Herbert vs Berdych (By: Mulder)
It is fair to say that Thomas Berdych is having a comeback year. The Czech had a bad 2018 ( for his standard ) due to injuries, but he is 10-2 in 2019. He lost only against Bautista Agut who has been playing like a machine this year. His other loss was against mighty Rafa Nadal.
Those hard flat shots are back, his backhand is steady and he is serving well.
Herbert is having also a solid season. He is 7-2, which is better than i expected, i will give him that, but he remains a doubles player to me.
He is one of those guys that still plays the serve and volley game, but when his serve is not on, he can not rely on his volley as he will be forced to play from the baseline.
Besides, i believe Berdych will figure his serve out and Berdych is also known for hitting great passing balls.
They met in Doha this year and Berdych trashed him with 6-2 6-4.
This will probably be a closer game as it is indoors, but i believe that the Czech can win with difference nevertheless.
