Tomas Berdych: Has had only fleeting success at the grand slam tournaments

Tomas Berdych: Has had only fleeting success at the grand slam tournaments

Berdych continues to lurk around the fringes of the world’s top five but is yet to claim that elusive major victory.

The powerful Czech player hit the headlines 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 made it to just two more major semi-finals, at the 2012 US Open and Australian Open this year.

Although a very accomplished player, he has failed to keep pace with the game's elite and his head-to-head records with Djokovic (2-15), Federer (6-12) and Nadal (3-18) make for dismal reading.

So far this year he has taken victory at Rotterdam and reached the final in Dubai and Oeiras. In Melbourne he lost to eventual champion Stanislas Wawrinka, while Ernests Gulbis and Marin Cilic defeated him at the French Open and Wimbledon respectively. Apart from his run to the last four in 2012, he has never gone past the fourth round at Flushing Meadows.

However, the 28-year-old is a very dangerous player if he finds a rhythm and his huge groundstrokes could prove to be a threat to any player in the draw.
