    Berdych defeats Anderson, sets up Djokovic showdown After a tight first set, Tomas Berdych rolled through his third round match against South Africa's Kevin Anderson to book a quarterfinal date with Novak Djokovic at the Rome Masters.

    It was a clean match from the Czech Republic's Tomas Berdych, who finished his round of 16 match with 25 winners and just seven unforced errors to post a 7-5, 6-2 win over Kevin Anderson.

    Berdcyh's win was his fourth this season over the big-hitting Anderson, including another third round victory at the Madrid Masters last week.

    Anderson made the first set competitive at least, with the two men trading breaks of serve before Berdcyh got the set-winning break with Anderson serving to force a tiebreaker.

    But the second set was all Berdych. The world No. 6 imposed his game on Anderson, taking advantage of increasingly sloppy play from the South African. An early break for Berdych gave him the lead. Finally, with Anderson serving to stay in the match at 2-5, Berdych earned a 0-40 lead on his opponent. Anderson played two good points to get to 30-40, but another winner from the racket of Berdych sealed the win.

    Berdych will take on world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in a fantastic quarterfinal prospect.
