How many players can do that?
This didn't look like an acceleration in his decline at all. His movement was good, even to his forehand side: it's just Berdych was able to anticipate his shots and send them back with interest. The forehand errors in the 1st 2 sets cost Fed the match, & I would attribute them to rustiness.
