He has got further than I thought he would for sure. His body has taken a pounding. He will need to rest up soon. Perhaps he will give the clay court season a wide berth again ? He certainly should
Berdych will win this easily. Us open showed quarter final exit v top 10 player is Federer’s lot these days
Berdych is flying here. Father Time has finally caught up with the Great Man.
Berdych v Cilic Final.
Berdych serving for the first set but the Great Man breaks back. 4-5 and back on serve.
He will go down fighting and there’s no more you can ask of the great man at this stage.
He won’t retire on his seat anyway. That’s for sure. Federer is a true warrior.
THe Great Man takes the first set in the tie-break.
I’m hearing he struggled with double faults in the opening set Geoff…would that be accurate ?
Did he have to save any set points ?
Not watching it at the moment mate. Out and about. I’ll have it on in about half an hour.
Fed takes the first set and the commentators are saying that Berdych is looking heavy legged. Id say losing the first set has killed any fight in Berdych. It will be over in 3 sets and Fed will go marching on.
The Great Man breaks for 5-3 in the 2nd.
Second set to the Great Man. He’s really motoring now.
He’s almost 37 mate. Can hardly be motoring at this stage of his career. It’s his sheer will to win that makes him win matches these days.
Whatever about the lack of Grand Slam trophies in the Berdych cabinet, he most certainly has a trophy missus.
The Great Man breaks for 2-1 in the 3rd.
The Great Man wins 7-6 6-4 6-3
Never in doubt. Berdych may have the game to beat the top lads but doesn’t have the mentality to do it. I would be more worried about the young Korean lad in the semi final.
