How badly do you think Roger Federer wanted this win?
The Swiss styist avenged his heartbreaking 2004 Athens loss today defeating Tomas Berdych 6-3, 7-6 (4) to make the quarterfinals in Beijing. Fed's quarterfinal opponent will be American James Blake who defeated Frenchie baller Gilles Simon 6-4, 6-2.
Apparently, he traded his tearful 'o4 cry for an emphatic '08 "Yes!" after hitting a service winner on match point.
This tourney is gettin' good people!
