Berdych ends Novak’s run at Wimbledon!

  Third-seeded Novak Djokovic failed in attempt to reach his third career Grand Slam final and first at Wimbledon. No.12 seed Czech Tomas Berdych defeated him in straight sets 6-3, 7-6 (9), 6-3 in 2 hours and 18 minutes.
  Novak pushed Berdych to deuce in the fifth game of the opening set, but the Czech rescued the situation by throwing down an ace before a second ace saw him hold. We saw the first break of the match in the sixth game when Djokovic handed two break points to Berdych with a few groundstroke errors. The Serb hit the net with a forehand and the Czech player wrapped up the set 6-3 in 33 minutes.
  Nole faced three break points in eleventh game of the second set. He saved one, but missed an overhead smash with a shot miss that flied long. Berdych was serving for the set when Nole fought back using his third chance to level to 6-6, and the set went to a tie-breaker. A double fault by Djokovic brought up four set points for the Czech at 6-2, but the Serb saved all four and earned himself a set point winning fifth point in a row for 7-6. Novak had one more chance to level the match, but Berdych saved it with a big serve before a double fault from Djokovic saw him take the set 11-9 for a 2-0 lead.
  A double fault from the 23-year-old Belgrade native in the eighth game of the third set brought up break point for Berdych and another double fault followed it. Suddenly Berdych was serving for a place in the Wimbledon final. The Czech closed the set and match 6-3.
" I want to congratulate him," said Novak. " He played a great match and a great tournament. He's just a better player today on the court. "
