Berdych has always been my favourite ATP player.  (I know its weird I'm neither a Nadal, Djocker or Federer fan) Theres just always been something I like about his game...probably that his shots are so flat, cleanly hit and powerful very much like Masha. Actually if you were to compare Maris's game to anyone in the ATP, Berdych is probably the most similar to her. Hell they use the same racket! lol Hopefully he can cause another upset and defeat the Djoker tonight

I suppose they are similar, but Del Potro hits more topspin shots than them. Plus Berdych and Masha wouldnt be using the same kind of racket if they didnt have a similar type of game.

Berdych-Stepanek stronghold retains World Group status


 



 


BUCHAREST, ROMANIA: Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek have given Czech Republic an unassailable 3-0 lead over Romania in this weekend’s Davis Cup by BNP Paribas World Group play-off. Although they dropped the first set of Saturday’s doubles rubber against Horia Tecau and Marius Copil, the powerhouse duo were imperious in the end, 36 63 60 62.


After the drama of late Friday afternoon, when Berdych had to overcome both leg cramps and Victor Crivoi, the hosts gave local fans something to cheer in the opening set. Tecau, ranked No. 13 in doubles, sent a message by winning his first service game to love; three games later the Romanians drew first blood by breaking Berdych for 3-1. Twenty-year-old Copil fought off a break point to hold for 5-2, and after a Czech hold, Tecau sealed the opener with an ace.


But Berdych and Stepanek are clearly much better than their respective doubles rankings of No. 105 and No. 96 would suggest; what’s more, they went into this rubber with impressive Davis Cup doubles records of 11-1 and 9-2 (8-1 together). And once they had broken Tecau for 4-2 in the second their class really began to tell.


Berdych needed to save two break points for 5-2, but when he duly crossed for a put-away volley to end the second set, it was the start of a nine-game streak that saw the Czech’s up two sets to one and a break at 2-0 in the fourth.


Although Tecau and Copil have produced Davis Cup heroics before – in the first round of 2009 they recovered from two sets down to upset Russians Marat Safin and Dmitry Tursunov – a reprise was not to be. The Romanians got on the scoreboard by holding two service games, but they were making too many unforced errors - three times as many across the match, in fact. The Czechs broke to love for 5-2 and Stepanek secured his side’s place in next year’s World Group competition with an ace.

“From my side, the start was not optimum, but we are on court as a team and Radek helped me a lot,” said Berdych, who turned 26 today and showed no sign of Friday’s physical problems. “We waited for our chances and they came in the middle of the second set. I think the Romanian guys started really well but they didn’t have another level to step up. It turned completely.”


Happy with the win, Stepanek indicated that Sunday’s reverse singles would now be played by Jan Hajek and Lukas Rosol. “Tomas and I will rest our bodies and give them over to medical care, and our teammates can get some experience,” the 32-year-old said.

“We started according to plan, serving well and taking our chances on return,” said Tecau, who aggravated an old calf injury in the course of being broken in the second set. “Then it became a bit uncomfortable to push on my calf, and it took a few games to feel comfortable after I had the treatment. By that time the Czech guys were playing better, without mistakes.”


Czech Republic has protected its record of having only been absent from World Group once since the format was introduced in 1981. The Romanians, meantime, will have to battle once again in Euro/Africa Group I. This is just the second time in six consecutive play-off appearances that they have failed to win through to the World Group.

Berdych stuns Tsonga



 


Tomas Berdych battled past top seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to set up a final showdown with Marin Cilic at the China Open.


Czech third seed Berdych, a runner-up at Wimbledon last year, was formidable on his serve and offered up just one break point in the entire match.


Frenchman Tsonga took full advantage of that to pinch the second set, but Berdych dominated the decider to complete a 6-4 4-6 6-1 victory.


After six semi-final defeats this year, Berdych has finally won a last-four encounter and will on Sunday attempt to secure his first ATP title since triumphing in Munich in May 2009.


Standing in the way of the world number 10 will be Cilic, who beat Berdych on clay in Marseille earlier in the year.


The Croatian beat his countryman and doubles partner Ivan Ljubicic on Saturday, posting a 6-4 6-3 win several hours before Tsonga and Berdych took to the court in Beijing.


Cilic climbed as high as ninth in the world last year but currently stands at 25th, although that represents a significant recent improvement.


Allez Berdych!!!

BEIJING (AP)—Tomas Berdych beat Marin Cilic 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 to win the men’s China Open on Sunday.

The victory lifts Berdych past Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to No. 7 in the world standings and gives the Czech valuable points toward the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals.

It was Berdych’s first finals appearance of the season after losing in six semifinals, and his first title since Munich in 2009.

Cilic of Croatia appeared to be in command in the first set, but was eventually beaten by Berdych’s strong serve and consistent play in the second and third sets.


CONGRATS BERDYCH!!!

Czech Republic have announced the formidable pairing of Tomas Berdych and Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova will join forces to compete at the 2012 Hyundai Hopman Cup. 

The Czech duo is sure to be a contender at the ITF’s mixed team event, which is due to start on 31 December at the Burswood Dome in Perth, Australia. 

“With two top ten players going into the prime of their tennis careers this team will be setting the bar high for the other teams,” said tournament director Paul McNamee. 

“We are delighted to welcome the reigning Wimbledon champion. Kvitova has the world at her feet, and it is a real boost for the tournament that she is starting her 2012 campaign in Perth.” 

Kvitova, who shot to fame with her powerful hitting en route to the 2011 Wimbledon title earlier this summer, is no stranger to team competitions having steered her country to the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Final to be held in Moscow on 5-6 November. 

But the 21-year-old will be making her Hopman Cup debut and will turn to her partner to draw on some of his experience of the event. 

Berdych has played Hopman Cup twice before, winning two of his three singles rubbers in both 2007 and 2008, but alongside partner Lucie Safarova he was never able to reach the final. 

The Czech pair will be hoping to go one better and emulate the victorious team of Jana Novotna and Petr Korda, who won the competition in 1994.

Tomas Berdych beat Janko Tipsarevic 7-5 6-4 to set up a Paris Masters quarter-final against Andy Murray - and book his place at the ATP World Tour Finals.


The result also sent Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Mardy Fish through to the 20-27 November event at London's O2 Arena.


With Novak Djokovic, Rafa Nadal, Andy Murray, Roger Federer and David Ferrer already qualified, the line-up for the season-ending tournament is complete.


Federer overcame Nadal to win the title for the fifth time in 2010.



ATP WORLD TOUR FINALISTS



1. Novak Djokovic (Serbia)


2. Rafael Nadal (Spain)


3. Andy Murray (Great Britain)


4. Roger Federer (Switzerland)


5. David Ferrer (Spain)


6. Tomas Berdych (Czech Republic)


7. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (France)


8. Mardy Fish (United States)



London is hosting the finals for the third successive year, with its contract running until 2012.


At the draw on 15 November, the eight players will be divided into two groups of four, contesting round-robin matches against each of the other three men in their pool.


The two players with the best records in each group advance to the semi-finals and the winners go on to meet in the championship match.


In 2009, the first year it was staged in London, Nikolay Davydenko triumphed over Juan Martin del Potro in the final.

Berdych win knocks Djokovic out


 


Tomas Berdych


Tomas Berdych Tomas Berdych ensured world number one Novak Djokovic’s stellar season was brought to an end on Friday with a 3-6 7-5 6-1 victory over David Ferrer at the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London. A weary Djokovic lost 3-6 6-3 6-3 to fellow Serb Janko Tipsarevic earlier in the day to leave himself needing a favour from Ferrer to reach the semi-finals. Bizarrely, the fact the world number one lost actually appeared to have given him a better chance as it meant Ferrer, who had already qualified, had to win to top the group and avoid title favourite Roger Federer in the last four. That looked exactly how things would turn out as the in-form Spaniard took the first set and twice led by a break in the second. But he could not finish off the job and Berdych found his best form when he needed it most to book a semi-final clash with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Saturday evening, while Ferrer must hope for a first win in 12 matches against Federer. Berdych said: “The feeling is great. It was in my hands and finally I did it after another long one. Maybe I like to be on the court as long as possible.” The key moment of the first set arrived in the eighth game when Berdych gave his serve away rather tamely, blazing a forehand wide on break point. The Czech was going for too much from the back in an effort to out-hit the Spaniard, one of the best movers on tour, and he now faced a major battle to make the last four. Ferrer had not done anything special in the first set but he upped the level at the start of the second and a perfectly placed backhand gave him the break to lead 2-1. Berdych found some timely inspiration to break straight back, a lovely backhand drop volley too good even for the scampering Ferrer to pick up. However, it was not long before the world number five was threatening again, and it was another present that gave him the break in the seventh game, Berdych firing a routine forehand long. But back came the Czech again, making Ferrer pay for failing to close out the game from 40-15, and at last he was stringing some good points together. He would have had a set point had a forehand crept over the net rather than bounced back his side, but when Ferrer served to stay in the set for the second time he cracked, throwing in an uncharacteristic backhand error. Berdych had hit a rare strain of form, his powerful groundstrokes all finding their mark, and he reeled off 10 straight points at the start of the decider – a change of shirt to shocking pink doing nothing to help his opponent. A second break of serve extended Berdych’s lead to 4-0, Ferrer serving a double fault on break point for the second time in the set, and, although the Spaniard managed to avoid a bagel, there was no way back.
