Falla had match points but Berdych fought back well.

Berdych had to fight off 2 MP's but you can always count on a Falla choke.

Great fight by Berdych! Played like a mental giant today! Congrats to Certinfy and the other fans of Tomas :yeah:

Unlucky Falla. Gave it a good go though, and could have won. :(

GL in the next round Tomas :yeah:

Really great match. Entertaining stuff from both men and very clutch play from Berdych in the second and third :worship:

2-6 *3-5 30-40 - Second serve of the year (ace) :worship:

2-6 4-5* 30-15 - Volley of the year :bowdown:

Fucking incredible comeback, Falla was insane for the first 2 sets.

Berdych with a 2nd serve ace to save one MP, Falla missed out serving for the match in the 2nd, then led 4-2 with serve in the TB, then a DF :facepalm:

Falla had another MP at 5-6 in the TB. Berdych served a 2nd serve, Falla stepped in to attack with FH CC, but just hit the tape. Berdych got the early break in the 3rd and hung on.

Tough, tough loss for Falla, he really had chances here.

Great bottle shown by the Berd. Wonder if he has much left to give though. He has played a lot recently and had some gruelling encounters in this tournament already.

Falla can't seem to close it out against the top guys.

what a match. Average quality, but what a drama :worship: I'm really enjoy it.
Tomas:yeah:
What a comeback, another saving match point win. That guy can beat ANYONE if he beleives in himself. He needs Miami-2010 for Djokovic and Nadal. I'm proud of him:)
Falla...:sad: He deserves big win in his career.

Berdych 99 points to Falla's 98 points won.

Falla just can't close out matches on his own serve :help: That being said Berdych played well in the TB and was clutch in this match in general.

Berdych the mental giant :yeah:

Did great to win this one, Falla was on fire even if he choked a bit. Some incredibly clutch shots from Tomas were needed to take this one. Querrey next, hope he still has enough in the tank to keep advancing.

The only time Falla really choked in this match was the double fault in the tiebreak, Berdych really did produce insane tennis under pressure.

I really do feel for Falla though, his level of play for the first 2 sets was incredible stuff.

Falla won't sleep today, he played the game he needed to play in order to win but he wasn't able to close the match. A lot of people will say that he choked, and in part it is true that nerves played against him, but as some users say here Berdych played really well in the important moments of the match... great second serve ace and excellent volley at the end of the 2nd set. Great fight from Berdych, he will need to improve in order to reach the QF because both matches he has played in Miami were not very positive for his feelings in court. H&M man wants more.

I wanted to beg the mods to simply lock it, not delete it so we could have a bit of fun afterwards. But it was already gone when I tried to post :awww:

Balls of steel this Berdych. If Falla faltered a little bit, you still have to get credit Berdych who played a lot of great shots on big moments. He will be tough, should reach the semi at least.

Falla is a pathetic player. I knew that straight away after he choked away 2 set lead against Nose in 2010 Wimbledon

Good job, Berdych :)

I only saw the 2nd set and some of the 3rd. Nice comeback.
