Re: Tomas Berdych in 2013
I think he can challenge for 5th spot, expecting Rafa to be back and Ferrer starting decline at some point - or just not defend all his points, Berdych should make all QF at slams-i think he can do it, he is too good for rest of the field to being upset, he is somehow more consistent in last 2 seasons. 2010 was big year for him from bottom top 20 guy again to be top 10 and big RG-Wimby run, than 2011-12 very consistent top 10 guys, now if he can win DC for CZE maybe that will be confidence boost. I think he can reach all slam QF with his ranking, look at this year AO-QF almost defeated Rafa, RG-unlucky with seedings that Delpo was 9-12 and he is just tough match-up for him, but this won´t happen again with Delpo top 8 ranking too, Wimbledon - people can say what they want, but Berdych played good match and most likely would have been in QF, simply his opponent that day vs red hot Gulbis- and thatś not shame to lost to Gulbis playing like people know he can. USO - SF
I really think he will have good season, he is really good on all surfaces, he has no weak surface, just he needs confidence that´s it. Really DC victory can do big things with his head maybe - similar to Nole 2010 DC.
