Re: What is stopping Berdych from becoming a Top 4?

Dunno about the going to the net more. Often gets burned badly by passing shots. Also funny to say "his volleying is crap" when the slow ass courts often allows the opponent to take a full swing and send a rocket that becomes very hard to control.

What holds him back is his movement and his consistency. Maybe also should buy a Djokovic egg and add 10+15 more ball bounces so he doesn't have those walkabout service games where he can't get a FS in to save his life/serves 2 DFs.

But his path to victory is definitely controlling the baseline rallies. Going to the net more is suicidal with fluff balls and slow courts. He should only do it when he got the opponent pushed way back
