Berdych leads the head to heads 8-5. Their last match was in an exhibition in December. Tsonga won in 3 sets on a hard court.
Neither of these top players is firing on all cylinders yet. Over all stats do favour Tsonga and that is also the case for hard court stats. Not too much in it though.
Berdych wasn’t great in the last round and having won the first set in a tie break he lost the next set 6-1. That’s quite a telling bit of info. His mind isn’t lined up yet. Tsonga has looked a little more reliable and I favour him to win.
Wait for 1.85 on Tsonga. We should see at least 1 tie break.
