    Berdych you beauty!!!!!! So happy for him. Nadal played so much better in the 3rd set so hugh credit to Berdych for staying strong mentally. I thought he would crumble in the TB after Rafa saved 2 match points in his last service game of the set but he surprisingly didn't. Well done Tomas for getting your first win over Nadal in 8 years.

    Full credit to Berdych I've obviously not been full of high praise for the man but he clearly had a plan that he executed to perfection so hugely deserves this win (finally) over Rafa

    Murray is going to destroy this overrated mug Kyrgios.


    Murray/Berdych will be fascinating, particularly with Dani in Birdman's camp now

    Hope Murray doesn't live to regret letting Dani Vallverdu go since he'll be giving Berdych all the inside info for the semis and with how well Berdych has been playing that could be the difference... Still think the winner of the tournament will come from the top half of the draw

    Wow. Decided not to watch because i expected straight sets for Nadal, clearly a mistake.

    Other half of the draw is better though i think. Djokovic and Raonic should be interesting and Nikishori vs Warwinka should be the game of the tournament so far if both play to their best.

    Djokovic still favourite and Murray a close second as he has played himself right into form here. But Tomas matches up well against Andy, so the semis will still be tough to call.

    Berydch has a winning record against Murray so I fancy him over Murray although it will be close. Nice to see Murray beat Kygrios. Hopefully this guy never makes it this far in a slam ever again.

    On the women's side..Nice to see Sharapova thrash overrated and arrogant Eugenie. Hoping for a Venus vs Maria final.

    Bouchard needs to break these big barriers in the later stages of grand slams down. Sure hope we don't get a Williams biff off after tomorrow's results.

    Absolutely shocked when I woke up this morning to see Rafa had been hammered by Berdman. Watching the highlights, Berdych was solid, great at times, but he really didn't have much to play against as Rafa was appallingly bad. So many make-able ground strokes dumped in net with nothing on them and he didn't get going till some time in third set. Just one of those days I guess. Great for Berdych to snap the losing streak but he'll still get pasted by Novak or Andy.

    Rooting for Kei or Stan now.

    Their match will be epic, if Kei comes through I doubt a long match will effect his performance in the semis after the way he played Djokovic in the US Open. Not too sure with Wawrinka though, he's been solid so far but doesn't take a lot for him to self destruct

    Just a shame they'll probably be on court for 4-5am, too early. I do agree that it should be good given their styles of play. Form in this tournament suggests Warwinka has a 1% lead in service games won, but about a 13% deficit to Nikishori in return games won so i imagine that Nikishori could be stronger in the rallies but Warwinka could have the power.

    Raonic vs Djokovic should be good too. Their last few matches have had a lot of tie break sets so the 4-0 record is probably flattering Djokovic a little and Raonic's returns have been better this tournament.

    Berdych has a 6-4 (1-1 in slams) H2H record vs Murray so I doubt he'd get pasted by him. He generally matches up well against Andy plus now has Muzza's former coach in his corner. I'd say he's slight favourite coming into this match actually.
