Very pleasing result, if not performance from Rafa :cool:

Should've been easier, served for the first at 5-3 and blew 6 set points before a double from Berdych gifted it.

Horrible performance from Mr Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh :awww:

These piggy roasters are getting few and far between :sad:

Miami SF: Rafael Nadal def. Thomas Berdych 7-6(6) 6-2 and reaches FINAL

Not a quality play from either of them. Too much UE's and they were struggling a lot. Berdych saved 6 SP's in the first set. First was when Rafa served for the set at *5-4 40:30. Next 2 in 5*-6 15:40 and he did played very well saving them. Then came a TB and Rafa comes to 6:3*. Tomas again saved all 3 of them exceptionally well. Then came a SP No 7 at 7:6* and Berdych stepped out of the court and Birdshit stepped in and served a 1st double fault to give Rafa opening set.
In second set Rafa braked in the first and seventh game and finished the match easily.

Typical Berdych choke job in the first set followed by a typical Berdych tank in the second. Disgraceful.

Birdshit is a headcase. He gifted the 1st set to Piggy with a DF. Seems like he shits himself in tie-breaks, did the same choking at the AO against Fedmug.


After the 1st set was over, he checked out of the match and got his ass handed to him.
Total non-fighter this mug. :mad:

Despite Rafa's ridiculous wastage of set points, a win is still a win. First time over Birdman on Hard, and on the heels of ANOTHER win over Blake. Not bad for a mediocre-at-best hard court player ;)

Yeah, there was some wind and clouds at the start but then sky cleared and weather calmed down quite a lot.

People are calling Berdych a choker even though he had no SP at all and Nadal took the first set on his 7th SP.

OK.

Nadal was superior in set two, but Berdych silently went away in that set.

Shame for Tomas. Tight first set but fell apart after it. But :bigclap: to Nadal for winning through - probably be a Nadal vs ARod final.

The good stretch for Rafa continues. After beating Blake in back-to-back Masters, he now beats piggy roaster Berdych for the first time on hardcourt. So Nadal really settled his accounts with some of his nemesises who made it difficult for him in the past.

Solid performance of Nadal with not too many errors, very weak of Berdych, these forehands today... :timebomb:

Not a great match from Nadal, he's wasn't really trying to dictate play, he served very well though. Deserving win for him :yeah:
Berdych :hug: not a good match but a good run in the tournament
