(9)Tomas Berdych (CZE) b. Steve Johnson (USA) 6-4 6-2
Tuesday, March 17, 2015 - In just 1 hour and 12 minutes the adventure of Steve Johnson saw an end in the third round of the BNP Paribas Open. In his first ever meeting with Tomas Berdych, the World No.44 was all but impressive with his serve, winning just 45% of the points played on his second serve. With 7 aces and 86% of the points won on his first serve, the 9th seed was undoubtedly in control of the match from the first rallies, closing on his forehand, keeping control of the rallies playing deep and aggressive.
