Berdych was the much better player for the first two sets. Bad loss for him.
Jo though, could be the start of the comeback. First win over a quality opponent in a while. Hope he does more damage from now on. It really sucks that these two are in the same quarter next week. They both have a decent shot of upsetting Fed or Djoker given the speed of the court in Dubai.
Great match and great result. Tennis always wins when Tsonga wins, hopefully this is the start of a great season for Jo
Berdych had a great week anyway and good start to the season overall, shouldn't be too discouraged. I hope to see him and Jo clash again in Dubai next week.
Where are those who constantly claim Tsonga is mentally weak btw? 5 match points saved against Tomic, 1 today (+2 virtual match points), won this final with 12 less points won than Tomas (92-104). Clutchga.
