Stan was pretty awful in terms of game plan throughout the match :o

Berdych was UE machine in sets 2 and 3 plus his service percentage :help:

Berdych is absolute disgrace to tennis. The fact that he's top 10 makes the sport look shameful. Brain of a bird, mental strength of a 3 year old girl.

Agreed about the mental part. What's even worse is considering that his play was actually of a high level in the first set as well :retard:

So true, Berdych plays his best against Federer for some reason, seems to play utter shit against any other player though :o

Not a good match from Tomas. He finally managed to put the massive amount of doublefaults he did at the end of last year out of his game, but on the other side he didn't serve a single ace whole match. Don't know if this has ever happened to Berdych, don't think it did, certainly not in three-set-match over more than two and a half hours. He wasn't really confident after all, but when he came back from 0-40 in the middle of the third set to eventually win the service game, I thought he'd win the match. He had lots of opportunies, but I think he should really have used the bp he had when Wawrinka served for the second set, played a really bad forehand instead. Oh well, should just focus on defending as much points as possible in Miami.

Wawrinka was crazy on the other hand today. But some brillant shots up but was also passive in a lot of rallies. I was really surprised by the slices, I think second and third set he returned 99% of Tomas' serves with a slice. Still he won the match, so it wasn't the worst tactic. Hopefully he'll put up some fight against Federer.

Soderling - Played like shit against Kohlschreiber
Murray - Played like shit against Young
Ferrer - Played like shit against Karlovic
Berdych - Played like shit against Wawrinka

Which top 8 seed is next? :lol: I'm going with Roddick.

Berdych isn't playing like crap.

His game is crap.

Oh well... We know this could happen.
Troicki gave the match to Djokovic, and now Wawa is giving it to Fed...

Well... Nadal didn't face any spaniard, because all of them would give the match to him (Maybe not Ferrer).
If Roddick def Djokovic, Federer will have his way to the final for free.
But that won't happen, Djokovic is a machine right now.

bad for a supposed top player

you can't say these things about nadal or federer. one of many things why berdych will never achieve something big in his career.

just when i read all the comments about berdych being on fire i knew he would lose in the next round and i haven't even watched a single second of tennis this year.

Damn, I was wrong really though he was in contention for this tournament, Berdych can be so misleading he was flying yesterday and today in the 1 set he destroyed Wawrinka and then went away.

I don't care what everyone says, Berdych loses these matches because he can't fucking serve. He does not have that shot. He did well for about 1 set and a half when Wawrinka didn't have a damn clue what was going on. In the second set Stan changed his plan and started slicing everything and that's the only reason why the match didn't end in straights.

4 all in the third set after missing a shitload of BPs due to poor play Berdych doesn't get one fucking serve in and gets broken.
Just go home and learn to serve.

Berdych was making some horrible mistakes and served poorly in the last 2 sets :o His second awful loss to Wawrinka this year. He really should have won both matches. The "Family Man" moves on :o

now that Lugano challenger has been cancelled, Lundgren will introduce Stani to the great variety of nature's bumpy textures and make him more comfortable to communicate through touching the grass. so Stani, is it Halle? :rocker2:



PS. gosh, he hasn't adjusted his schedule (http://www.stanwawrinka.com/stan/calendrier/) yet. :scratch: :o

Berdych handed it to him in the end. Wawrinka's only merit is that he hung in that second set.

Just go home and learn to serve.

His second serve is quite bad considering his height. He really has no decent kick serve. Just rolls it in.

His height might actually hinder him in that regard. When you're tall, it's easier to get the serve in with poorer technique.

His first serve sucks because he can't get it in even 40% of the times.

His toss is crap.

He doesn't bend his knees.

His kick serve is non-existent.

The only pro-level serve he has is the slider out-wide.

if even Wawrinka is a mug for you, then what the fuck ?

Wawrinka leads 5-3 against Nalbandian by the way, probably Nalby is also a mug in your eyes :rolleyes:

Berdych-Wawrinka was a very good match.

And for the usual comparison between Gasquet's and Wawrinka's backhand, yes Gasquet's one is much quicker and more powerful, but we could see in that match as well that Wawrinka had a very good and solid slice which he always used against Berdych, and which Gasquet does not have.

berdych shouldn't be losing to mugs like wawrinka if he wants to be taken seriously at the slams.
