Del Potro faces Berdych in Madrid semis

Del Potro faces Berdych in Madrid semis

Tomas Berdych needed a little more than an hour to beat Fernando Verdasco 6-1, 6-2 in the quarterfinals of the 2012 Madrid Masters.

Berdych will meet Juan Martin del Potro in the semi-finals after the Argentine defeated Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-3, 6-4 .

Berdych has yet to be broken in 25 service games this week. He lost just nine of his service points and hit four aces past Verdasco for his 25th match win of the season.

"I feel great," said Berdych. "I'm in another semi-final, [the] second in a row. To beat Fernando made me feel great. It is always tough to beat Fernando, even though the score looks quite easy. It's not easy to beat a Top 20 player and he played great yesterday [against Rafael Nadal]."

On playing del Potro, Berdych said, "I'm expecting a really tough match. To play Juan Martin is always tough, he's a great guy and he knows how to win the Grand Slams. He's definitely back after his [wrist] injury. So far this year, I have already lost to him and it would be nice to get him back now. I will try to do my best, to play my game, to be aggressive."

Del Potro maintained his run of form on clay and claimed the win in 84 minutes. He hit 10 aces, won 69 per cent of his service points and converted three of his seven break point opportunities.

Verdasco upsets Nadal in Madrid

What a surprise today in Madrid... Rafael Nadal was sent packing in the third round of the Madrid Masters by Fernando Verdasco who won their encounter by 6-3, 3-6, 7-5.

It was Rafa´s first defeat of the clay court season after he won titles in Monte Carlo and Barcelona.

Verdasco broke Rafa seven times and clubbed 31 winners to his opponent's 19 to set up a quarterfinal clash against Tomas Berdych.

Nadal was up 5-2 in the deciding set but twice faltered when serving for the match and Verdasco incredibly conjured another break when he converted his second match point with yet another crashing forehand.

"After losing so many times against honestly the best player on clay ever, to beat him on clay is the maximum," an emotional Verdasco said. "I don't have words."

"I never was in control of the match, I didn't know how to win a point," said Nadal.

"The movements are very important for me and here I cannot move so I cannot hit the ball the way that I want," he told a news conference after squandering a 5-2 lead in the final set.

"The ATP and the tournament can do what they want," he added. "I tried my best to prepare but I wasn't good enough to adapt my game to this court.

"The only thing that I know is that if things continue like this I am very sad but next year will be one less tournament in my calendar."

"I lost because I deserved to lose today," Nadal said.

"Even when I was 5-2 ahead and I had a chance to close the match I didn't know how to do it. He played better than me and he beat me, that's it."

David Ferrer won the Mexican Open title after beating Fernando Verdasco 6-1, 6-2.
