Can Djokovic Recover To Beat Berdych? Australian Open Quarterfinal Picks And Pans
by Sean Randall | January 21st, 2013

And then there were eight. After eight days of sometimes remarkable, sometimes boring play we are down to just eight players in the men’s field at the Australian Open. There’s no Rafael Nadal of course but Spain is well represented with a pair of quarterfinalists, Nicolas Alagrmo and David Ferrer, who will do battle tonight.

Defending champion Novak Djokovic authored another 5-set opus Sunday night to reach his 15th straight Major quarterfinal where he’ll now square off against the dangerous Tomas Berdych much later.

The head-to-heads in both matches are decidedly one-way traffic, but hopefully the tennis will prove better. Here’s what we have tonight:

Nicolas Almagro v. David Ferrer
Ferrer owns his countryman 12-0 in this series, if you can even call it that. Almagro is long on explosive ability with his serve and from the ground, especially the backhand. But he’s short on what’s between the ears, and that’s what you need to beat Ferrer. David makes his opponents work and thus far Nico hasn’t shown he can punch the clock as needed and have the required patience to outrally Ferrer.

Still, could this be lucky No. 13 for Almagro? It could.

Both guys are playing pretty well. Ferrer had a so-so win over an ailing Kei Nishikori but he did impressively bounce an in-form Marcos Baghdatis last week, so I give him a lot of points for that win.

Almagro didn’t have much to worry about with Janko Tipsarevic who quickly retired in the second set. And he did end Jerzy Janowicz’s run in straight sets. But Ferrer is a totally different sort of customer than say Steve Johnson who stretched him to five.

In addition to his sizable mental edge on Almagro, Ferrer also has been to the semifinals at the Australian Open before. He’s got the experience, the head-to-head and he’s playing like he did a year ago. So I’ll lean his way.
The Pick: Ferrer in four

Novak Djokovic v. Tomas Berdych
This was supposed to be Djokovic’s first test. But that of course came two nights ago when Stan Wawrinka pushed the two-time defending champion to the very limit. Djokovic survived the 5-hour slugfest but did his body? That’s the big concern with this one. Given his history of last year’s Herculean effort in the semis then the final, I’ll cautiously say it did.

If he’s fit to go, Djokovic should prevail here. He’s surprisingly beaten Berdych in 11 of their 12 meetings including nine straight! That nine isn’t a typo either. Djokovic has dominated since the Czech beat him for the only time at the 2010 Wimbledon semifinals.

Novak also got him in this round at the 2011 Australian event. But Berdych has kept it close and he is playing exceptionally well.

On a court that should suit his game, Berdych has blasted his way through Jurgen Melzer and Kevin Anderson in recent rounds – not exactly top of the chart guys, but good wins. And he hasn’t lost a set or really been pushed yet. That, I think, should change tonight.

Djokovic looked so sharp in the early rounds that maybe the Wawrinka match was a wake up call. So I think Djokovic had his rough patch already and should rebound tonight. He is super human on that Rod Laver court after all.
The Pick: Djokovic in four

111 Comments for Can Djokovic Recover To Beat Berdych? Australian Open Quarterfinal Picks And Pans

Humble Rafa Says:

You are being too generous. Birdshit can’t win a set.


Eric Says:

Dang, Almagro is blowing David off the court so far.


jane Says:

Oh, I just saw this: Sean picks Nole. I don’t know how to feel about that. :) He was actually right a lot of times when he picked Nole last year. But there is that jinxing history…;)


skeezer Says:

Me thinks Nole will start off slow, but finish strong. Hope he embarrasses the tweety bird.


andrea Says:

hmmm…ferrer took the third. beginning of the end for almagro?


Margot Says:

Just seen Amalgro serve for the match, only to lose the set….shades of Stan here…


jane Says:

^ especially in the blistering backhands! :) But Stan was not serving for the match in set 3 like Nico. Nole won 2 & 3 methinks (blacking it out now… all a blur… ;))


Michael Says:

If Novak recovers from that marathon match, Berdych has no chance whatsoever. However, if he is feeling the after effects of that gruelling match, then definitely Berdych can make a match out of this if he shows his “A” class game. But considering the disastrous H2H of Berdy against Novak, I would give the edge to the latter. The only doubting is about the recovery of Novak ? As regards Ferrer Vs Almagro, Almagro is leading by two sets to one and should go on to win. But in many of the earlier occasions Almagro could not win after a two set lead. So, still this match is wide open.


Margot Says:

jane- meant as in losing bottle


scineram Says:

Once a choker, always a choker. Just please not this time, Nico! Serve this out!


Nirmal Kumar Says:

Novak should be itching to play his quarters now. He knows once he gets through he has an easy one in the finals. Looking at the quality of both Almagro and Ferrer, I can’t see them give Novak a tough set forget a match.

He would lay it all down there thinking he has 5 days of rest for the finals.

Berd is not an easy guy. If his serve clicks he is a very tough guy to beat. There could be couple of gruelling sets and may even go for 4. Stan match would have given a fantastic rhythm for Novak. He is battle tested guy compared to Berd.

Also guys seems to have problem transitioning from day game to night matches. It might impact Berd in his quarters. I will be really surprised if Berd goes away quickly. He might not have beaten the big guys consistently in the slams, but I don’t remember him giving an easy match to them in the last 2-3 years. If Novak is not at his best like his previous match, then Berd has a good chance to take him out.


jane Says:

Margot, me suspects you’re right! : / He keeps relinquishing his lead in this match. Again, now, in the 4th set.


jane Says:

Crazy! Second time broken serving for the match. Deep down he doesn’t want to win, doesn’t believe he can win? Tough one.


Kimberly Says:

I agree with u Jane this is painful to watch


Kimberly Says:

Wow here we go again


jane Says:

Kimberly, HELLO! Miss you around here. Totally painful and rather unbelievable too.


Kimberly Says:

Almagro is refusing to win this match


jane Says:

Well, well, 3rd time wasn’t a charm. So 3 strikes and you’re out? Nico: it must be sooo hard to keep his concentration with this happening. Commies calling him Jekyll & Hyde. LOL.


Kimberly Says:

Hi Jane, nice to see u too. Was kind of hoping almagro would end it so I could watch sharapova but alas it looks as if I will be going to sleep


Kimberly Says:

Triple set point ferrer


skeezer Says:

Looks like Ferrer in 5. Will Nico ever win a big match?


Kimberly Says:

And almagro loses sets 3 and 4 aft reserving for each of them. Painful.


scineram Says:

We already knew his is the biggest loser.


Alok Says:

Almagro had sooo many chances to close out this match because David is not playing at his maximum and he let him back into the match, now david will win it. Almagro needs to believe he can do it against the top spaniards.


skeezer Says:

Is this girls night out? Guess I am the party crasher….;)


Kimberly Says:

He’s got a great game but lacks the mind of a champion. He will always find a way to lose a big match. Berdychs tactless comments prior to Davis cup were pretty spot on.


Margot Says:

And Amalgro only goes and does it all over again…his fans must be even more wrecked than Andy’s…


Kimberly Says:

Almagro has a bigger game with more firepower than David, he doesn’t move quite as well or isn’t quite as fit, but he moves well. I think David’s superior fitness will show in this set.


Kimberly Says:

6-1 or 6-2 ferrer in this set is my guess


skeezer Says:

Yeah Nico has always had a great heart but head lacking….

We’ll see here shortly if its any different..


Margot Says:

Yes, Amalgro clutching his groin and getting the trainer on.
While David, allegedly on 30 a day, just keeps going and going and going….


skeezer Says:

Kimberly,

If Daveed has proved anything in his career its his fitness and his willingness to run fast and hard every point. The guy travels more miles to win matches than anyone. He is amazing that way….


Kimberly Says:

Groin pulls are the worst, they take forever to go away. This match is over. It was over anyway. It’s like a train wreck you are forced to stare even though you don’t want to.


skeezer Says:

This match Is over unless Almagro starts hitting winners left and right. But there is no way he is going to win extended rallies from here on out….


Alok Says:

It’s best for almagro to just forget about winning and let david win, or else if Nico does win, he’ll either give a w/o or be a lame duck on the court in the SFs. It won’t be an SF I’d want to watch for sure.


jane Says:

Kimberly, if you’re still here, what do you think of Sharapova’s form with Markarova on tap?

Congrats to Ferrer, and wow, Nico – you have to take your chances when you have them guy!!


Kimberly Says:

Remember this match for year end awards Sean


Margot Says:

What can you say….except well played David….I suppose…


Kimberly Says:

Margot, not even sure it was well played by David, he was ok but I see this more as almagro losing thanndavid winning, I agree with alok though, fornthebsake ofnthe tournament it’s better that David got through otherwise the top half semi would be a real dud.


Alok Says:

Venus’ lack of energy showed in their doubs match. She made some returns that were awful. I suppose she should reconsider playing singles and doubs, and just concentrate on only playing singes. She used up whatever energy she had in her last singles match. Too bad for them.


The Great Davy Says:

Just setting the records straight everybody. That was fact in not Nicolas Almagro on court today. As it matters in a fact, it was me, The Great Davy, in a spandex Almagro suit. The suit began to shrink in the heat, which to explain the groin tightness. It was REAL bad!!!


Alok Says:

@Kimberly, David was not at his best, as I said above, it’s just Nico not believing in himself. He had every chance to be the winner, but he just didn’t have the belief in his game. It’s best david wins this because he’ll make a better opponent and give his all to win in the SFs, and the fans will see a better contested match, even if he loses.


andrea Says:

almagro….disappointing. but on the flip side, even beating ferrer, i don’t think he could have come out in 2 days and won against either berdych or djokovic. but still, you want the underdog to pull off the upset…


Michael Says:

Now I know why Almagro lose often big matches. He gets the momentum early but do not sustain it. It happens time and again in all his matches.


moam Says:

David Ferrer the pit bull! What else can be said to describe his tenacity. Down two sets to none against countryman Nicholas Almagro who simply outplayed him in the first 2.5 sets, “The Little Engine That Could” DID find a way to win. His refusal to yield is nothing short of amazing. That’s why he won his first Masters 1000 event this past summer and is now in the semis at the first slam of 2013. A player to be admired on all levels.

jane Says:

Sharapova has been simply dominant. Should she meet Azarenka or Serena here, it’d be interesting to see how she’d do; after all she’s been routed by both of them here. Mind you, I can’t recall if she’d gone through her draw with such force on those year in reaching the finals. And, too, if she wins this she still has Na Li in her path; that H2H is 8-4 in Maria’s favour, she having won the last 3 matches (all last year).


mat4 Says:

The more it changes, the more it is the same. Almagro had everything to win this match: the game, the result, the fire power… but, alas!

But who am I to give lessons? The first time I played an international master in an open, I had a overwhelming position, he was in a zeitnot (13 moves in less than 1 minute, I had 45 mn left), and I blow up: I was so excited I couldn’t see a single threat. I lost a pawn but managed to get a draw ending, but it was also to much, and I lost on time 2P+N vs P+N on the same lines, with my K in front of the pawns.

Quit chess after that. I almost died after that game.


mat4 Says:

Is it just an impression, or does Maria put more spin in her FH?


Margot Says:

But mat4, not the “first time” for Nico, was it?
Kimberly, agree, hence my “I suppose.”


mat4 Says:

@Margot:

No, it wasn’t, unfortunately. I am so disappointed by this player — there is a taste of unfinished in his whole career: not only the results, when he fails over and over just one step from the finish line, but also in his game, so elegant, so powerful, but so incomplete, and I don’t really notice a will to change and improve it.


Wog boy Says:

mat4,

How many times you almost die following Nole?


mat4 Says:

@WB:

Four or five times a year at least, I would dare to say.

But don’t worry, I am used to it: I have the same problem when I come back home from work and start lying to my wife.


Wog boy Says:

Join the club. When I got my first iPhone I didn’t know that my doughter activated that app that can locate where exactly you are, so I got cought couple times not telling the truth about my whereabouts. When I worked it out how they know I am not telling the truth I disconnected the app since it was invasion of my privacy. Now I am OK … I can lie again;)
I have to keep it short, my english is not good enough for longer posts, sorry … and my battery is running low. I will need it for after the match.


mat4 Says:

First, never use a smartphone. I don’t understand the need for one.

Than, always deny. The point is in repeated denial, against all proofs and odds. And don’t forget never, and I mean never never, to answer any question. Just deny, even before you hear the question.


Wog boy Says:

That reminds on my fathers advice ” even when she right, she is wrong” though he didn’t follow that rule himself.

No1e is about to enter Rod Laver Arena, talk to you later.
Not saying anything, not predicting anything. Weather is perfect for good tennis match, roof is open and will stay open and I am bloody nervous.


alison Says:

Wogboy/Mat4 LMAO at your posts to each other.


Nirmal Kumar Says:

Novak is remarkably sharp in his return.


mat4 Says:

@WB:

A bit less nervous?

@Alison:

Glad you’re here.


sub023 Says:

Of course Berdych decides not to show up for this match.


steve-o Says:

I told you: Djokovic is pulverizing Berdych. Then he will take the fine paste that is left over, and pulverize it again.


alison Says:

Berd gets the break 2nd set hope he can turn the match into a contest,i enjoy seeing Nole really tested.


alison Says:

Mat4 thankyou.


Nirmal Kumar Says:

I don’t know if Berdych can be blamed for bad play. It’s the pace at which Novak is playing and the returns he is making of Berd’s 1st serves are just crazy.


steve-o Says:

Berdych can’t sustain this kind of aggression; he’ll start to make mistakes. He’s not built to always take the ball so early and have to make 4-5 volleys to win points.

If he lets Djokovic back into this set, Djokovic will win it, and then the third will be a Djokovic rout.


alison Says:

Come on Berd serve out this 1st set,lets see a contest.


mat4 Says:

@Alison:

Et tu, alison, filia mea…


Michael Says:

Well this tussle between Novak Vs Berdych is moving alone expected lines. Novak has so far shown no signs of fatigue and is blasting away returns much to the discomfiture of Berdy. I do not think this will go to a fifth set although Berdy managed to snatch a set. Probably the Stan encounter was a wake up call for Novak.


alison Says:

After Berd won that 2nd set,i thought he would go on to make it really competitive,he had a lot of sucess at the net volleying,but it seemed just a slight lul from Novak that let Berd back in the game,i think thats what seperates the good and the great who have that extra gear.


alison Says:

Probably the Stan encounter was a wake up call,completely agree Michael.


alison Says:

LOL Berd showing guts on that match point against him.


alison Says:

Well done Novak and fans great match,nice understated celebration this time,no shirt ripping thank goodness,funny interview with Jim Courier the Leyton Hewitt ice bath story lol.


mat4 Says:

@alison:

I don’t think Nole woke up. Stan just played great: he served quite well, his backhand clicked, his forehand was outstanding. Since he has more power than Novak, he used it very effectively.

Novak’s problem is that he needs more tweaking with his new racquet. On the backhand side, it works perfectly: he seems to have more precision and power than ever. On the forehand side, he still hasn’t figured out how to use the extra power and spin the new racquets gives to him, especially when he is close the baseline or in the court itself.

Berdych showed that his movement and mental frailty will always remain problems.


mat4 Says:

Anyway, it’s Novak’s 11th GS semi in a row. His consistency is remarkable.


Wog boy Says:

mat4,

I am OK, thank you for asking;)

I am still sitting in Arena, that match point almost finished me. There is nice vine bar on the way to my hotel. I need a drink, actually one won’t do it.

There were two things I use to carry with me to Melbourne until last year when I added third one that will be with me on my trips to AO. One is small ikon of St Nicholas (my family Saint) second one is Serbian flag and the third one is official IW cap that one nice Nole fan sent me from America, they all getting along pretty well.

I think I can walk now, drinks are waiting for me.
Greetings from Melbourne:)

AJDEEE NOLEEE


alison Says:

Yeah nice one Mat4.


alison Says:

Wogboy glad you are enjoying your day.


Wog boy Says:

alison,

I am enjoying, my baterry is about to go flat


Michael Says:

Novak has once again shown that he is an unstoppable Tennis machine. He truly made a mincemeat of Berdych and made him look pedestrian. That shows the superiority of his game. It is not that Berdych played badly. Novak got into his head and he just lacked a strategy to get the better of him. His sledge hammer serves were returned back with interest and he struggle to be in the rallies. Overall, it is a superb performance by Novak and with this kind of form, he for sure is the favourite to win the title. On the other end, Roger is playing fabulous Tennis while Andy is yet to be tested. I think a Roger vs Novak duel would be a fitting finale.


Michael Says:

Wog Boy,

Three cheers to you. Your (our) man has won !!


Michael Says:

Thanks Alison !! But from what is on the table, our desire to see a new Champion would be in vain. The level of the top three or rather four is something outstanding. The distance to be bridged by the rest with the top four is huge.


mat4 Says:

@alison:

You mean

“@Alison:

Et tu, alison, filia mea…”

Anyway, did I tell you that my sister in law is blonde and British? She’s a very nice person, except that she roots for Arsenal. But nobody is perfect.


mat4 Says:

@WB:

I didn’t need to ask. I say you on television. They showed all of the three Novak’s fan in the stadium.


mat4 Says:

… I saw you…


alison Says:

Michael im really supporting Daveed Ferrer in the next round myself,not because i dislike Novak or his lovely fans especially Wogboy,Mat4,Courbon,Harry and the classy lady Jane,but i just think it would be fantastic for David to reach his 1st final,the guys so nice and i think he deserves a break,sadly the guy has no big weapons to hurt Novak with,so as you say my support will most likely be in vain,still you never know i suppose,hope springs eternal,and never has doesnt nesassarily mean never will,so im hoping for the best.


alison Says:

Wogboy when the cameras went to the crowd,i kept on wondering is that you or is that you trying to imagine what you look like?what do you look like so i can spot you on the repeat when i watch it?


mat4 Says:

@alison:

If David doesn’t make it, don’t be sad. He will probably have a good opportunity against Rafa in the FO semi… How fantastic would it be then…


alison Says:

Mat4 thankyou again,your sister in law must be very good looking all us British blonde woman are lol,as for the Arsenal thing yeah enough said they play beautiful football but i could never warm to them as a team except for when Thierry Henry played for them,just like Wogboy im a Liverpool fan.


mat4 Says:

Me too, since the times of Keegen, McDermott and Dalglish.

It seems a distant past now, although I still remember Keegan’s goal in StEtienne, when they eliminated my other favourite club in the semi.

The goal keeper was a Serb…


alison Says:

Mat4 yeah too true thankyou,and funnily enough even as a Rafa fan i wouldnt be too dissapointed about that either,TBH i even think Rafa would be delighted for his good friend,i think its nice to have favorites,as we all do,but from time to time theres no harm in backing another racehorse IMO.


alison Says:

Mat4 yay i didnt know,ahh that old Liverpool side were amazing,not what they were as you say but can still turn it on from time to time,but they lack concistency now,still good betting some years for cup runs though.


Giles Says:

“If David doesn’t make it, don’t be sad. He will probably have a good opportunity against Rafa in the FO semi. How fantastic it would be then” . Don’t hold your breath! Alison is a Rafa fan in case some posters havnt noticed. Alison is rooting for David in the AO and am sure she wouldn’t root for anyone playing against Rafa!! That is not what fans do!! #DreamOn


alison Says:

Giles yeah to make it clear im a die hard Rafa fan,however if Rafa were to lose to David i would still be dissapointed dont get me wrong,but on the other hand i would be glad for David as i like the guy and he would thoroughly deserve it,however its all speculation ATM,we are talking about a hypothetical situation its all moot.


Giles Says:

Alison. First things first – no negative thoughts about Rafa. Only positive pleeeeeease! The man hasn’t played for 7 months and real fans would only send positive vibes!!


mat4 Says:

@Giles:

I know very well that alison is a Rafa fan. That was the whole point in this little teasing.


Giles Says:

^^ Ok then. :)


alison Says:

Giles only possitive Rafa thoughts honestly.


mat4 Says:

The funniest thing I remember about Liverpool is that Keegan left for Hamburger, and then, they played the European supercup.

Liverpool went to win 6-0 in Hamburg.


alison Says:

Mat4 lol you could not make these things up,oh the irony.


Thomas Says:

I really hope that Almagro donates his brain for scientific study when he passes away.:) His choke against ferrer was one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen on a tennis court. As for Djokovic, he played really well against Berdych, and should be able to make the finals at least.


Brando Says:

@Alison: you are a Liverpool fan! Wow! If ever you need a shoulder to cry on regarding them, this jovial Manchester united is offering one!:-)


Margot Says:

Well played Nole :) Made Big Bird look soooo slow and one dimensional.
jane….a little more chipper, perhaps?
Wog boy: glad u r having a …….good time..ish..;)
Come on guys ‘n gals, Nole has far more chance than David of nabbing RG.
Lol Thomas, always think Amalgro chose the wrong job, he looks like an investment banker to me….specialising in low risk…


Skeezer Says:

Bye bye BirdSh!t, way to go Nole! Takes some big kahones to play with that much zip after a tough 5 setter.


alison Says:

Brando lol my dear fellow lovley Rafa fan that you are indeed i do like LFC my sig other is a Coventry city fc fan,however we are die hard York City fc supporters too,yes weedy little York city FC that did in fact beat your beloved MUFC 3 0 at old traford many years ago nah nah nah nah nah lol remember?bet you would rather forget,not would you would call SAFs finest hour;).


alison Says:

Margot it was just a bit of fun,i do like Daveed but yes i would say Nole/Roger/Andy would stand a better chance at RG.


Michael Says:

Alison,

To his advantage, unlike Berdych, Ferrer has a good H2H against players like Novak and Andy. This might boost his confidence and should give him a glimmer of hope. I share your enthusiasm for Ferrer and his winning the title. But it is a tall order nevertheless. It is the never-say-never-die attitude which should shore him up. Although I do not fancy his chances much, but still I hope he will give a good fight to Novak. I think last year he did exactly that and this year too one hopes he repeat his performance.


Kimberly Says:

As a recreational but competitive tennis player one can understand how difficult it can be to close out a match but as a top player one should not suffer such self doubt. That is why the almagro debacle was fascinating. I have been down match points and then you have nothing to lose you can hit out and the other player is simply playing to not lose instead of playing to win. Sometimes they get lucky and you miss but often they stop playing the game that got them to that point. And I have been in the reverse (unfortuantely). But Almagro did not serve and play the type of shots in any of the three service games that got him to that position in the first place. Fascinating. If he could win one big match he certainly has the game to compete with anyone I feel but it looks like he is simply incapable of such a break through. Jane summed it up in her comment, doesn’t want to win, doesn’t believe he can win?


Kimberly Says:

and when you miss the first close out the writing is on the wall and the slide starts. Frequent in club tennis. Should have no place though at this level.


Giles Says:

skeezer. “way to go Nole”. Hmmm. Will you be taking those words back should there be a Fed/Nole final? Huh? Be careful what you wish for, might come back to bite you! Hehehe. Oh, the joys of being a neutral bystander in the AO!! #That’sMe


skeezer Says:

@giles,

of course ;)

——-

Have to give Nole props now for an appropriate celebration after thumping Birdsh!t. Was on his case about the Hulk Hogan impersonation celebration in your face look at me( he’ll never be as good as the Hulk was ). Am sure some may think either way its all good, but just my imo…..kids are watching


skeezer Says:

@K

Your last sentence is the key….


jane Says:

“always think Amalgro chose the wrong job, he looks like an investment banker to me….specialising in low risk…”

Margot, ha ha ha. :) I see it!
