Berdych : "I feel like season should end, but it is just one third now"

After his loss to Gasquet, Tomas talks about his feelings to Radiojournal (CZ) and about a fact, he is so tired he feel season should end right now.

"In match vs Gasquet I couldn't give more, I was totally exhausted after playing 7 weeks in a row. Conditions were different than in IW and it suited more to Richard, but that's why tennis is so attractive."

"Right now I am physically so down and it is more complicated that our DC team is heading into Kazakhstan, so things couldn't be tougher for me. So far I have had great 2013, but right now I feel season should end - but it's only in its first third."

Interesting words from Berdych, I can certainly see him skipping Monte-Carlo (Masters), he should really try to get some rest to prepare properly on clay season.

Maybe if courts were speed up, it wouldn't be so physically demanding for players to play several weeks back-to-back.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

Gasquet played almost the same number of matches, and I don't see him complaining here.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Well it was his choice to play 7 weeks in a row. Who told him to play Marseille and Dubai before IW and Miami? He knew DC was coming up too... It's nothing to do with speed of courts - Dubai is pretty fast and Marseille was indoors. He's overplayed this year and probably should skip Monte Carlo to recharge given that he has a final to defend in Madrid. Rotterdam, then a week off, then Dubai would have made more sense, if anything.

I really wondered what he had in mind when committing to both of those

And he also committed to the Queens by the way ...

He fought great against Falla and Gimeno-Traver, showing great effects of the work with his mental coach, but it also clearly tired him.
Not sure what you mean by this.

Berdych seems like one of the least driven players on tour, satisfied with trailing behind the top 4. I think this kind of attitude that he has shown recently is frustrating. He has little belief.

He shouldn't have played Marseilles and Dubai back to back before Indian Wells.

Stupid scheduling considering he was still playing tennis in December and committed to DC again after the Australian Open. (A good argument for finalists having R1 byes the following year)

Should have done a Murray ie, no play between Aussie Open and Indian Wells

Is Berdych counting 2 days of Davis Cup play as a two weeks or what?

Berdych and unfounded whinging is not uncommon unfortunately.

His declarations are reasonable as he has been playing too much consecutive weeks. Maybe he won't go to Montercarlo.

I hope to see him in Barcelona, please Berdych don't withdraw from Barcelona OpenBanc Sabadell pleaseeeeeee

Re: Berdych : "I feel like season should end, but it is just one third now"

Well Berdych didn't have to Dubai and Marseille... especially the latter.

If he's so tired, he should just do what so many other top players do and rest between the Aussie Open and IW. The fact that he's complaining about being tired is ridiculous given he's played two non-mandatory tournaments.

Murray done it the right way. He's fresh right now and will be peaking for RG and Wimbledon.

Tennis has become more physical than ever. In 1990s, Kafelnikov was able to win both singles and doubles at RG, nowadays no serious GS title contender plays doubles in order to get rest. That's a proof of tennis becoming more physical. Longer matches mean you need more rest, and that's why players complain about how long the season is despite that it's just as long as it's always been.
