Wimbledon: Berdych through to quarterfinals; will face world No.1 Djokovic

No. 7 seed Tomáš Berdych reached the quarterfinals at Wimbledon on Monday, defeating unseeded Australian Bernard Tomic in four sets. The final score was 7-6, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4. The win sets up a quarterfinal against Novak Djokovic. In April, Berdych secured a rare win against the World No.1 in the Rome Masters; the only other time he has beaten him in 15 outings was in 2010, en route to the Wimbledon final where Berdych ended up losing to Rafael Nadal. The top Czech female player Petra Kvitová has also gone through to the quarter final, where she will face Kirsten Flipkens of Belgium. The Czech doubles duo Andrea Hlavačková and Lucie Hradecká are also not lagging behind, and will be playing an Australian team for the chance to be in the semi-final.
