I much prefer Verdasco to Berdych, but I think Roddick/Birdman will be a better match.

Well done, Berdych.

Nothing against Nando, but I didn't want yet another match between Roddick and him. Hopefully Berdych will play considerably better in the next round against Roddick than he did during their Davis Cup rubber at Ostrava earlier this year.

:banana: Tomas :woohoo: Good job coming back in the first set when I thought all was lost :yeah: And then p'heeeew he was on cruise control, especially in the second set. The third set gave me a bit of a scare, especially when it came down to a TB but Tomas managed to keep his cool and won in straights. :cool: aaaaah the match against Andy will be interesting! :D Go Tomas!

Any REAL Czechs around? How do you pronounce Berdych exactly? Sound by sound if possible...

The mentally frail and fragile Berdych will lose in the 4th round of a grand slam yet again. This time in straight sets.

Not too sure if Berdman will get to play Rog next round if he does what I think he will do if he beats the duck...LoL...

It's really impossible to write, escpecially the sound of the "ch" at the end. I never heard any umpire pronounce the name right, though it's not as hard to say for foreigners as Ulihrach. I'll try to find a sound of if somewhere at the net and post a link.

EDIT: The way they say his name at the beginning of this video is very close to the way it should be pronouced: http://youtube.com/watch?v=hn0qkAtVBR8

Is that ch any similar to 'chair'? I assume it's like that, only maybe a harder variant of that sound?

Would it be any similar to ber-ditch? Why the 'y' and not a normal 'i' there?

No, it doesn't sound like chair or champagne, I don't really know how to write that sound. Germans can say that (i.e. Madchen, ich...), just check the link I posted.

And his first name has also different pronunciation then you can usually hear.. it ends with "sh" (like Sharapova) and the "a" before that is pronounced longly :D

Verdasco getting broken when serving for the first set was never in doubt. Story of his career.

good result. Verdasco would have choked for the 3454354th time against roddick. Berdych has a real shot.

Thank goodness. Give somebody else a chance to choke to Roddick.

Good for Tomas, this was potentially a dangerous match for him but after Nando failed to win the 1st set he was no longer in danger. Now he is again in the second week, he has nothing to lose, just hope he does not get intimidated and just plays his game.

I wonder if he can win a match without winning 7 games each set to do so

Great, we're getting somewhere. Firstly, I'd like to think that I'm rather good at pronounciation, so don't give up on me so quickly. For example, I already knew how to pronounce his first name ('tomaash'), it's just the surname I didn't get.

So, it doesnt end in hard 'tch' (as in ditch). Actually I suspected as much, even though I often heard commentators pronounce it like this. So, it's actually like german 'ich'? Sort of a hard, nazal 'h'?

What of the 'y'? Is it a normal 'i' like in 'big' or it modifies the 'd' before it, somehow? Is the 'd' the same, normal 'd' like in 'dog', or some variant?

Yeah, the "y" sounds the same like if you say "big", the "d" is just a normal "d" :cool: The only mistakes the commentators and umpires make is the "ch" at the end and the "e", which sounds like "pen" or "set" (they often don't pronounce it at all and make it sound like "bird").
