BERDYCH INTO QUARTER-FINALS


ATP NEWS | 13 July 2011


Third seed and two-time Bastad finalist Tomas Berdych hit nine aces past Teymuraz Gabashvili of Russia for a 6-2, 6-2 win in 86 minutes on a damp Wednesday at the SkiStar Swedish Open.


Rain has hindered play through the day, with a heavy shower suspending the action for more than one hour at 3:25 p.m. local time.


World No. 8 Berdych has been remarkably consistent this year, reaching four semi-finals and six quarter-finals, to compile a 33-14 match record. The Czech, who will be hoping to win his sixth ATP World Tour title this week, won 69 per cent of his service points.








 


Speaking to the media at the end of the match, Berdych admitted, “It was tough conditions out there, quite wet and heavy balls.” But he also said that he thought that his performance had been adequate and that he is all set for more matches. “It was good to spend some energy on the court. It’s a tough transition to be back on clay after grass, probably the toughest transition of the year.”
