Monfils at the FO semi last year, and the Andreev match at the US
Open. Every once in a while, Fed has these matches where he has no
confidence in his groundstrokes, just loops them in at 40-60 mile per
hour and looks like a club hack. But he got thru it, so thats all that
matters...

A good thing it happens in the middle of the tournament here and at
the USO. Too bad it happened at the semi final of the French last
year.

Berdych and Andreev were simply cleaning lines left and right and
Monfils wasn't giving Roger any pace to feed off and defending
supremely. Berdych and Andreev surprised Roger with their level of
play, but I don't think he was surprised about Monfils.

He'd be happy for Monfils to be in Nadal's half at the FO this year.
Murray should be easier on clay.

End of the 4th set and the 5th set yes, but otherwise, a pretty poor
serving day. Berdych broke him 5 times, and could have easily broken
him another 3/4 times with a little more luck...

no question that his defense and serve won it for him today. berdych
has a canon fh and used it well today. a lot like gonzo did when he
made the 2007 final plowing through djokovic, nadal and a couple
others. but, like gonzo in 2007 Fed was able to withstand and
eventually defeat the bismarks big gun fh's.

There is a situation when one player just plays too good for another -
like Nadal yesterday against Haas, like Fed against Murray at the US
Open final, like Krajicek against Sampras in 96 Wim QF - and there are
other times when its more about how bad you are playing rather than
opponent. This time it was more of the former than the latter. I lost
count of how many times Fed had an opportunity to hit a winner but he
was too tentative and ended up losing the point by hitting an UE or
letting Berdych take control of the point...

Big Bird was inside the court teeing off repeatedly in the first sets
and Fed was 2 feet behind reacting, being passed and flat out
bombarded; it was one bullet after another with almost no mishitting;
I call that being hit off the court... BUT, it was Federer's defense
that got him back in to the match and then the serving began to find
the corners AND the wide out serve started to click THAT forced Bird
move enough to allow the Tbomb serve to get in... then, the forehand
came back on line... if you didn't think Fed was serving well in the
4th and 5th sets, well, I don't know what to say to that... he was
drilling aces and unreturnables repeatedly... without them he was
TOAST...

Berdych wouldn't have beaten any of Murray, Nadal or Djokovic. Fed
made him look better than he was with his soft groundstrokes that were
looping over the net and sitting up with a sign saying "crush me".
When Berdych beat Nadal, Nadal wasn't anywhere near the player he is
today, while Berdych hasn't changed much. And for the record, yes when
Fed plays well, I always mention it - like the Ancic match at FO last
year when he was just briliant, the Nalbandian and Djokovic matches at

I understand, Nadal & Murray & Djokovic don't lose tennis matches.
Players can't play their best all the time and they can face a player that's
playing his best on the day and lose.
Federer played bad, no doubts, but his opponent had something to do with it
as well.
Have you ever agreed to any discussions/opinions or we agreed not to agree?

He wasn't hit off the court as much as he had no confidence to pull
the trigger - the two breaks in the 1st set were gifts wrapped with
one UE after another. In the 2nd and 3rd sets he was ahead by an early
break only to squander it (twice in the 3rd set as well). Fed's serve
was horrible today - if he serves like that the against Nadal/Murray/
Djokovic, he would be blasted off the court. Fed's defense hardly

Berdych would have lost to just about any player today. All the big
players dream of having guys with Berdych's mentality in slam matches.
It's incredible a professional athlete can be so scared of winning....?

You mean like Sampras at the FO with EIGHT R1/R2 losses ?

Federer won the match because Berdych choked. Nothing surprising there.
That's why his draw is so easy.

Monfils or Simon may have to take over now as the nadal hunter-killer.
