Good fighting on Stan's part, he really wanted this match badly. Exciting and dramatic match with medium level quality.

Ugly choke. Berdych fell apart in the second set, in the third woke up a bit, all over the Wawrinka serve, missed a triple bp one game, then finally broke next to go *4-2 up. Having finally made the breakthrough, immediately lost focus and fired four basic nothing errors to give the break back. Seemed to be bothered by the wind, really struggling to find his footwork at times.

Very much old Berdy in the poor loss from a winning position unfortunately, but did show more fight than in the past at least, saving quite a few bps, twice puulling back a minibreak in the tb etc.

Wawrinka wasn't very good either, no groundstroke consistency, lots of errors.

good match by wawa to hold it in the tiebreak and to break back immediately after losing serve

Not great quality to be honest. Congrats Stan.

Stan's run will be over tomorrow judging on the performances of him compared to Robin.

Good for Stani! :yeah:

Apparently the Mr. Berdych we all know so well from the past four years - before IW/Miami - decided to show up again today. Well, it's part of the attraction of the fellow. :hug:

Excellent result. Stan fought very well :yeah:

04-28-2010, 05:37 PM
Kind of the expected result...wawrinka plays so much better than Tomas in clay...

This Swiss #1 is good.

04-28-2010, 08:11 PM
this wont be enough against soderling

04-28-2010, 10:59 PM
Tomas :retard: I thought when he saved those match points he would take this, but no... :tape:

I thought Tomas could win this based on his form going in. Worrisome scoreline.

Wawrinka showed Federer how to play with Berdych at 6:6 in the final tie-break ;) :smoke:
