Tomas Berdych brought Fernando Verdasco crashing back to earth yesterday a day after the local player had upset Rafael Nadal at the Madrid Masters.

Sixth seed Berdych, a quiet achiever on the ATP circuit, produced a convincing 6-1, 6-2 quarter-final win over the Madrid-born 15th seed Verdasco.

The Czech will next play Argentine tenth seed Juan Martin del Potro, who put out Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-3, 6-4.
