consistently then I doubt anyone would have a problem with it, but isn't the problem that he CAN play like this but rarely does?

I'd still hate to see him get to Shanghai and then have one of his crappy weeks where he needs a couple of extra metres added to the length of the court.

Great performance from Tomas! :worship:

Happy to see him play a wonderful match again (it has been quite some time...). Hopefully he manages to maintain this level!

Hopefully he continues to show up and not just crap out.

By the time I got up and turned the TV on.... the match was almost over!
According to what the commentators said, Tomas was playing a nearly flawless match from the 1st point on......
Paris indoor has to be one of this favourite tournaments since he won it there 2 years ago!
I like the talent of this guy.... and I hope he will keep it going... and hopefully he can be qualified for the TMC!!!

Very impressive match from Tomas, good things will happen if he stays that focused and motivated :yeah:

I hope Berdych can pick up enough wins to qualify for Shanghai. I'd much rather him make it than any of the other contenders.

That sliced backhand cross-court winner in the first set was out of this world. :eek:

But sadly I don't think he'll make it to Shanghai. He's been choking a lot lately, losing matches that he shouldn't be.

Well, true about him not being consistent, though I doubt that he would play like sh... in all 3 RR matches, which means that he could at least give one of the top players (be it Rogi, Rafa or Nole) a run for his money.

Outstanding performance by Berdych here and there was nothing Ancic could do, it was one of those days.

As for him going to Shanghai, well as much as I like the player, in reality he doesn't deserve to be there on the basis of the whole season, but strange things can happen.

Letting your bias get the better of you when it comes to Berdych. Well if he drew Federer and Davydenko in the same group, then it would be a problem for him, but this is not likely.

Probably applies to all / most players going for the 8th place.

All I want is a player going who will make an impact. It may be a great achievement for Robredo to qualify, but is pointless if he loses all his live matches for the second successive year.

That's a shame for Mario, but Berdych played very well and was just too strong for him.

Yeah, obviously Mario is not physically fit enough after mononucleosis and injury. :awww: :sad:
At least he got some match play before the off season. Now get some rest and then a good preparation for the next season! :hug: :hug:

I watched the match and Tomas was really impressive. He didn't give Ancic any shot. Attack after attack, great serving, plenty of points from serve...oh yeah, Tomas loves playing in Paris :p
I just hope Ferrer won't ruin his chance to get to the Masters :scared:

If he wins enough points to get to Shanghai he deserves to get to Shanghai.

Uff, Mario didn't play nearly as bad as someone might think just looking at the scoreline :eek: :eek:

Too good from Berdych... and too bad he does this so rarely these days
