Stan for the win! I would love to see him take the title here. :)

Berdych needs to show some emotions. No matter how much aggressive game he has, I find him very boring to watch.
just look at the tennis!

these are not actors in a mellow drama :twisted:

i don't get why Berdych receives hate for petty reasons like yours :confused:

Hate?? I don't hate berdych. I just think that he strikes me as boring despite having aggressive and low percentage game.

Berdy... you can't have bomb groundstrokes like this and not be hitting winners like Stan. You have to gamble, son. This isn't the first round.

If Stan wins, Rafa better win too. If not, we'll see one of the worst final matches in a long time :(

Berdych gets into more of Stan's service games, than the other way round. 30-all, deuce, 15-30 and all that jazz.
It may - or even should - pay off at some point, but so far, Stan has been super clutch, when Berdych got close.
Novak had 0-30 on Stan's service games like 10 times throughout the 2nd and 3rd sets.

Wawrinka has been clutch, but I don't understand why he always gets himself into that position.

Yeah, if he goes down 0-30 to Nadal that many times, the final is not going to be pretty.

I don't know, he has a big mental block against Federer.
Pretty much, Stan only has a chance against Nadal, and Berdych only has a chance against Federer.

Actually, if Berdych meets a tired Fed in the final, he has a pretty good chance to overpower him.

I don't think Stan even has a chance against Nadal, but he is way better VS everyone else besides the top 4 (besides Djokovic) that he will make the final.

Stan has never taken a set off Nadal which is a huge mental block, however he had never beat Djokovic in 5 sets at the AO before, so his confidence has to be high.

Gee nothing but SERVE from Berdych so far, i wonder how he'll hold up if his 1st serve percentage drops, his movement out there in long rallies when Stan's cracking cross court forehands looks rather weak

yeah, it seems it's gotta cost him at some point. we'll see how it goes in the TB - if he gets there. Birdman has been serving really well in this set.

This the real final. Whoever wins this match will be the champion. Each of those two clowns who play tomorrow will be toast.

You mean the smooth, flowing, effortless levels of pace, accuracy and penetration?

Wawa may feel the physical and mental exhaustion from his previous match as this match goes on. Berd on the other hand is relatively fresh.
