If the court is a decent speed and Berdych serves well he could well do some damage.

He's troubled Djokovic everytime they've played this year:
Australian Open - Led 4-1 in 2nd set
Dubai - Led by a set
Cincinnati - Led by 5-3*

Not saying it was, but Berdych was by far the better player in the 2nd set, just choked it away but that was NID. :o

true but still..............but on this surface if Novak is playing his game Berdych will lose in 2 ...but I favor him against Murray because he will be the attacking player in that match

If you are going to think like that, A LOT of players troubled Nole this year... in the end he lost 4 matches + 1 WO.

Berdych has the game......but considering his form vs Federer, expecting a routine win for Djokovic.

Well I think we have to take in mind the way Federer played as well as that Berdych played for 3hrs 15mins the day before. :shrug:

Still got over 2 days till the match so hopefully we'll see a fairly fast court tomorrow which should give Berdych a better chance.

Let's not forget that Berdych faced Federer after a gruelling match against Murray. He was tired.
I still think Novak should win this match. :)

Berdy was playing supremely well in Cincy though, and it's pretty quick out there. But for the injury, he'd probably have won that one.

All depends on Djoko's fitness and match sharpness really.

Djokovic in two comfortable sets if he's healthy and playing well.

I think Berdych can win but if Djokovic is okay and plays well, no way.

Berdych won't be as easy as some people think, he's a big hitter with a good repertoire.
But if Nole's shoulder doesn't bother him at all and he's around 70% form I see him winning in straights.

Novak is a bad matchup for Berdych period.....

Nole in 3, I think Berdych may win a set because it's Nole's first match in a few weeks and he needs a match to shake off his rustiness. I only see Nole losing to Murray in RR.

Nole's last match was 10 days ago. :confused:

o.1 Novak Djokovic says he is 100% recovered from his shoulder injury and should be fine for the ATP Finals.

"I had problems in the shoulder and before that with my abdominals," he told reporters. "But everything is better. I served a maximum of my ability for two or three days."

Since winning the U.S. Open, Djokovic was forced to retire in the semifinals of the Davis Cup, withdrew from Shanghai, was hobbled in his loss to Kei Nishikori in Basel. and withdrew from his quarterfinal of Paris-Bercy.

He'll face Tomas Berdych in his first match in London. "The season is long," he said. "The calendar is loaded and the players are struggling to be 100% of all tournaments, especially late in the season."


I hope he wins this title if Nadal or Federer dont

Actually, I predicted Djokovic, but I have no idea what to expect. This is probably the most up in the air first round match. Djokovic hasn't been himself since the US Open, and Berdych is a different player every day.
