In replay, Berdych didn’t get to the ball before it bounced twice.
According to the AP, Berdych said, “What are you talking about?”
“Have you ever had a racket in your hand?” he continued. “This is a horrible call. This is absolutely horrible call. There is absolutely no explanation.
“If it bounced twice,” he said, “it is impossible to hit a shot like that.”
Berdych, who was up a break at the time in the third set, went on to lose the set and the match in a tiebreaker.
