Well the turning point of this match is Berdych's second serve barely catching the line on BP at 4-4 in the first set. Good performance from both overall, though Tsonga especially was inconsistent.
It's actually a big difference since Federer is ranked higher and therefore should have easier draws.At least Berd's beating so-called "mediocre" players
Btw, the average rank of their opponents they faced before the QF stage in tournaments this year (including this one): Tomas-54.6 Roger-53.3
Not much difference :angel:
Fair enough on that point Calculated the average rank of opponents in rounds before QF stage of tournaments (inc. current one) for the Top 9It's actually a big difference since Federer is ranked higher and therefore should have easier draws.
