One of my other favorite tennis players. He doesn't get a lot of ink in the Big Four generation, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have fans.

Tomáš Berdych (Czech pronunciation: [ˈtomaːʃ ˈbɛrdɪx]; born September 17, 1985) is a Czech professional tennis player. His most notable achievement was reaching the final of the 2010 Wimbledon Championships, causing consecutive upsets by defeating top seed and six-time champion Roger Federer in the quarterfinals, and World No. 3 Novak Djokovic in the semifinals. In the final, he lost to Rafael Nadal in straight sets.

He also reached the semifinals of the 2010 French Open, defeating fourth seed Andy Murray in straight sets in the fourth round, and dropping no sets until his loss in the semifinals to Robin Söderling,[1] and the 2012 US Open where he defeated World No. 1 Roger Federer again at the quarterfinal stage, before losing to eventual champion Andy Murray in the semifinals. He is the second player (after David Nalbandian) to defeat Roger Federer multiple times in Grand Slam events before the semifinal stage. He is one of few active players to have reached the quarterfinals of all four Grand Slams.

He defeated the Croatian player Ivan Ljubičić in five sets to win the Paris Masters in 2005. Berdych has since reached the finals of the Miami Masters in 2010 and the Madrid Open in 2012, losing to Andy Roddick and Roger Federer respectively. He reached a career-high singles ranking of World No. 5 in August 2013.

He also played the longest ATP doubles match ever, with Lukáš Rosol, defeating Marco Chiudinelli and Stanislas Wawrinka in the first round of the 2013 Davis Cup 6–4, 5–7, 6–4, 6–7, 24–22. The match was played on 2 February 2013, lasting 7 hours, 2 minutes. It was the second longest ATP match ever (singles and doubles combined).

Early life[edit]

Berdych was born in Valašské Meziříčí, Moravia, Czechoslovakia to Hana Berdychová and Martin Berdych. Berdych playing tennis at age five at the tennis center in his hometown and birthplace of Valašské Meziříčí. His father, Martin, was a train engineer, while his mother, Hana, is a doctor. In age 8 reached final of top young boys of Czech Republic in Pardubice and won. Berdych soon became a top junior, winning the Czech Republic U-12 Junior Title. He then moved to the city of Prostějov where there were more practice partners and better coaches. Berdych traveled back home often to keep his ties to his old school. Ivan Lendl used to train him.

Berdych is a big fan of ice hockey and his favorite team is the Detroit Red Wings. He has met many Czech players from the NHL and the 1998 Olympic gold medal team, including Martin Straka, Jaromir Jagr and Dominik Hašek. All of them are big tennis fans and have on several occasions come to Prostějov to play alongside Berdych. His favorite surface is hard court and he considers his strengths to be his forehand and serve. His fitness trainer is José Félix González Castilla.[2] Berdych was in a relationship with tennis player Lucie Šafářová for nine years until summer 2011. He started dating model Ester Satorova in the fall of 2011

I hope so. Do you know who Bertie B. is on TW? She doesn't post much so you may have missed her. She's an astrologer and she makes these predictions. It's quite interesting. I saw someone posting to her and looked at her previous posts, and she did say that Tomas had something good happening to him.

But, she also predicted that Nadal would come out of his down cycle Sept, 2013. And, she said he was in down cycle during 2011 when he kept losing to Nole.

All of her predictions were before the fact.

Isn't that interesting?

Berdy's AO kit is off the chain, at least in North America.

It looks like a referee's shirt, although it doesn't look bad on him. I'm not complaining.


I love Berdy. I just wish he had paired it white shorts instead of red.


Maybe, it'll bring him good look. Berdy is cool.
