Great stuff Tomas.

Fed played the big points better.

From the little bit I've managed to see on the buffer-stream it was very high quality stuff and a great match, very tight, great serving, quick points. Thomas quality in this match would have deserved a win...

Against anyone else but Roger.

Now, why didn't he play like that in the past few months?

Berdych missed SP's left right and centre in the second set TB and I didn't see the match but Federer should be praised for pulling out another set where he should've lost.

That said, Berdych is certainly at fault and he also served for the first set. Just like DJokovic at the USO, Berdych could easily have had a two set to zero lead but he just couldn't take his chances.

I did, most definitly.

The last TB was SOOOO tight. Thomas converted 1/11(!) bp chances in the match, some of them were SP chances.

Roger too, only broke twice, but that was out of 6 chances.

Berdych for those who didn't follow had 1/11 break point conversion rate for the match, while Federer was 2/6.

Berdych had 2 break points for a double break in the 1st set and then failed to serve it out. Lead 3-0 in the 1st set TB and then lost 6 points in a row.

Berdman had 6 set points in the 2nd set and couldn't close it out, but hey got to take the chances when they are on offer.

Anyone know how many set points Berdych had ?

I really hope Stan can win his tie ( although I wouldn't bet on it), so he doesn't have to deal with all the crap again

So did Federer "raise his game" by tapping the ball and keeping it in play on the big points like he didnt against jokervic?

Six, although it was only either 1 or 2 on his own serve.

That's why he's Roger Federer, and they aren't.

Or Levy says that it was good serving and good tennis overall but obviously Berdych had to make mistakes as well to miss as many chances as he did.

If some people think Berdych choked, just watch Jankovic VS Szavay, where Jankovic led 7-6, 5-1 and had championship point, and has now lost 9 games in a row

That many break chances and set points missed can't be all due to Federer's greatness.

Looks like it's all up to Stepanek and if he wins, then watch all the crap that will be written about Wawrinka.
