The Czech men’s tennis number one Tomáš Berdych has kept alive his hopes of progressing from the group stage at the ATP World Tour Finals in London after beating Andy Roddick 7-5 6-3 on Wednesday. Berdych, who lost his opening match at the O2 Arena to the Serb Novak Djokovic on Monday, saved two set points against Roddick at 4-5 in the first set, which proved to be a pivotal moment. The Wimbledon runner-up will now face the world number one Rafael Nadal of Spain.
