Verdasco already did his job this week, but Berdych was pretty solid today will have to step it up against del Po in the semis.

05-11-2012, 02:53 PM
Too good, Verdasco.

05-11-2012, 02:54 PM
Career changing win for Verdasco.

A career changing match yesterday... not.

Mugdasco is back :D

05-11-2012, 02:54 PM

Berdych was solid, that was it.

Berdych is playing amazingly on this surface.

05-11-2012, 02:54 PM
oh dear... :o

05-11-2012, 02:54 PM
I am gonna enjoy Berdych - Del Potro SF. :bounce:

05-11-2012, 02:55 PM
Tomas the destroyer :worship:

05-11-2012, 02:55 PM
the good work has already been done, time to relax now :D

05-11-2012, 02:56 PM
Good for the game.

05-11-2012, 02:56 PM
Expected. I was surprised he even took more than one game.

05-11-2012, 02:56 PM
Fiasco living up to his name.:o

Expected in some sense, yesterday's achievement against Nadal, cost Verdasco too much in every department, reminds me of Roddick's win in Miami against Federer, on the following day A-Rod had nothing to show facing Monaco.

Very much expected result.
Berdych might be the only one who appears to be enjoying this surface - he's been cruising so far.
Berdych - Del Potro is a match to watch out for. :yeah:

Verdasco only proved here that his victory yesterday was for 90% due to it having been a matter of Nadal succeeding in a brutal attempt of beating himself. :bowdown:
Never mind, QF of a masters, good result anyhows.

05-11-2012, 03:00 PM
Fiasco will always be a legend in the game. Berdych has to much to bring to the table on fast courts/conditions for claycourters like Nando and Nadal had he played.

05-11-2012, 03:01 PM
Berd monstering his opponents.

Verdasco was too deep in the court - he should have realised early on Berdych's form was going to kill him given enough time on the ball. Monfils made the same mistake.

05-11-2012, 03:02 PM
Berdych showing how it's done =p

Im happy with Nando, im not sad that he lost because he lost to a better player, thats all. But at least he got into the quarters of his hometown for the first time. Berdych was too solid like most of the people here said. Berdych is on a roll right now. He was in the semis in MC, so im not surprise that he is playing very well.
Vamos Berdy:cheerleader:

Nando i still love you, i dont care what people say about you.:hug: :smooch:

05-11-2012, 03:02 PM
Make the final Berdman.

The most expected result of all time.

05-11-2012, 03:19 PM
thanks for the money, enjoy your breadstick.

05-11-2012, 03:22 PM

05-11-2012, 03:27 PM
Poor Nando.:hug:

05-11-2012, 03:48 PM
Roddick won more games though despite copping a bagel :smoke:

Nole fan
05-11-2012, 04:04 PM
Never in doubt. :haha:

05-11-2012, 04:14 PM
Nadal's scalp serves as Verdasco's trophy this week.

Time Violation
05-11-2012, 04:22 PM
Berdych playing well this clay season, expected result :)

GOAT = Fed
05-11-2012, 04:24 PM
Mugdasco :o

How can he follow up a great victory against Nadal with a breadstick? :o

05-11-2012, 04:30 PM
This was nid just as Roddick getting spanked by Monaco after heroics.

05-11-2012, 04:48 PM
Good showing by a future top5. The match vs Delpo will be the first real battle during this clay season. It's nice that the defensive muggery was put on hold for a while.

Berdych had routined Nadal too 6-2, 6-2 or so in his current shape and in these conditions

05-11-2012, 05:17 PM
How bad was Nadal :scratch: :p ?

In all seriousness, Berdych played really well. This court suits him perfectly since it is quite difficult to defend on it and in addition his "hail mary" defensive shots from behind the baseline put the opponent in uncomfortable positions (if he gets it in!) whereas on slower courts, these defensive shots could be easily directed into the open court.

05-11-2012, 05:21 PM
Extremely expected.

05-11-2012, 05:42 PM
old good Fiasco :)

05-11-2012, 05:44 PM
berdych to routine potro.

05-11-2012, 05:46 PM
shame, but kinda nid

05-11-2012, 05:54 PM
Somebody who saved humanity a day before didn't deserve to lose again Birdshit but don't be bothered Nando. You are The Man of the week . This week won't be forgotten

05-11-2012, 06:13 PM
Rafa :lol: :hug:

Berdych all the way for this tournament, bet your house on it

05-11-2012, 06:16 PM
Berdych all the way for this tournament, bet your house on itWat

05-11-2012, 06:18 PM
Berdych all the way for this tournament, bet your house on it

actually agree with you. just choking against nole(if nole reaches the final) could stop him. awful week for tennis

05-11-2012, 06:19 PM

sad but true my friend. if nole won't be in finals, this is birdshit's tournament

05-11-2012, 06:20 PM
Another joke result on this joke surface.
Can't wait this fu*king event is over.

Now we have a Berdych-Delpotro semifinal. Two true claycourters here.

05-11-2012, 06:49 PM
The natural order of the universe has been restored.

05-11-2012, 06:51 PM
Berdych was solid and that was it. Nando had nothing left on the tank.

05-11-2012, 06:55 PM
verdaco probly felt like he won RG yesterday

05-11-2012, 07:34 PM
:haha: The minute I saw that over the top celebration following the Rafa win I knew Nando would be in serious trouble in his next match. Too much emotional energy spent. HOWEVER I have to say Tomas absolutely adores this surface. I bet he will go on a one man campaign to keep this in the calendar for as long as possible. I look forward to the Del Potro clash. That is the final right there!

05-11-2012, 08:37 PM
Good for the game.

Good for the game that the unsportsmanlike player won? :stupid:

05-11-2012, 09:00 PM
sad but true my friend. if nole won't be in finals, this is birdshit's tournamentNah mate, it's far from sure Berdy will even win his semi vs Delpo.

But either way Olderer will take the title. He's playing smart tennis for this surface.

05-11-2012, 09:09 PM
Apparently birdshit match-ups with the blue horseshit pretty well.

05-11-2012, 09:10 PM
Nah mate, it's far from sure Berdy will even win his semi vs Delpo.

But either way Olderer will take the title. He's playing smart tennis for this surface.

nah... Birdshit always flukes ballbashing day against Fed . and Fed didn't impress me with anything . wouldn't be shocked if he loses to tipsy first

cheers Dasco, you did your job this week, now get lost :wavey:

good to see Berdy doing well here, have the crowds here forgave him for the Nadal ssshhh all those years ago ;) remember them whistling him to death the next day v Gonzo

05-12-2012, 12:12 AM
Verdasco bandwagon crashes...

The surface seems to suit Berdych's game, but Del Pussy will be tough.

The bandwagon derailed one more time...
Tabasco is so unconstant that he can't play 2 good matches in a row
