ATP NEWS | 12 October 2011
World No. 47 Kei Nishikori denied Jo-Wilfried Tsonga the chance to accrue valuable points in the Battle for London as he defeated the fourth-seeded Frenchman 6-7(1), 6-4, 6-4 on Wednesday in the second round of the Shanghai Rolex Masters.
Tsonga’s fellow London contender Tomas Berdych fared better. The sixth seed defeated fellow Czech Radek Stepanek 6-4, 6-3 in 77 minutes, breaking serve three times from six opportunities and winning 90 per cent of points behind his first serve.
The 26-year-old Berdych is on track to qualify for the season finale for the second successive year. He is currently in seventh position in the South African Airways 2011 ATP Year-To-Date Rankings after ending a 29-month title drought with victory at the China Open in Beijing (d. Cilic) last week.
Berdych will next face Spaniard Feliciano Lopez, who battled past Alex Bogomolov Jr. of the United States 7-6(4), 3-6, 6-3 in just over two hours and 30 minutes. This season's Serbia Open 2011 finalist has a 32-23 match record on the season.
If you listen to Eminem ‘Lose Yourself’....what does this song mean?
The song is about having one shot and being able to take it.
It means you only get one life, and like...don't miss out on it.
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
Take risks. Don't Give Up. Believe In Yourself. Keep trying, Show your true potential.
Don't Let Anyone Bring You Down. No Matter What.
6th seed, Tomas Berdych has booked his place in No.6 of Barclays ATP World Tour Finals on Wednesday beating Radek Stepanek and will be facing a huge test tomorrow against Feliciano Lopez to reach the quarterfinals of the 2011 Shanghai Masters
