If Tomas Berdych is to win a Grand Slam, the U.S. Open is definitely the stage for triumph.
Currently ranked sixth in the world, Berdych has been playing magnificent tennis at the Open. Although Federer's game was lackluster in the quarterfinals, Berdych made no mistake and took advantage of King Roger's weaknesses.
His last big performance was his appearance in the 2010 Wimbledon final where he faced Rafa Nadal. Yes, his performances have been inconsistent this year, but something tells me Berdych is going to fight for a place in the final.
Murray's performances thus far in the Open have not been perfect. He had a slow start against Marin Cilic, proving there are weaknesses for Berdych to prey upon.
There are not many players in the game who can handle Berdych's intensity behind the ball. He pushes his opponents back, forcing them onto one foot.
I would not be completely surprised if the Czech man got a pass into the final, in lieu of the Scot.
Djokovic would be an incredibly tough opponent for Berdych, but the Djoker has shown that he is not invincible this year.
Both Djokovic and Berdych are equipped with incredibly strong first serves. Djokovic likes to hit a flat first serve, which wins him many free points.
Berdych has proved his serving power is on forum, reaching speeds of 123 miles an hour in his fourth-round match versus Federer.
Djokovic is an all-around player, with exceptionally good footwork and let's face it: he is Djokovic.
But I feel that a part of us wants Berdych to surpass Murray and stand in Arthur Ashe Stadium with a chance of winning.
