Paris 2011 R4 : Murray v Berdych « on: November 10, 2011, 10:16 PM »

At 2-1, Berdych is one of the few people on tour with a winning head to head against Murray. Whilst this will be no easy match for Muzza, I think 2 factors will see him earn a straight sets win.

1: Andy has earned himself an aire of Djokovic like invincibility.

2: Berdych is quite simply not the player he was when he recorded his 2w's.

Andy 7-5 and 4...

Should be quite an interesting match I think. Apart from at the French Open last year (which doesn't really tell you much as to where they stand on other surfaces) they haven't played each other since Murray really established himself on tour.

They played two matches a long time ago (Murray won in Basel in 2005 and Berdych won in Adelaide in 2006). Those were the only two matches other than at last year's French Open when Berdych won in straight sets.

GBR not good enough anymore on the H2H? Whistle

You can discount the 1st 2 matches - Andy was just starting out - and clay wasn't his best surface but has come on leaps and bounds this year.

Very Happy  I always think of him being British, just like me Very Happy

Andy scheduled 1st on centre court with play starting at 2 pm, local time, so I'm guessing 1pm start in the UK.  2 am start for me yawn

Losing to Berdych on clay is not exactly a good thing and that happened only last year. Berdych is not your traditional clay courter. He's more known as a hard courter though he has a tiny title on clay. Also, Berdych won this title back in 2005 while Andy never made past qtr final here. Apart from Federer and Novak, Berdych should be his toughest opponent. Andy will have to be in the match right from the start.

Of course Andy is playing much better this year especially lately but still, Berdych may just come out firing. In that case, the only thing that can go wrong for him is that, he's a bit of a choker and Andy is a smart player. I am still picking Andy and possibly in two sets but it might not be as easy as his today's match.

I think Andy will probably win, but I hope Berdych gives him a good test today.  With the prospect of Federer in the SF and the O2 coming up he needs to meet some stiffer opposition now.  Berdych's a cool customer and capable of causing an upset if given the chance.  I'd agree he's a bit of a choker though.  Watched him play Federer last year and had him decidedly rattled after 2 close sets, but then at 4-2 up in the 3rd Berdych just let it all slip away from him by producing too many UEs.  Unless Andy comes out firing on all cylinders, keeps his own cool and his focus, then I can see this going to three sets.  Could well turn into a nailbiter for his fans.

People wouldn't say that clay is Andy's favoured surface but he's come on leaps and bounds since then.  Berdych had a good run last year.

Berdych's run to the final in 2005

En route to the final, he beat Jiří Novák, second seed Guillermo Coria, 13th seed Juan Carlos Ferrero, seventh seed Gastón Gaudio, eighth seed Radek Štěpánek, and sixth seed Ivan Ljubičić in the final, 6–3, 6–4, 3–6, 4–6, 6–4.

Andy knows the task ahead and body permitting, I'm sure that he'll be up for it.
