    Points won by each set: | 25-11, 19-30, 31-25 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    36 % Berdych – 27 of 73
    45 % Stepanek – 31 of 68

    The first meeting of two best Czech players of the 21st Century (so far), who won the Davis Cup for Czechia twice (2012 & 2013). Both born in small Moravian cities (Karviná & Valašské Meziříčí)… Radek Štěpánek [14] increased the speed of his serves (four consecutive aces to lead 4:1 in the 2nd set) after a very bad opener, but on that day it wasn’t enough against super solid ground-strokes of the 20-year-old Tomáš Berdych [50]. They faced each other only four times, the last time ten years later (Berdych edged 3-1 their H2H)
