Tomas played the best tennis that he can produce just to choke the Tb like that hoorendous misstakes. Nole was really mental strong offcourse but damn he is not even near his form from earlier and the serve is a joke again.
Wrong, serve was quite good actually, kept him alive repeatedly in crucial times

Tough loss for Berdych. Had Djoker on the ropes one break up in the third only to serve up two double faults (at 4-2), then had match point rallying with Novak, and blows the tie-break with some bad forehead errors. Still he had some great patches of pounding the ball.
Who will be #1?
Attended: RG, Wimbly, USO, Miami, Monaco, Bercy, Rotterdam
Berdych choked it and he knows it. Not only the MP but that awful game to in the 3rd when he was a break up. The development in the 3rd was very similar to the Fish vs Nadal match. You knew if it went to TB he would be screwed. And no surprise. It's a shame so few players have that extra clutchfactor in the 3rd set to keep ripping accurate shots but instead start to think too much and then when they finally get back to their game the timing is gone.
Berdych had the talent and the game to win but the mental factor cost him the game
Tsonga, Fish and Berdych. 3 of the biggest chokes of the year come within 2 days.
Tsonga didn't really choke it tbh because he wasn't really in a favorable position of winning that match in any moment
Berdych and Fish both missed some great chances in the deciding set and then collapsed in the TB
