Berdych delivers in Royals' close win over Slammers


In what was the closest match so far in the Manila leg of the 2015 International Premier Tennis League, the UAE Royals survived a late rally by the OUE Singapore Slammers thanks to the clutch play of Tomas Berdych, 26 games to 23, on Tuesday, December 8, at the Mall of Asia Arena


Calm and collected, Berdych redeemed himself after their men's doubles loss, 2-6, to Kyrgios and Marcelo Melo that allowed the Slammers to cut into their lead, 20-19, entering the final set.


Trailing, 30-40, in the ninth game, the 30-year-old Berdych used the Royals' last powerpoint and scored on a drop shot to clinch the match, 6-4.
