Friday, December 12, 2014 - It was Tomas Berdych who sealed the fate of the home side when he pulled off a sensational upset win over Royals’ No1 Novak Djokovic in a tense shootout (played when a set reaches 5-5) that ended 8-7 in the Czech’s favour, and handed the Slammers a 23-21 overall victory. Djokovic had served for the final set at 5-3 but was bizarrely broken back. The last point of the match saw Berdych’s serve clip the net before landing on the other side (which is allowed in IPTL rules) and despite Djokovic’s quick reaction, his return wasn’t good enough and his opponent’s response killed the UAE’s chances of fighting for the title against the Aces today.
