Roddick beats Berdych to win Sony Ericsson Open

Roddick beats Berdych to win Sony Ericsson Open

Andy Roddick used his dominating serve and a smart baseline game to beat Tomas Berdych 7-5, 6-4 in the final of the Sony Ericsson Open on Sunday.
Roddick mixed up the pace on his groundstrokes to keep Berdych off balance while committing only 16 unforced errors. He had 13 aces and never faced a break point.
Seeded sixth, Roddick lost only seven points on his serve in the second set and dropped just two service games in the tournament.
Roddick coaxed an errant backhand from Berdych on championship point, and responded to the crowd's cheers with a thumbs-up signal. He improved to 26-4 this year, the best record on the men's tour.
He also won the tournament in 2004.
