Talented Berdych to finish the year as #1 Czech player over steady Stepanek.

Wow, that was a closely fought match with Roger I say it's a good comeback after losing to Roger pretty badly in Roland Garros. This is now has got his first grass final and is really turning into. So when do you guys think he will hit top 10?

Re: Thomas Berdych, another career high ranking and top 10 prospect...

In my opinion Berdych providing that he has decents draw could be top ten by the US open. His first title was on clay, he has beaten Nalbandian on the surface and pushed Nadal in a final so he can obviously play on the surface. On hardcourts it's obvious he is very good on that. He's won a master series on carpet beating Ljubicic in the final and now made a final on grass. Has a huge serve, a devastating forehand, one of the best backhands and is able to come to the net.

Like many of the young guys coming up (monfils, gasquet, murray, djokovic), if he could get his head together, he could get up there and be a top 10er. (as could all of them)

Thomas is much more mature and more importantly...he at least WON something.

Federer won his first title at age 19 and Berdych won his first MASTERS at 19.
Berdych is only 20 he is surely showing promises as he starts climbing his way into top 10. He will soon become, other than Nadal, the youngest player in the top 10, good luck Thomas

You are asking for miracles, some of the youngsters seem to be decapitated by nature

I would say Berdych has more talent than Monfils, Murray and Djokovic and has got his head together far better than Gasquet. Looks most likely of the five mentioned to break top ten (perhaps at some poitn during this year), break top five (possibly sometime before the end of 2007 if his progress continues) and be most successful of the five in terms of winning titles.

He has a great chance during the hardcourt and carpet season

Btw, its Tomas not Thomas. Pronounced toe-ma

Tomas is the most talented youngster by far. He'll be top ten for sure. Maybe #1 if he can get it together and stay focused for an entire season. He's not there yet, of course, but maybe in a few years he'll put together a good run.

Among this list of youngsters ( Berdych , Murray , Djoko , Gasquet , Monfils ) i think Djoko is the guy who will get more achievements overall in his career though another players of this list have more theoretical potential .

And regarding Berdych i don't see him not even as the second player with more achievements among these youngsters . His mentality sucks as he has shown today in the first set .

None of the youngsters are more talented than Gasquet..And thats a fact..No doubt he lacks mental confidence..

That's not a fact. Berdych would blow him off the court

Berdych is the guy I picked to become the best of the young guns even better then Nadal as an overall player. He definately hast the talent and ability to do well on every surface out there!

It is good that he broke top-15 and nobody seemed to notice. I don't care about the ranking at this point but he has certainly made progress this year, i was impressed that he won against Nalbandian in straight sets on clay and making a grass final. The latter is important because he had traditionally problems coping with low-bouncing balls.

It is possible that he will break top-10 but he also has points to defend now, last summer he had a final and two semis before the two hard court AMS tournaments.
