Tomas Berdych: Has had only fleeting success at the Grand Slam tournaments

Tomas Berdych: Has had only fleeting success at the Grand Slam tournaments

The Czech will resume his hunt for an elusive big victory at the Australia Open after falling short in last year's tournament.

Berdych is still searching for his maiden Grand Slam title, despite a sustained challenge in Melbourne, reaching the semi-finals before bowing out to eventual winner Stanislas Wawrinka.

He hired Andy Murray's former coach Dani Vallverdu in December and will try to cast off the tag of 'nearly man' in the coming season.

Berdych's best moment came at Wimbledon in 2010 when, after stunning Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, he fell at the final hurdle to Rafael Nadal in straight sets.

Since then he has been a regular in the top 10, but has reached just two more major semi-finals, at the 2012 US Open and last January's Australian Open.

During the 2014 campaign he claimed victory at Rotterdam and Stockholm, and reached the final in Dubai, Oeiras and Beijing.

But Ernests Gulbis defeated him at the French Open, while Marin Cilic got the better of him at Wimbledon and the US Open.

He qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals for a fifth straight year after reaching the semi-finals at the Paris Masters where he was beaten by the big-serving Milos Raonic.

The powerful 29-year-old is a dangerous player if he finds a rhythm and his huge groundstrokes could prove a threat in any hard court competition.
