Federer said: “I didn’t think I played poorly, but I think he went after it.
“I know Berdych. I’ve played him 10 times before. He’s been able to perform more consistently in the last year or so.
“I wasn’t able to defend well enough or come up with good stuff when I had to, so it’s disappointing.”
Today result means that Federer will no longer be meeting Andy Murray in Friday’s semi-finals.
