If Federer plays like today, Berdych is going to destroy him .

Based on today's performance, Berdych in 3 sets I reckon.

not 2006 anymore

since Fed cant move like the old days Berdy has the upper hand on him + its too physical a match for Fed to keep up, he wont risk straining anything before London

Berd in 2

fed did his job getting to semis

Berdych in 2.

Federer's only chance is if Berdych is tired.

Both guys made plenty of errors today.It`s not like Berdych played a great match to beat Murray.It will all come down to how fit Berdych is and if he is ready it could be a good match and could go either way

If Berdy plays like he did in Cincy Federer will get murdered out there. Federer's only hope is to (1) serve big and accurately (Berdych destroyed Federer's second serve in Cincy); and (2) use his full variety to move Berdych around. IF he doesn't, Berdych will power him off the court with big serves and massive forehands.

Berdych easily as Federer is his current court slave.

If I know one thing about Fed is that he wins when he is about to prove a point except if it is against Nadal

Yes, because Berdych has 16 slams and Federer 0. :rolleyes:

Agreed. In Cincy Berdych didn't even face a BP on serve! In fact he wasn't even taken to deuce. :eek:

in Cinci Berdy Destroyed Fed's 2nd serve like it wasnt there

bh down the line is the killer shot for him over fed, fed never won a point when berdy did that as well

Berdych in 3. It might be wishful thanking, but hopefully the big ballbasher can save the tournament by sending the arrongant one packing.

Berdych's BH DTL was his worst shot today - it was terrible.
No saying what it'll be like tomorrow though.

I'm pretty sure if Rogie beats Berdych tomorrow in the SF and makes the Paris finals, that he's the first ATP player to ever make the finals of all 9 Masters Series events. Rafa has made 8 of 9 (no Cincinnati) and Djokovic also 8 of 9 (no Shanghai). If there is anyone else who has made the finals of all 9 Masters Series events, please let me know who!

Normally, King would demolish Birdgreat, but this time I want Prince Thomaz to add another good win to his great career.
Happy with any result, but still go Birdgreat.

Roger in three. Expect a tight tie-break somewhere.

MaxPower
11-11-2011, 07:14 PM
Got a feeling this could be a great match. Federer will probably be put on the defensive. Question is if Berdych can keep the errors down. I'm rooting for Berdych but feels like Fed in 3

Hopefully Berdy isn't too tired from today- I mean he's young and healthy- so hopefully he's fine. Berdych will be the first top 10 player Rog has played since the USO, so it will tell a lot.

Start da Game
11-11-2011, 07:48 PM
the match is definitely on berdych's racket......slow conditions should suit berdych's big hitting even more than federina's wily old witch tactics of waiting and wrong footing opponents......

berdych will have ample time to stand tall, pick a side and blast into corners all day......he just needs to take care of his first serve......we should also remember that berdych's heavy serves even if they are returned, will only sit up in these slow conditions, unlike on fast courts where they zoom past you......

fed's ego problems with berdych also makes matters tough for him(fed)......so a fired up and in the zone berdych = bye bye federina......

berdych in 2 or 3 sets......

if Roger plays like he did against Monaco, Berdych will straight set him.
if he plays like he did against Gasquet, then Roger in straights.

Most likely the first one :lol:

If Federer lowers the UE count from today then he'll win no problems. The slice backhand is key on these Paris courts - Berdych with 1 hand on the racket is a total donkey. If fed uses variety Berdych is going down.

Federer is the luckiest player ever. First he dodges Djokovic in the Swiss finals and now he dodges Murray AND Djokovic here in Paris.

Yes, because Berdych has 16 slams and Federer 0. :rolleyes:

I think fed will win but what on earth does 16 slams, the most recent coming almost two years ago have to do with tomorrow's match?

Because it's Fed's fault that Djokovic got his ass handed to him in the Semi's.

berdych is on a roll in this event. his momentum may just carry him further. he will have to serve really well so the pressure can stay on the other side of the net.

Federer in 3 tight ones. He'll win the first, lose the second, win the third. Probably 6-4, 4-6, 6-3.

Please read all the posts. i was replying to someone who said the match was on Birdie's racket. Since Fed has 16 slams and 17 masters I think it's preatty obvious that if Fed brings his A game Berdych has no chance.

GOAT = Fed
11-12-2011, 12:54 AM
Oh man I would simply mark out so much if Federer beats Berdych. ALLEZ! Come on Fed send Berdych packing!

If the Federer of today turns up and the Berdych of today turn up, expect the clownish match of the century :o

Berdych will be tired after his 3h+ match against Mugray, Luckerer will win in 2 sets.

Monaco today had like deuce or at least 30 on nearly every Fed service game :facepalm:

this could be 6-2 6-1 berdy

Pressure about qualifying to London is off so he'll play more relaxed and Berdych always did well against Fed in their last matches so why not?

Bit surprised by the match odds Federer 1.36 Berdych 3.6. I would have thought it will be much closer, like Federer 1.6 Berdych 2.2

People seem to think that if Fed played like shit yesterday, he has to do the same today. Fed knew he beat Monaco even on bad day, he could afford play sloppy tennis.Today is different, he has real chance to win his 1st Masters of the season( all 3 top guys out of his way) and maybe it is his last Masters, who knows..he cant afford to waste this chance. You also seem to forget that this is indoor match, which suites Fed more than Berdman.Berdych never beat Fed indoors and Fed has perfect 9-0 indoor record this season. Last year his indoor record was 19-1! We are talking here about indoor monster even on his downhill years, not some rookie.

Berdych indoors is not anything special, last year he had 9 W 10 L or something like that.

My prediction : Fed in 3 sets
