Roger Federer lost to Tomas Berdych in the fourth round of the Sony Ericsson Open

Top seeded male tennis player, Roger Federer, was beaten by 16th seeded Tomas Berdych in the fourth round of the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami. After defeating Roger Federer 6-4, 6-7, 7-6, Tomas Berdych moved to the quarterfinal round. In the quarter final, Tomas Berdych will face Fernando Verdasco.

It was a surprise defeat for Roger Federer. He failed to move further in this tournament. His early elimination from Sony Ericsson Open will disappoint his fans. However, this match was full of excitement.

The match between Roger Federer and Tomas Berdych was played for three hours. Tomas Berdych, who hails from Czech Republic, faced a tough challenge in this match. Roger Federer made 62 unforced errors that eventually put him down. He was broken three times by his opponent.

Tomas Berdych saved eight of his ten break points. However, his seven break points came in a tense second set. With this victory, he ended the eight-match losing streak against the Swiss star Roger Federer. Not only that but also he had to loss 11 matches in a row against top-ten opponents. I hope that Tomas Berdych will remember this victory as a sweet revenge.

Fans should be worried about the performance of Roger Federer. Since Australian Open 2010, he did not win any big trophy. Will he retire from tennis?
