Roger Federer Survives Tomas Berdych, Advances to 2017 Miami Open Semifinals
Now, poised to make it to yet another major event, Federer faces Tomas Berdych in the ATP Miami quarterfinal and looks like yet another rematch with Spaniard Nadal in the Finals could be a real possibility.
The victory was Fed's seventh in a row over the Czech veteran, and he improved his career record against Berdych to 18-6. And he hasn't lost a set in his last eight matches!
It marked Federer's second hard match in a row, as he needed two tiebreaks and almost two hours to beat Roberto Bautista Agut in the fourth round, and followed that up with a near-two-hour effort against Berdych as well.
He needed only 26 minutes to take the first set, before Berdych - battling through a gimpy left ankle - found his stride. Federer has the honors at 1.20, while Berdych is down, but not out at 4.50. But Berdych fought back to clinch the second set at 6-3. But playing against Federer will be be a very, very hard and Berdych is not expected to win.
