Question

It's RPS time...

Berdych is rock

Ferrer is paper

Federer is scissors

Berdych is more "linear" a player and doesn't hit as many creative angled or spin shots that get Ferrer out of position. Ferrer is able to make him hit that one more shot to win the point and that wears Berd down, physically and mentally.
Ergo, paper covers rock.

Berdych is bigger and rangier than Ferrer and gets to many shots Federer uses to put away or set up for the putaway vs Ferrer. Ergo, rock crushes scissors but scissors cut paper.
