Gonna watch this later, but glad today had at least one competitive match after the first 5 days of drama. Just from the score looks like Bird brain has a bit of a fighter :eek:

the key now for istomin is to not disappear until next year's grass season

Istomin served for a 5-2 lead and for 6-5 in the 2nd set breaker. 4th and 5th set Birdie served to big!!

Very impressive from Isto, Berdy was having a hell of a lot of trouble handling the pace coming at him.

Berdy choked serving out the 2nd, and tried to do the same thing in the 5th.

not sure if the old berdych woulda had the poise to close this one out. roger will need to be on top of his game against the czec

This was an awesome match to be honest, Istomin played amazingly well, and so did Berdych.

A weird first 3 sets though, it seems like the better player in the set lost it :lol:

Things are looking to be set for an epic Federer-Berdych QF. Hope Fed doesn't choke the match away this time around.
