Berdych with more spring in his legs than Federer, more aggression and at night where the ball zips through the court a little quicker = Devastating upset.
We saw it in Miami and USO, we've also seen it at Wimbledon.
if you mentioned cincy, USO & wimbledon I'd understand - horrendous perfomances from federer & berdych played well, but miami 2010 ??????
federer had the match on his hands, had MPs and totally blew it .... berdych wasn't that good in that match ....
