Ok... Really good for Birdy.
Deserved, he won so many important things this year, and he reached QF of almost all M1000.

But it's kinda a shame, I mean, I don't like Nole but I wanted him in the SF. No rafa, no nole, no muzzah... No big names except from Roger.

Well... Good for Berdych, again, deserved.

Well done Berdman, excellent last set.

Plays Tsonga in the semis, huge chance for both to make the final.

David was 4*-3 40-15 in the second set. :rolleyes: In the third he just fell apart after he got broken in the first game. He served poorly throughout.

With this, Berdych sends Novak home and ends up group #1. He will face Tsonga tomorrow and Ferrer will take on Federer.

Tomas Berdych this evening beat David Ferrer in three sets to secure his place in the semi-finals of the ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 Arena in London.

Given that Ferrer had already secured qualification with his win against Novak Djokovic, this result means that Djokovic, the world number 1, has failed to qualify for the latter stages of the tournament.

The semi-finals will be played tomorrow, with Berdych facing Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Ferrer facing Roger Federer.

Soon as Andy pulled out, the result of this tournament was never in doubt considering Novak and Rafa's issues. Berdych playing his best, and not having mental lapses ;), is the only player that might be able to make the final somewhat intresting against the clown.

Very strange to see Ferrer totally collapse halfway the 2nd set being up a set and a break. Suddenly everything deserted him, most notably his 1st serve, and Berdych was ready and able to take advantage. As soon as Tomas grabbed the 2nd set 7-5, I sort-of knew that this match would go his way. Great showing by him throughout the 3rd set, very well done indeed.
Congrats to both for making the semifinals! :yeah:

The guy who said midway through the second set Ferrer would just tank a possible third was absolutely right. Guy gave no shit in the third, from the beginning to the very end. Can't really understand it, with some fight he could very well have won and then enjoy more rest + a supposedly easier SF opponent.

Tomas did well to hang on the second set when Ferrer led *4-3 and had two gamepoints. Played very good tennis from then on, first set was just abysmal though. Still, good fight to come back, didn't choke, played well in the latter stages of the game. Deserved victory, first over Ferrer since 05 :)

Perhaps they should change the format to top 16, single elimination, #1 plays #16 etc.. This round robin format is silly and unfair for some of the players. Fed had a day off and Ferrer had to play Fri night and Sat. Federer-Tosnga final would be the best match up, IMO.

At first I was "what the fuck is Ferrer thinking?! Trying to grind out this match and be spent tomorrow and still having to play Federer?!". But probably the math on Ferrer's match was "it is Berdych, so I still have a shot at playing Tsonga". :lol: :lol:

I like Tomas game. He would benefit a lot from having a plan B. But maybe it is tough getting this guy to have a plan B when you can hit massive shots like he does. I remember once him saying that he sees himself as a "slow burner"- therefore he probably thinks his time to win a GS will come around eventually. Unfortunatelly I don't see this happening unless he starts thinking on the courts. What a great player would emerge if you combined Murray's tactical brain with Berdych's amazing power. But who knows ... if Nole managed to get on a prolonged hot streak, maybe Berdych can put together two weeks of flawless tennis (but this is unlikely at this point).

It was best for everyone. Except Ferrer. Djokovic gets to go on vacation with out having faced Fed in his current funk, Berdych makes the semis, and Fed get's his turkey. I hoping against hope Berdych or Tsonga can pull the upset and take out the old man, but I haven't really cared since Murray withdrew. Since then, the watching the WTF has been like watching a train wreck but knowing your relatives took a plane. Morbid fascination.

Also, Berdy's ass was poppin today. I hate that they cut away during the shirt changes.

Lol at people who thinks Nole avoided beatdown from Fed. I'm very confident that Nole would have won that match. Despite that he didn't deserved to go to semis. Unfortunately Ferrer gets 2nd place in the group, and that means Fed is already in the final. Tsonga vs Berdych is very intresting match, but it would be so much better if it was the final...the only good thing out of it all is, like i said, Fed will never again win a tournament where he has to face both Nadal and Djokovic(healthy). But i disagree with people who thinks that wtf is useless tournament, they should give 2000-2500 points for it, that would definatly change top players atitude on it. Wtf should be at the same level as GS or even higher, since you get a chance to win it once a year... To win a GS is easier than wtf since you have 4 chances per year while not facing top 8 at least before QF. Everyone counts GS these days, no one counts WTF, change that and you'll see top dogs going all out for it :)

11-26-2011, 05:36 AM
WTF happened here? I left and he was a set and a break up! Reading the atp article, it seems like a horrendous choke turned tank. Now he has to play Fed and end up 2-2 this week. The head to head rule has to go, it is ridiculous. Ferrer was clearly the best player in the group and had the better results.

Ferrer: W-L is 2-1, sets W-L is 5–2 (71.4%), games W-L is 37-29 (54.4%) -- Standing: 2
Berdych: W-L is 2-1, sets W-L is 5-4 (55.6%), games W-L is 46-43 (51.7%) -- Standing: 1

The maths looks fucked up -- but remember, Berdych beat Ferrer, who was the top of the group. If you beat the top of the group and you were 2nd best, you steal the leader's spot in time for the SF. And it's a shame Ferrer had to go and fuck up this match up.

Can someone explain to me why people call tournaments with upsets 'boring'? Surely having the same group of guys making the latter stages of a tournament week in week out is much more boring? If Ferrer beats Roger today I wonder if the same bunch of nole fans will still call it boring
