Decent performance from Tomas. Too much pace for Dudi to handle, and Dudi went away pretty badly in the third set. Tomas constructed points pretty well throughout, but made some loose errors he'll need to clean up.

Tomas hitting the ball amazingly well. His 4R match vs Delpo could be a cracker if both make it that far (Berdych should make it, Delpo is a question mark due to his knee).

And this also bodes well for Wimbledon, a tournament where the surface/conditions suit him far more; would be great if he kept this form up. Even the serve has been working far better than usual.

I don't like this result. I hope the clay stays fast because I sense a Soderking 2010 coming...

So far Tomas looks the best.

Poor Dudi, drawn the best player other than the top 3. He was seriously out classed yesterday but then again he is a bit of a mug when he's not playing DC in Israel with the crowd pushing him.

There are 4 guys you just don't want to meet in R1 at RG: Nadal, Federer, Djokovic and Berdych.

The usual R1 destruction from the Czech, he always start strong when he's in a good form.

If anyone else had said this you'd be calling them a Fed hater or a Berdtard :facepalm:

No, I wouldn't. I've never liked seeing Fed play Berdych. He's as dangerous as they come. The fact the conditions may become very damp certainly does not make me optimistic with regard to RF's SF chances.

You probably missed last year's tournament here in Paris. Berdych is definitely not among the top 4 players to avoid in R1, he's actually unexpectedly prone to R1 scares (and even defeats - he's lost R1 in 2 of the past 7 Slams) for a player of his talent and ranking. Even in his best ever Slam performances, he had some early round scares.
