Fed was very good today. Used the slice brilliantly to off balance Berdych, forehand was firing at about 80% which was more than enough but the backhand was absolutely sublime, back to 2006 where it's not such a burden? maybe close.

All in all the conditions favored Fed and he used it to the fullest. A great clay match from the GOAT and a lot of positives before the possible SF with Nadal.

Come on!
EDIT:
Something I only just noticed, Berdych served 70% 1st serves and still Fed broke him 4 times with 4/5 BPs! Convereter and returnerer fully in da house.

The first 3/4 of the first set were sloppy, but the 2nd set was the best Federer has played on clay in a long time. Vintage stuff. :worship:

The backhand was excellent.

If you want greatness "Rafa", come and fcking get it! Mmmmmmm... promising performance. I've been saying for weeks now that Roger's so-called terrible clay form was greatly exaggerated.

No fear from the Roger fans. We WANT to see a Fedal semi. Cannot wait for this one.

Funny that Federer's backhand is better than his forehand at times these days. Feeble performance from Berdych.

Watch Nadal lose to GOATrinka today. Fedal must and will be avoided.

Probably Federer's the best match on clay this year. Good stuff, especially from backhand.

Sweet irony - Berdych finally serves at decent level against top opposition, yet loses 4 games in a row in first set. :lol: :lol:

Pretty NID. Now 3 times Berdych has failed to make SFs in a tournament this year, all losses to Federer in QF.

Federer must have seriously drilled it into Wawrinka that he has to win against Wawrinka today.

Wow, Federer actually defeated a top 10 player on clay. I'm delighted. By far Federer's best performance on clay in 2015. I don't really care about what happens against Nadal. Fed has already overachieved for me by reaching the SF.
