So Berdych takes the second set and gives Novak more competition. Looks like I shall be getting up in the wee small hours again too - Fed is so favoured all the time but his draw hasn't worked out quite as easy as Andy's - so far\that is - and that makes a change.

Yeah, DJokovic looking better than his last match but then hard to be worse, but Berdych just not able to do anything.

Almagro served for the match three times.

That's taking the term choking to epic proportions.

Well, Berdych put up a teensy fight today, and then he turned tail and did his usual 'roll over and stick my legs in the air' thing to Djokovic. I don't imagine myself as a technical whizz in the game, but even I know that he wasn't going to beat Djokovic playing like that. What is the point in doing the work to get yourself back in to the thing if you then turn around and revert to plan A?

As for Djokovic, methinks he looks beatable. I don't buy the invincible thing at all now. If Andy can just get through Chardy (still think he will, and then some) and Federer, he can surely get Djokovic in the final. Knowing the rallies those two can play, I get the feeling that the longer the match, the more it would be in Andy's favour.

I think Berdych hurt his back. He was grabbing it quite a lot in the 4th and grimacing too. But yeah, he was pretty awful today. Djokovic hasn't really impressed me since his match against Harrison...

Mediocre match overall.

Berdych can never win a major. If he can't beat Joker after he's played that 6-setter versus Stan he will never beat him.

Just get through Chardy? IMO Chardy has zero chance. Nil. Nada.

Andy to win tonight in 3or 4sets.TSonga to win in 5 fingers crossed. If Tsonga can't beat Fed hope it's a long tough 5 setter.

No, I didn't quite mean it like that - bad phrasing on my part. Andy will thump him, I'm sure of it, but my eyes are on the semi's. I know they shouldn't be, but they are.
