Hard to tell, it should be very interresting match, both guys have similar game, big powerfull groundstrokes, great serve and net game, but Berdych has better ROS, so i think this could be what will be deciding. Also their play only once - in Beijing few weeks ago and Berdych was better player, he was winning his service games easier, also TSonga generally sucks against players like Berdych.

Tsonga will take this.

Tsonga troubled Fed, and beat Nadal superbly.

Berdych in contrast struggled to beat an under par Djokovic, eventually losing, and Tipsy had match points against him. And heaven knows Ferrer was a break and a set up at 4-3 in the second set before crumbling.

It'll be a Federer Tsonga final. And it'll be a great match.

Tsonga has a poor ROS and generally loses to big servers. But Berdych serve was shit all week. 45% of first serves in. So I go with Tsonga in 3.

The 90's MASTERS scenario would go like this Tsonga somehow reaches the final and beats heavy favorite Fed for the title after losing to him in the RR...I VERY MUCH HOPE that does not happen..

Like in Beijing the real thing that determined the match was Tsonga's return of serve. I think the same thing may be the reason for a Berdych win tomorrow.

If it weren't for a very generous Lubi...he wouldn't even have a masters series title so yeah..he feels the pressure too much..looking at him Murray isn't all that bad

Berdych played 3 tough 3-setters in group and has less than 24 hour rest before semifinal. Tsonga is more fresh and this may decide outcome of the match. I say Tsonga in 3.

Berdych deserves it a little bit more. But I predicted Tsonga/Fed final, so Tsonga will win in 3 tough ones. Tsonga needs to play it smart, Berdych chokes big forehands when he has some golden opportunities, so Tsonga should be able to defeat him via less UEs and a better serve since the Berdych serve isn't consistent as his.

I am going to be at this match at the 02 tomorrow, right at the front (I have $150 ticket)

Don't mind who wins, just want a good match!
