    'Bad mood' Berdych rues another missed chance

    By Ian Ransom MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Tomas Berdych blamed "one bad set" for his defeat by Andy Murray at the Australian Open on Thursday when his dreams of a maiden grand slam title were again crushed at the semi-final stage. I was just trying to get my chances, trying to fight for it, but it was not enough." The big-serving Czech thrashed third seed Rafa Nadal in straight sets in the previous round, ending a 17-match losing streak to the Spaniard. Much has been made of coach Dani Vallverdu's part in Berdych's run in Melbourne, having joined the Czech after leaving Murray's camp.
