    I know these guys are running around, but they just showed the temp was 64 degrees. How can you wear short sleeves in that weather, even if you're running a lot? I would think the breeze bothers them in between points.

    Or at least it would bother me.

    I think wind would bother me a lot. I'd actually opt to wear a ski mask if it's a really windy day, lol. I don't care how hot my face would get, better than the wind on my face.

    FED wins the 2nd set.

    This match is much easier than the score looks.

    Stay away from Iowa then

    Dude, I think 64 degrees is great shorts weather, considering you're playing a high-energy sport like tennis.

    It's 0 degrees here right now. With the wind chill: It's about -20

    And , cable is still out. I am still on the phone, on hold now with a different department.

    So does it snow in Iowa? For many many weeks or months?

    Let me know when you get your cable back.

    Easy hold Berdych. 1-0

    Djokovic doesn't look sharp at all, it's just one game though

    Djokovic is easily overpowering Berdych during his first service game.

    1 All

    Berdych hits a potential winner into the net, then a bad volley. He just looked unbalanced

    0-30

    A lot of errors from both guys. Balls are going long or hitting the net

    Djokovic with a crosscourt winner to finish a long rally. You can't defend that

    Even on his own serve in that game: Berdych was the one running from sideline to sideline while Djokovic was more stationary, and was just hitting killer forehands all over the place. Berdych will easily wear out and lose in straight sets if he keeps that up

    Easy hold. 3-1

    Double fault by Berdych, and Djokovic takes the set, 6-1

    Berdych just seems too slow and not as instinctive as Djokovic. And Djokovic is also beating him mentally, he's switching up where he's going with his returns, whereas Berdych has typically hit the same spot.

    Berdych might be able to overpower certain opponents but Djokovic is too quick for that.

    Berdych's 2nd serve has also been a nightmare.

    They're talking about how the mid-rallies are the key (4-9 shots). Well, I think Berdych had 1 groundstroke winner that set. He just can't come up with winners during those rallies
