    Berdych saves 3 match points, makes Dubai final World No. 6 Tomas Berdych advanced to the final after defeating defending champion Roger Federer in three sets. The third seed is through to take on World No. 1 Novak Djokovic for the championship title.

    Third seed Tomas Berdych is through to the final after rallying to dismiss defending champion Roger Federer, 3-6, 7-6(8), 6-4. The Czech struck eight aces through two hours and 18 minutes of play.

    Federer looked to have the match in control with double match point at 6-4 in the tiebreak. The defending champion missed both chances, but took another at 8-7. A steadied Berdych saved the third, then went ahead 3-2 in the final set. The world No. 6 reached his first match point at 5-3 on the Federer serve, but was unable to convert. Berdych kept the momentum to hold match point at 5-4, sealing the win on a final forehand error from Federer.

    Berdych ended the semifinal with just five points surrendered on serve in the final set.

    He will take on world No. 1 Novak Djokovic on Saturday. The top seed defeated fourth seed Juan Martin Del Potro in the semifinals, 6-3, 7-6(4).

can't wait to see the match...hope TC repeats later tonight. My bet was Fed in 3, but Berdych certainly playing tough these days!

As a matter of fact, the tennis channel will be repeating this match. Right now they are showing the Djoker/Delpo match and after that they will replay the Fed/Berdy match.

I am going to make a point of watching that one! I have to see how it all played out.
