    Berdych holds off Monaco, levels tie at 1-1 World No. 6 Tomas Berdych secured a critical point for visiting Czech Republic, having rallied to defeat world No. 11 Friday afternoon. The semifinal tie is level at 1-1 entering into Saturday's doubles match.

    World No. 6 Tomas Berdych helped the Czech Republic dig out of a 1-0 deficit following his five-set defeat of world No. 11 Juan Monaco. The 26-year-old trailed by a break in the fourth set before sealing the win in five, 6-1, 4-6, 1-6, 6-4, 6-4.

    After splitting the first four sets, Berdych built a 4-0 advantage in the final set. Monaco broke at 3-5 but was broken straightaway to lose the set, 6-4.

    Berdych ended the match with five aces 42 winners and 11 of 15 break points converted.

    Argentina and the Czech Republic are tied at 1-1 heading into the doubles rubber. Veteran Carlos Berlocq and partner Eduardo Schwank are scheduled to take on Ivo Minar and Lukas Rosol on Saturday.

    World No. 8 Juan Martin Del Potro took the first point of the tie, upending veteran Radek Stepanek in straight sets.

"holds off" Monaco?

Monaco was up 2 sets to 1 and 4-1 in the 4th. Berdych was dead and buried then stormed back for victory!

tough one, Pico

So sorry for Pico but have to say too good to Berdy. I really hope the Argentinians win this one.

Vamos Argentina.

of all the players who have hit the Top 10 in recent years Monaco has the weakest game

Berdych should be at serious disadvantage against Del potro because he played a 5 setters vs Monaco and played a doubles match today he has already played 8 sets in 2 days he must be tired when he plays del potro. lets see if del potro can take advantage of this.
