Berdych Discusses SF Loss To Djokovic

Saturday, April 21, 2012 - World No. 1 Novak Djokovic reached the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters final for the second time on Saturday as he battled windy conditions and an in-form Tomas Berdych to prevail 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. World No. 7 Berdych had ousted two-time semi-finalist Andy Murray in three sets in the quarter-finals and dropped to a 22-6 match record on the season. It was his ninth loss in 10 meetings with Djokovic; his lone victory coming in the Wimbledon semi-finals in 2010. "I think that the conditions were pretty tough," said the Czech player. "This kind of wind was kind of like there were circles around. You never know from where it's going to come. For my game, it was just a bit of killer because I like to play aggressive. These kinds of conditions don't help at all."
