Berdych made like 2 unforced errors the last two sets. Please be that solid against Nadal :unsure:

Say what you want about Berdych and his draws, but his consistency this year is bloody enormous. He's basically no flopping this year.

Isner was good in set 1 and early set 2.
Berdych was the pure definition of clutch on both tiebreaks. Even saved a matchpoint.
[doing the face Berych is actually doing when he lost]

Isner was great at return, though he could break Berdych only in 1st set.
In both TBs he had some weaker 1st serves and atrocious ground game.
Berdych all clutch when mattered, deserved win.

3rd set, 6:5 isner, berdych on serve 0:15, first berdych serve called out by the line judge, umpire goes to check the mark, overrulled it to an ace, and hawk eye showing the ball was out
not having hawk eye on clay court the dumbest thing on tour

13-1 in tiebreaks for Berdych. Well done to stay in there against Isner. Also congrats to Isner for doing so well here as well.

It's not. He beats who he should beat, and loses to who he should lose. Also being helped by umpires in critical moments like today, having shitty draws all the time and never getting injured doesn't make his consistency any impressive.

Hawkeye is not perfect. Umpire could be right about this one.

Isner got hosed at 6-5 0-15, but I doubt he was going to break anyways. Berdych is now 13-1 in tiebreaks on the year which is unheard of..

Amazing performance from Tomas again, after loosing 1st set vs this Isner and winning 2 tie-breaks in a row against him - i said this Isner, because this is not random Isner loosing to mugs left right, but fantastic serving - 80% FS had at some time in mid 3rd set, amazing hitting, even returning, this Isner would have chances vs Rafa next round, so really great stuff from Tomas to take this match - normally he can handle Isner pretty quickly with breaks, not today so that tells you how good was Isner today
