    Great volley from Tsonga, I thought it was Berdych's point initially.

    Maybe, but it was nevertheless the right tactical decision to make ( I'd think the same even if it didn't pay off), he had to mix it up and pressure Berdman

    Not a good timing for a double fault Jo.

    Well done, Berdych. Will Tsonga take another risk?
    Great serve, haha!

    Gotta say: that's some very clutch serving.

    Tsonga takes the breaker! He saves a match point on the way.

    If Tsonga wins this match it would be the biggest daylight robbery since the great train robbery of 1963. :)

    What's this thing about Berdych losing 2nd set tiebreaks? :lol: It's the 3rd time this week already.

    Jo really gutted this set out, Berdman was cruising on his service game and was constantly pressuring Jo's serve but came up short in tiebreak.

    Tsonga back on level terms...

    Berdych still has the upper hand if he can stay the course mentally... will he be able?!

    And with Tsonga saving match points? He saved like 5 against Tomic.

    Some stats there! Shows how great the match is...
    And they're playing 'Chain of fools' again? I'm starting to think that's the only song they have rights for...

    Oh boy, Berdych dropped just 4 points on serve in the entire set and was a constant threat in Tsonga's service games. That's gotta hurt.

    Clutch serving from Tsonga though, it reminds me of his match against Tomic earlier this week, where he saved 5 MP's. Is he destined to win the title?

    If Jo wins this one, when was the last time a player saved MP's in more than one match along their way to the title?

    I can't belive how much great tennis we're being robbed of by the ATP because of the joke surfaces that are favored nowadays.

    I think so, but I'm not sure anymore.
    I do know he had 20 winners and only 9(!) UE's. Not bad if you ask me.

    Awesome all-court play from Jo to earn a BP (don't see that very often these days).

    Jo breaks.

    berdych complains to umpire about tsonga... thinks he's bouncing too much during service, rosol style...

    tomas is losing focus. he needs to get back on track and win these matches instead of worrying about things outside his control.

    I'm happy to see that, he was looking too damn strong for my liking and he's in Fed's half in Dubai.:twisted:

    But he'll have to go through Tsonga first, anyway:twisted:

    We can twist is around.

    Berdych loses confidence, Federer moves safely to the final. Beats pusher Djokovic in the final. I'm happy for 2 reasons.

    Down 0-30: Serve and volleys, hits a winner by playing first strike tennis, aces and hits a servewinner. np.

    Tsonga holds from 0-30

    4-2 closer to the title
