Sneaking up on opponents. It's easy to take for granted someone like Robert. But when players start taking you seriously, that's when your real level is exposed. We see this with challenger players yearly. Robert's forehand is dismal and his constant hugging the baseline on defense movement is borderline embarrassing.
Berdych is a head-case, the pressure got to him playing someone who was motivated from the home crowd, and he got extremely tired and could barely play in the 4th and 5th sets. One of the top 3 worst losses in his career, but Tomas has some bad history in RG.
