Malaysian Open – Friday

11:15 – Berdych v Ferrer

Rankings are 7 and 11. Head to heads aree 4-2 to Ferrer. He has won their last 3 matches.

Ferrer has had 2 fairly easy matches to get to this stage and he dealt with them well. Berdych has only had to play 1 match which was against Istomin. He came through a potentially tricky game in straight sets.

Both players are usually very solid on serve with them holding 87% and 82% over the last 3 months.

Stats on return of serve favour Ferrer with him winning 42% of points against serve to Berdych’s 35%. He also converts more break point chances.

I think this one is Berdych’s to win or lose. If he serves as well as he did agaist Istomin ( losing just 12 points on his serve in the whole match) then he should win. Ferrer is one of the games fighters and rarely gives less than 100% right to the end.

If Berdych doesnt maintain the intensisty then Ferrer will have a great chance.

Back Berdych on serve.
