After the players traded one break each at the beginning of set two, the score was poised at 2-2. From then onwards, the quality of tennis has gone up a bit and with no more breaks of serve, the London crowd was all ready for a ‘breaker’. As Berdych took a quick 5-1 lead and earned himself three set points a couple of minutes later at 6-3 up, everyone was getting prepared for a decider. However, Djokovic showed his fighting spirit once again and not only did he manage to avert all set points, but he captured the set and match withs some calm mind.
Djokovic has won all three matches in his group now and will be finishing it at the no.1 spot.
