Djokovic beats Berdych to reach ATP Finals semis

Djokovic beats Berdych to reach ATP Finals semis

Novak Djokovic scored his third win in London after defeating Tomas Berdych 6-2, 7-6 and reached the semifinals.

Djokovic broke Berdych twice in the first set and once in the second, though he was broken right back on the third occasion to force the tiebreaker.

Djokovic hit 130 winners and seven aces and improves to a 73-12 match record on the year.

"I had some chances in the tiebreak," said Berdych. "If I would be able to make it, try to push him for the third set, then maybe get another chance. But this would be just if. It didn't happen."

Despite bowing out from the ATP finals, Berdych still has more tennis to play this season. He will lead the Czech Republic against Spain next week in the Davis Cup final.

"It's another week, another event, another big thing. So I will try to get ready for that again," Berdych said. "I hope that the best moment is still to come."

Tomas Berdych US Open Interview | 1st Round | Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Tomas Berdych US Open Interview | 1st Round | Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Q. You faced 18 break points and you won 16 of them. How did you do that?

TOMAS BERDYCH: Sorry? 18 break points?

Q. Yeah, there were 18 break points against you and you won 16.

TOMAS BERDYCH: Yeah, there is a day that it could go this way, and then there could be the day that, you know, let's say the other way and you have 20 break points and you open make one. It's how it is. No, I mean, it's a good point and good statistic for me. Yeah, you know, these guys, you know, I think he has a pretty good future ahead of him. If he just gonna stay to do what he's doing, then I think, you know, we can see him in the future quite high.

Q. He won 21 of his points at rushing net, and I know last year Llodra was rushing all the time and gave you more problem than it did this year. You seem to be more comfortable dealing with someone who is pressuring you by coming to net.

TOMAS BERDYCH: You just mention Michael, you know, but it's two completely different players. It's no way to compare them. But, yeah, I mean, he's really talented the way what he can play. He can play long rallies from the back, he can come up to the net; then playing, you know, very smart on the net. Yeah, he has many options to do that. But, yeah, I mean, probably for me today it was just more, you know, more experience and more, yeah, situations that I played. Yeah, it's still a difference.

Berdych bows out of Olympic Games

Berdych bows out of Olympic Games

Tomas Berdych was upset by Steve Darcis 6-4 6-4 in the first round of the 2012 London Olympic Games.

"It has always been a dream to play (on Centre Court). When you're young you watch Pete Sampras playing there and you think maybe one day, and today it was my day," Darcis said.

"It was a great atmosphere. To play those matches is why you play tennis and today it was an amazing feeling."

The Belgian won the first set and lead 5-3 up in the second but was broken.

Berdych held in the following game and even had two break points when his opponent was serving for the match again at 5-4 but Darcis clawed his way back to deuce.

The pair battled it out in a long rally, which Darcis ended with a classy cross court backhand to gain match point before Berdych sent a shot long allowing Darcis to celebrate the win.

“It was amazing, you know, to step on the court, to see all the crowd,” Darcis said of his first outing on Centre Court. “Of course, it was different. It was the Olympics. It's also another atmosphere, you know. It was great. You play tennis to play those matches, to play on those courts.”

The Belgian will face Santiago Giraldo in the second round.

"I played him in Munich on clay this year and I lost already, but you know I just beat Tomas," said Darcis.

"I'm playing good, I'm confident, so why not Santiago, he's a great player and it will be very tough but I will do my best and see how it goes."
