Cooling Down With Tomas Berdych

Image from Tomas's Facebook Page

We caught up with Tomas Berdych after his match with John Isner at the Sony Open. Enjoy!

What is the biggest misconception people have about you?
Well, I don’t know what it is right now.  I used to remember when I start my social media specially Twitter, they thought I was pretty boring.  I don’t do anything on the court.  Then when I tried to win my matches, I sometimes argue with umpire, as everybody else do, and then that was all they saw.  Nothing special with this guy.  But that’s my job, that’s what I need to do on court, to stay focused and try to play my best.  Off court, I can show more of my personality which is different.  Now they can see it [on Twitter].

What is the last gift you received?
Hard to say.  I want to think of something special.  Well, I will see my girlfriend for the first time in four weeks.  So, that’s going to be the best gift I can get.

What is the last gift you gave?
I have something for my girlfriend. (Laughs)

If I could visit your hometown, where should I visit?
It’s not my hometown but I would say go to Prague. You will like it.  It’s a beautiful city.  I also live in Monaco which is like a small town almost the size of this tournament.  That’s worth a visit as well.

How do you spend your time in Miami outside of the tennis?
It’s a beautiful city with nice weather.  But I’m here to keep winning and want to want to stick with that and try to do my best.

Why did you join the International Premier Tennis League (IPTL)? (He is on Team Singapore with Andre Agassi, Patrick Rafter, Lleyton Hewitt, Serena Williams, Bruno Soares, Daniela Hantuchova, and Nick Krygios.)
The attraction of something new coming up, just to try, you know I like to try different stuff. I think this is a very ambitious project and to be part of that is great.  It’s going to be a lot of new experiences and lots of fun.  To be with a team like Andre and Pat Rafter is something different.  I am not saying it’s boring but these guys [ATP players] you see them every week. I’m not complaining about it.  We are in the best tennis era ever but it’s nice to see these other guys and chat with them.

Australian Open Day 1 Roundup

Venus Williams was in a knock-down, drag-out fight with the #22 seed Ekaterina Makarova (the woman who took out her sis Serena in the 4th round in 2012).  She battled fiercely, but in the end she made one too many errors and was knocked out the Australian Open in 3 sets.  Here is the *slightly* silver lining.......the consensus on her dress (via Twitter) was two thumbs WAY up and we will get to see more of it because she is still in the doubles draw with Serena.

On the flip side, Tomas Berdych started his AO campaign with a fairly easy 3 set win, but even with the win, all people could talk about was his H&M kit. I thought he would be wearing some of his signature gear from his collection but instead we got this:

H&M Launches Tomas Berdych Collection

Tomas Berdych has been rocking his H&M apparel all season, and here is a peak at his new collection!  The collection is reasonably priced with pieces from $5.95 up to $34.95 and you can never go wrong with the palette of black and gray.  The only thing I don't like is that the gray shirt has a big "B" on it, which can be weird if your name beings with a different letter, like R.

Berdych making his own music at the Western & Southern Open


CINCINNATI – Tennis is physical, but it also is a mental game. And that’s not easy when you’re competing in a high-stakes Masters 1000 match and a Katy Perry song is playing on the stadium sound system.

“It’s very tough,” said Tomáš Berdych. “You’re there. You try to be really focused on every single point. You try to heard the ball bounce and to be really, really in that match – and then all of a sudden you start to listen to music and songs and talking and introducing and whatever.

“It’s really hard, you know what I mean. It’s tough for both of us, of course. But someone’s able to deal with it better. Someone’s not. Also depends on the day, which mood, however you feel.”

Wimbledon '13: Fashion Hits and Misses

I'm a little late to the party here (as usual) but this time it may actually be a good thing. Because I refuse to review people who have already lost, I won't be looking at the outfits of Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova, Victoria Azarenka or Ana Ivanovic this time around. Which means I have the chance to review some new faces. Should be fun... silver linings, eh?

We are, however, starting off with a familiar face... Serena Williams.

Bad Boys of the ATP: Tomas Berdych

Bad boys. We love em, then we hate em, then we love em again. For most women, there is nothing sexier than a man who loves you then leaves you begging for more. Endless songs are written about these men our fathers would certainly not approve of, but whether we simply daydream about these rebellious romantics, (hello, Eric Northman), or actually pursue them is another matter entirely.Only one thing is for sure, at some point in our lives we will find ourselves attracted to someone who strays a little on the naughty side.

If you're a bad boy addict, modern day tennis leaves a lot to be desired. On the surface, men's tennis is filled with gentlemen who hug their opponents after a loss and don't spit the dummy when a call doesn't go their way. They don't drink, they don't smoke and they certainly don't resemble James Dean (or Deen, if you prefer). But there are a few rough cuts amongst the polished stones, those who fit in more amongst John McEnroe and Ilie Nastase than the Wimbledon tea room regulars. Over the next few months, I will make an attempt to sort out those ATP players you'd take home to meet your mother from those you... definitely wouldn't.

It takes a lot for the mild-mannered Rafael Nadal to call someone stupid, but that's exactly how he has referred to our latest bad boy. This Czech player has no problems showing his disdain for media, umpires and other players. He is, of course, Tomas Berdych.
