Result: Tomas Berdych fights back to avoid Wimbledon upset against Bernard Tomic

Sixth seed Tomas Berdych advances to the third round of Wimbledon by coming from a set down to beat Bernard Tomic.

Sixth seed Tomas Berdych has advanced to the third round of Wimbledon by coming from a set down to beat Bernard Tomic.

The Czech got off to an uncertain start on No.1 Court as Australia's Tomic made the first break to go 3-2 in front, going on to claim the opener 6-4.

There wouldn't be a break in either of the next two sets as both men traded holds of serve and had to be separated by tie-breaks.

Berdych took both, by scores of 7-5 and 7-3 respectively, before booking his place in the last 32 with a 6-1 success in the fourth set.

Twenty-sixth seed Marin Cilic awaits in the third round for the 2010 finalist.
