    I reckon Berdych will have been watching the Stan-Nole match while in bed, and probably loved every second. Djokovic wasn't at his best, and he also will surely be tired while Berdych will be fresh as...Upset on the cards?

    If you haven't been following proceedings here is a summary of the 4th round http://andbethere.blogspot.it/2013/01/australian-open-round-4-summary.html :)

    Thoughts?

    we already have a thread on this. But my personal take is highly doubt it.

    Get real. Berdych could be up 2 sets to none, 5-0 in the third, and with triple match point and still manage to lose. He won't even take a single set.

    Djokovic won't be tired, ever since he changed his "diet" he never seems to retire from matches or get tired during them. If I were Birdsh#t I would consult Djokovic's doctor sorry I meant to say nutritionist !

    I don't think Berdych can play as well as Dirty Stan did. That was a master class in tennis. The match of his life.

    It all depends on how Novak recovers, which I'm sure will be 200%, in which case he will win in straights

    I'm not sure...granted he has a terrible record against Djoko :p but the courts are a bit quicker than usual which should play to his advantage. For sure Djokovic is the favourite but it's far from a foregone conclusion

    Even if Djokovic went through a tough and long match against Stan, I doubt this will affect him all that much against Berdych. With his diet + trainer + physio etc...Novak will have enough time to recover. Berdych never had a great record against Novak and he also didn't face much adversity in his previous matches. I'll take Djoko in 3.

    Berdych in 4...djokovic was looking pretty tired at the end of the stan match - i know it was a marathon, but he never struggles like that. i was surprised, not only by stan's tennis, but by Djokovic's failure to out-endure him sooner - stan admitted that he was cramping as early as the 3rd set - surely djoko should've put him away sooner?

    He's playing possum. He was not tired, does not get tired, and is always fresher than his opponent is no matter if the match goes on for 2 weeks straight. I wonder if him coming out fresh as a daisy tonight will finally start making these fanboy commentators and the fans in denial start questioning how his unrelenting stamina is remotely possible? Hopefully, it does.

    LOL! There you have it everyone. Clarky21 wouldn't be surprised if Djokovic won a triple golden set tomorrow. That's sums up her intelligence right here.

    On a serious note, is someone who believes in (anti)jinxing to a point that she feels she needs to do it 24/7 mentally ill and needs to seek professional help? I am concerned...

    Berdych will be well-rested after his cruise through all his previous matches. He will come out strong in the beginning, but if he doesn't finish it then...well then it's over.

    Clarky21 is one of the most unsettling posters on a tennis forum I've ever seen. I genuinely fear for Nadal if Clarky21 is a regular spectator during Nadal's tennis matches. :mad: I hope Nadal's bodyguards are ready to catch Clarky21 if he tries to pull a Seles attack. :p

    Dudeski is stalking me yet again. Even having him on ignore doesn't stop his obsession with me. Something is definitely off in this guy's head. It's quite frightening to be honest.

    I partly agree with your doubts over djokovic's stamina...maybe something changed before this tournament, cough lance cough, and that is why he's maybe not as strong :p

    Djokovic couldn't fight Murray to the end in their USO match. Somebody got tired that day and it wasn't Murray. Djokovic managed to take it to 5 sets but his 5th set effort was that of a tired man.

    On the bright side!

    I don't think you'll have to worry about Nadal's matches much longer.

    It wouldn't surprise me either. I'm expecting it. And I'm definitely expecting it more than you - so Berdych is cursed.

    Are you going to burn 10 cats, to alleviate this curse I've put on Berdych?

    I never worry about Nadal's matches. I, like Nadal, am mentally strong. I don't worry about anything in life, and never have. Worrying is for federer and Djokovic (who lost the mental edge in their head-to-head just under a year ago, in the tight 5th set at AustralianOpen2012). :p

    If he does that how can we doubt he's doing PEDs?

    He is not using any PEDs that Nadal or Murray or Ferrer or Federer aren't. Nadaltards are simply butthurt that Djokovic took over from Nadal as the fittest and mentally toughest player on the tour. That's all there is to it.

    Love me some berdych (at times), but for whatever reason he chokes unless hes playing Rog. He won't beat Nole

    I think it's possible Berdych could take out Djokovic, and Ferrer Berdych, making his first slam final (he deserves it).

    Ferrer does not deserve a Slam. He is not handsome, not good looking, nothing elegant about his play, his serve is awkward, his strokes are awkward. Certainly not someone you want to show to the other sports as your top player. Quite embarrassing.

    Quite right Sureshs. Nor does he have ENOUGH of a never say die attitude, not enough of a muscular physique, not left handed, not humble enough.

    He made the Wimbledon 2010 final. I think Berdych could do it if he brings his A game and hits Djokovic off the court.

    Grass is Djokers worst surface and Hard courts are his best.

    So even if Berdych plays at high level, Djoker will be able to give his best to counter him. So donot compare Wimbly 2010 to now. Also 2010 was Djokers worst year. He has made lots od adjustments and improvements since then.

    What? 'nsk'? I'm here to talk tennis, not make false, paranoid accusations. :mad:

    Berdych is Nadal's pet, but Berdych stands more of a chance against Djokovic than Nadal, since Nadal has WON all their matches since 2006, whereas Berdych beat Djokovic in 2010. :p

    I really doubt Novak is going to show any visible signs of fatigue. With that said, I think Berdych has a shot at taking him out. If he's playing well he has a shot at taking anyone out.

    Ferrer is the most undeserving candidate to be in the final. This guy simply cannot beat the top 4 no matter what.

    Now don't bring his AO 2011 result vs. Nadal. that was just an abberation!

    I didn't actually mention that Berdych beat Djokovic in the semi's of Wimbledon 2010, so not sure why you're telling me not to mention something I didn't actually say...

    Needless to say if Djokovic gives his best I expect him to win in 4 sets at the most. However I won't be surprised if he's tired and has to fight.

    Ferrer is actually 5-6 vs Murray, so he's got a better shot than most.

    He's never beaten Fed, and he's something like 3-17 against Djoko. With some luck, (Berdych taking out Djoko, Murray taking out Fed) he's got a shot.
