Paris 2011 R4 : Murray v Berdych

Reply

I'm with our man but could be a tough match as he himself would say.  Dislike Berdych so do NOT want him to be the guy to stop Andy's winning streak.  Come to think of it I don't want his likely SF and F opponents to do so either [though I guess Tsonga might make it to the final and I do like him].
Hope it's not too nailbiting.  Had an exhausting week and could do with a bit of relaxation this afternoon.  So yes a stern test to prepare him for 02 Aileen but not TOO stern please! w00t

So go Andy go cmon yeah cmon yeah

I don't subsrcibe to the "Andy needs a tough match" philosophy. Quite the opposite, in fact. Andy needs a relatively quick, straightforward match so he's up ready and raring to go against Fed, who is also looking mighty sharp.

So, come on Andy, do it in two. May your serve be with you toot

Ok Andy......Berdych will come out 'all guns blazing' today, but we know you'll be ready! Just remember to keep your 'cool' as you have been doing soooo brilliantly lately and let the 'lost' points go!! These two things alone have made a tremendous difference to your game, and to be able to watch this new, self possessed and in control Andy, is just sublime! This could be a tougher match for you today, but we will all be with you. Do you think you can beat him? 'Course you can! Good luck son, now go kick his ass! C'MON! cmon yeah

As I could see yesterday Berdych wasn't serving well in the first set. He had like 4 DF in the opening 3-4 games. Andy is more than capable off not leting Berdych back in the match, like Tipsarevic did yesterday.

Djokovic pulled out, hope a possible Andy-Fed semi tomorrow will be in the evening, so I can watch.

Now Djokovic has pulled out, it's even more important that Andy gets in the way of Fed's route to the Paris trophy. Fed winning in Paris would give him a chance of a year-end no.3 ranking. That would be a huge psychological blow for Andy.

It's a shoulder inflammation as he says. This doesn't surprise me though, it was rumored he only played in Paris to get the prize money for finishing the year in the first place of the ATP ranking. He played with 50% against Troicki and Dodig.

Caz, his serve was right off. Troicki broke him twice in the first set. Unheard of in normal circumstances.
However, poor old Victor must be giving himself a severe kicking  doh

Is that still possible?

Yes. Suppose Fed wins Paris (beating Andy in the semis) and wins London (without losing a match) then Andy would have to better his 2010 WTF performance to stay no.3.

This is just an example. There are many other permutations which would send Fed above Andy.

Yes, but the main factor is the WTF - just can't see Fed defending his title and points. I just don't see him as competitive vs the other top three now. Except Djokovic, who's operating on just one shoulder.

I agree wholeheartedly! No "tougher" than necessary, especially since no day in between matches to recover.
