I'm surprised no one has started a thread about this.

Good for Berdych! This was his first win over little Ollie who has given him trouble in the past and is known as a very tricky opponent.

I personally haven't seen the match- perhaps others who have could tell us how Berdych played.

Go Tomas, now defend your title :banana:

First win on ATP circuit... Berdych defeated Ollie in Madrid two years ago (qualification). Today he played very solid game but wasted many break points in the first set. He could won this set easily 6-3 or 6-2 and whole match in straight sets.

Great job Berdych! I didn't see the match but he had 21 aces which is impressive. He had many failed break opportunities in the first set but luckily he broke enough in the last two sets :) Good luck Tomas!

If Berdych could ever sort out the bit between the ears he would be one of the top 5 players in the world. After Federer and Safin he has one of the most impressive tennis games.

That was a match I was very concerned about, it is great that Tomas won.

Yes, it was a tough one for sure and even after blowing all those break points he was good enough to come through and now he should be more relaxed and hopefully make an excellent defence to his title.
