Total change of plan just to just finish this event today, both Simon and Gonzalez will play each other with the winner going to the final and also Gulbis and Isner will play each other to make the final. Bellucci and Federer will just play a dead rubber kind of match.

Time for the exhibition you've been waiting months for. A record crowd of 80,000 people have crammed inside the University of Idaho's Kibbie Dome (capacity 16,000) :eek: . Watch your pockets people and bring something to guard the scent of 80,000 musky people.
http://www.c308interactive.com/uidaho.edu/images/kibbietmb_FieldToClub.jpg
Before the match, the fans were treated to special guest James Blake, who provided a free clinic to the children on how to make the umpire think the ball is out even though it touched your racquet :p . Berdych's best friend, Rafael Nadal, also arrived to read a poem he wrote about Tomas

Tomas is such a beautiful sight
He caresses the Madrid crowd all the night
He enjoys my ass-picking and when I drudge along
I sure hope he doesn't think I wear a thong

Now that the pre-match festivities have ended, it's time to play

Set 1
Gonzalez to serve
0-0
.
.
.
0-1
(An incredible tweener gives Berdych the break)
.
.
.
0-2
(Gonzalez plays lefty)
.
.
.
0-3
(Gonzalez attempts Dolgopolov's service motion, and miserably fails. 30 minute injury timeout ensues)
.
.
.
0-4
(A 3 year old points a laser in Gonzalez's eyes...he is temporarily blinded)
.
.
.
0-5
(The crowd has just realized that it's Maximo Gonzalez playing, not Fernando)
.
.
.
0-6
(A tornado rips through Idaho, narrowly missing the dome. A cow somehow crashes through the roof and onto the court)

First set to Berdych 6-0. Astounding tennis from him

Set 2
Gonzalez to serve once again
0-0
.
.
.
0-1
(Normal schmormal)
.
.
.
0-2
(Gonzalez tries to call an injury timeout, chair umpire Serena Williams :eek: threatens to shove a ball down his throat. Gonzalez receives treatment and Tomas continues to play while it is happening, so he serves 5 aces. However, Tomas also double faulted 3 times in the process, so the game is actually the closest one of the exho)
.
.
.
0-3
(Gonzalez moves at superhuman speed all of a sudden...but Tomas is unstoppable)
.
.
.
0-4
(Tomas manages to serve 4 aces while posting on MTF. What an accomplishment)
.
.
.
0-5
(Nico Massu comes on court to coach Fernando. He tells him to get into never-ending rallies and take a minute between points. A 50 point, 200 minute game ensues, but Berdych doesn't let up in the key moments)
.
.
.
0-6

Stunning win for Berdych...
