(Tennis) Berdych books semis ticket
(01-21 15:37)

Czech seventh seed Tomas Berdych reached his first Australian Open semi-final with victory over David Ferrer today in Melbourne.
Berdych won 6-1, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 in just over three hours and will next play either Novak Djokovic or Stanislas Wawrinka.
Berdych clinched the 3-hour, 4-minute match on his second match point when Ferrer's return of serve went wide. The 2010 Wimbledon champion has now reached the semi-finals of every major, breaking a sequence of three quarter-final defeats at Melbourne Park.
Berdych has now won three of his last five matches against Ferrer, a long-time top five contender.—AFP
