Tomas "Almost Choker" Berdych def Colonel Youzhny 6-4 4-6 7-6 (5)

05-10-2009, 04:00 PM

3 MPs wasted from Berdych at 6-5, in the first 2 Youzhny played well, in the 3d Berdych chickened

Youzhny was 5-1 up in the TB
good match, getting in good form both of them

Great comeback in the TB from 1-5. An interesting match for sure, well done Berdman.

Good week for Youzhny.

05-10-2009, 04:02 PM

Enjoy the BMW, had enough chances to win this before the TB, but Berdman fighting and winning matches is strange enough.

Entertaining match, nice to watch!

Kudos Birdman. :worship: Your image of Choker is slowly fading. It's been taken over by Youzhny I guess (:help:).

However, great week for the both of them! :yeah:

Time to step it up in the big events.

Why would Youzhny choke a four point lead in the tb after saving three mps the game before?

Typical Misha :mad:

impressive, berdych stringing together enough wins in a row for a title

nice match to watch, Tomas :yeah:

In fact the match can be easliy divided into 2 parts: the one before Misha reached 51 in the tiebreak , the second when he lost it 57. The seconds part was really unexpectable actually.

I would say that Berdych really struggled with confidence when entering that tie-break. He came with really tame (not dangerous) shots in which he made mistakes in the end.

The same way he lost his 3 matchpoints at 65*. Some players are really agressive gaining mps, try to risk but Berdych made something opposite.

At 5*1 something really extraordinary happened. Misha started to hit errors after errors at the point Berdych was down at himself and actually didn't fight at all.

So I wouldn't say he fought till the end.

Nevertherless he played a very good tournament and with the great help of Youzhny got that title.

Congrats Berdych :yeah: Winning three matches in the final set tie-break within one week is remarkable.

05-10-2009, 04:36 PM
great match from both
good to see attacking clay tennis once in a while
If youzhny have won it wolud be deserved....he was flying trough the court....great stuff from both

Dumb ass Youzhny losing to Chokdych expected

05-10-2009, 04:41 PM
Youzhny didnt really use his topspin BH today, he was trying to hit slice all the time, which usually is rather effective against Berdych but not today. Berdych was bending well and was careful on his slices which today seemed to work for a change

As soon as Lleyton got eliminated I knew a mug was going to win Munich and I was not wrong

05-10-2009, 05:01 PM
I dont like either of these tools, couldnt care less who won.

05-10-2009, 05:02 PM
Misha. :banghead:

Congrats to Berdych, was an entertaining final.

At least it wasn't because of something ridiculous then.

seems a good match from the 2 old Rafa roasters

but Misha will be feeling the pain of losing that TB lead

Yes, that was the best Misha was playing in a while. Like I said yesterday, these 2 guys have a lot of respect for each other. Colonel beat Berdych 7-6 in the 3rd in Cincinatti and Berdych won the last match before this 6-4 in the 3rd.

Funny what a bit of confidence can do to the movement, Berdych was moving well, but I hope he can actually show some consistency and I don't mean consistent 1st round losses.

05-10-2009, 05:29 PM
good week Berdych :yeah:

05-10-2009, 05:35 PM
OMG. Misha you plonker. So ridiculous. First of all, Berdych is absolutely a player you should beat. Second of all, 5-1 is a lead in a tiebreak you should never lose.

An optimistic week with a tragic and embarrassing end for the Russian. :o I'm made speechless by both Youzhny and Davydenko today. :o :o

did he get to pick between the car and money or does he get both?

Action Jackson
05-10-2009, 06:23 PM
He gets the car as well.

05-10-2009, 06:29 PM
gutted for Misha :sad: it would have done his confidence a world of good :sad:

always a sad day to see birdsh** winning... :(

Just not to let this pass: f*** you Youzhny for choking a 5-1 lead in the TB.

Idiot clown.

Youzhny must be beating himself up once more... he almost won that BMW! Congrats Tomas!

05-11-2009, 12:03 PM
Excellent news, even more so for the fighting than the title, hopefully Tomas will carry this in the more important events. :yeah:

Nice to see Youzhny playing well again, these two provide very interesting battles.
