We are today just another day away from the finals of the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters Tennis Tournament that is being played at the famous Monte Carlo in Monaco along the coast of the Mediterranean.
Seventh seed Czech Berdych (L) meets World Number One Serbian Djokovic (R) in Saturday's first semi final of Monte Carlo Masters
Friday saw four quarters, from which World Number One Norval Djokovic, World Number Two and the defending Champion Rafael Nadal, 7th seed Tomas Berdych and Simon moved into for Saturday's two semi finals.
The first semi final of the day is between the Serbian Djokovic and Czech Berdych. Berdych made a remarkable win over World Number 4 and Britain's Number 1 Andy Murray and took everyone by surprise. Berdych won 7-6, 2-6, 6-3. Djokovic on the other hand had a easy win over his competitor Robin Haase 6-4, 6-2.
As for the past record of wins and head-on-head encounters of Saturday's semi finalistsDjokovic and Berdych, the Serb has lost only one of his last ten matches, against John Inser at the Indian Wells 7-6(7) 3-6 7-6(5), while Berdych has lost two at Miami and Indian Wells.
Both players for the first semi final Saturday have known each other quite well as they have encountered nine times before since 2008, with Djokovic having an upper edge of 9-0. Their last match was in ATP London 2011, when Djokovic beat Berdych 3-6 6-3 7-6(3).
Unless Berdych surprises Djokovic as he did to Murray Friday, the Serb is the hot favourite, who is eyeing the title and is vying to take it away from the defending champion Rafa Nadal, who has already won the title seven times consecutively.
The semi final between Djokovic and Berdych is scheduled to be played at 11:00 GMT on the red clay courts of the Monte carlo.
