If Berdych wins this then beats Djokovic (not that unlikely given their respective indoor records) then all three of Murray/Djokovic/Berdych have two wins (assuming Murray beats Tsonga - if he doesn't then none of it matters anyway). Then it comes to sets and games.
If Tsonga wins, then all Andy has to do is beat him. That would mean he would have two wins, Tsonga one, and Berdych a maximum of one.
So ye, to avoid last day nerves and a potential repeat of 2009, Tsonga winning would be more ideal here.
Tsonga on the other hand would have higher motivation to win the match against Andy if he had any prospect of advancing. And Andy might get the evening match, so he will know what he has to do in order to advance and whether or not Berdych won the match against Djokovic etc. Besides, Djokovic is not Federer.
That's the thing when looking back on this without going into detail on the match. Andy is number 3 in the world, whilst Nole is number 1, on paper, the World Number 1 should win the match, and he did. We all know Andy is sh*t indoors, has he ever even won an indoors tournament? Let's remember also, Murray won the most important meeting of the two this year, so I'm not going to get upset. Hey, maybe if they do face in the final, Murray will win the important encounter, once again.
Do we, now? Andy has the 2nd best indoor winning percentage on tour (behind Federer). He won a Masters event indoors and 8 other titles. His first title ever also came indoors and he has beaten Federer twice (out of five) in these conditions. I wouldn't call him sh*t...
Some people on here get me quite riled up. Much more than this loss. And you call yourselves fans? Pfft. Citicise him all you want, but some of the comments on here, I just can't believe. Discrediting his slam win, seriously?
