Novak Djokovic vs Tomas Berdych takes place in the Wimbledon 2013 quarter-finals on Wednesday with Djokovic entering the match in fantastic form and looking to make his way into yet another Grand Slam semi-final. All the action starts at about 8.15 a.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Top seeded Djokovic came through relatively easily against Tommy Haas in the last 16, winning in straight sets 6-1, 6-4, 7-6 (7-4). He needed only 25 minutes to win the first set against his German opponent and although Haas came back into the game he was unable to claw his way back.
"It was a tough challenge but I played a really, really good match," Djokovic told reporters after the game. "It was never going to be as easy as the first set and I had to work for my games, I was serving well and returning exceptionally good at the vital times. I am really glad I managed to close it out in three sets."
Talking about his match up against Berdych in the next round, Djokovic said: "I lost to him the only time I played him here. But I think I am playing really, really good tennis at the moment, maybe even better than I was when I won it in 2011."
Berdych came into the quarter-final having beaten Australian Bernard Tomic 7-6 (7-4), 6-7 (5-7), 6-4, 6-4.
Berdych, who is a former Wimbledon finalist, managed to come through his tough last 16 encounter which was dominated by serve for the first two sets. However, as the match wore on Berdych managed to gain more control and was eventually too strong for his opponent.
"I was kind of struggling with his fast routine on serve, I couldn't get a return on it at all," the Czech said. "But after the first two sets I felt much more confident."
