    Just shows that Berdych has Murray's number outside of the Slams, but Murray can beat him in the Big Ones.
    Because Berdych is a choker.

    Watching Rafa annihilate Roger is not good, it's painful - even for Rafa fans.
    Most Rafa fans care more about the H2H than the actual tournament wins.

    Very true - he cannot beat Djokovic or Nadal (consistently at least), and he used to get owned by Federer several times, but that changed in 2010 when the latter started declining and was easier to hit off the court. Berdych naturally matches up quite well against Murray, which is quite surprising - you'd think Murray's defensive skills would frustrate the Czech as with Djoko/Rafa

    Guys I have 2 very painful mouth ulcers what should I do? I can't eat anything too much pain.
    I think they might be stress related from all your worrying/superstition during Rafa matches.

    True.

    When Rafa beats Roger, he doesn't always have to play his best tennis purely because of how advantageous the match-up is for him. However, when we have the opportunity to see Federer crush Rafa, Rafa may be a little off but usually it's Federer who plays his absolute vintage best, and that's a joy to watch.

    When they both turn up, then we get our more competitive deciding-set matches.

    Berdych serving well at the moment, difficult for Murray to get anywhere in his service games.

    Even Ferrer has a close 5-7 H2H against Murray and we all know about his awful record against the other 3. I wonder why that is the case?

    Berdych used to own Rafa at one stage but now has lost like 11/12 in a row. It's probably because he is a 'Rafael Nadal' fanboy. Seriously, take a look at his twitter account. The guy is literally singing praises of Rafa. A very pathetic attitude to do that to one of your rivals.

    Another reason could be that he hits with a lot of pace and very little spin. It's easier to direct the powerful shot back into play if hit with proper connection than the one with lots of spin on it.

    I mean Rafa doesn't need to try his best today H2H is so in his favor that he knows the future matches with Fed are his for the taking he could tank like murray and Nole for the US OPEN.
    Also Nadal has a better chance of winning Cinci now.

    Rafa vs Roger on senior tour. Who would win? I honestly feel the older they get, the better the Federer's chances of beating Rafa.

    Poor from Andy. 2 loose service games and after that Berdych didn't have to do much special. No 2 ranking up for grabs now, if Rafa doesn't get it this week he will surely get it at the US Open.

    I want Nole, Fed, mURRAY and Nadal to become commentators after they retire.

    With Berdych's victory, the Roger-Rafa match becomes very significant in terms of ATP Rankings.

    If Nadal wins, he should win the tournament (I don't see anyone other than Fed stopping him) and so can actually leapfrog to No. 2 and Federer would drop to No. 7. Rafa would then be in fantastic position to take the No. 1 spot

    If Federer were to somehow win, Rafa would stay where he is and Roger would need to win the tournament anyway to protect his own ranking.

    Draw has really opened up now for Rafa and DelPo but I'm expecting the Federer match today to be a lot closer than people are saying.

    I was reading some article time ago about Fed saying that he wants to play on the senior tour after retiring. Murray will probably indulge in his hotel business. Poker and golf tournaments await Nadal and no idea about Djokovic though. It'll be nice to see them all commentate together in a match though.

    Murray has been pretty awful at the Masters this year bar Miami. He was a lot more consistent in them before he started winning slams.

    Indeed, he doesn't have the voice for it.
