  • Berdych takes out Murray in Monte Carlo quarters

    4/20/12 2:44 PM | Cheryl Murray
    Tomas Berdych dispatched the No. 4 seed Andy Murray to move into Saturday’s semifinals.

    The Czech Republic’s Tomas Berdych had a number of chances to win this match in straight sets. The world No. 7 dictated throughout the opening set, reducing Murray to defensive baseline play that was largely ineffective.

    It was a credit to the Scot that he kept fighting. Berdych had set points at 5-6 on Murray’s serve, but the world No. 4 held up under the pressure and managed to scrape out a service hold to force a first-set tiebreaker.

    The missed opportunities seemed to plague Berdych a bit. After playing the superior set, Berdych found himself down a mini-break after a low slice from Murray drew an error. Murray eventually snagged the first set out from under Berdych 7-4.

    The No. 3 seed's lead was short-lived. Murray began to hit inexplicably poor drop shots at inopportune moments and Berdych simply ran away with the set.

    Murray made an attempt to lift his level in the third set after a poor start that resulted in another service break for Berdych. But the Czech was too much into his stride to be halted.

    Berdych moves into the semifinals where he awaits the winner of Novak Djokovic and Robin Haase.
