Confirmed: Tomáš Berdych and Lucie Šafářová Have Broken Up.

Translation by Paulmara on TennisForum:

"Game set match ! The string of love in tennis raquet of Czech tennis pair Berdych safarova broke.
After 9 years they broke up. There was nothing to talk about , they were more friends than lovers, there were more tear times. That why they decided to retired their relationship.

Their relationship started 9 years ago when tomas send her text messages with congratulations (note tennis junior award or something) they had their first date, went to the cinema few times and it was love like Wimbledon. „ It is an advantage to have a tennis partner. We have to travel a lot and train and we can do it together, which is great „ tomas said

They friends speculeted about marriage, but they disagreed. „We are too young“ Their relationship doesn´t progress and start fading. Because there are only few tournamnet for women and men together it happened they haven´t seen each other for two months. They were separated few times and in June in Wimbledon they were not together. This time definitely.

„ We broke up like adults. There in no anger. We will stay friends“ Safarova said. One of the reason was their work. They are separated for 2 months. They have no new partners
."

I don't know. I think both could go in a slump for the next month or so and Berdych showed the beginning of his with that disgusting performance against Soderling in Bastad. Sad because they seemed so perfect for each other but a good point that article makes is that they hardly got to spend time together, but then I suppose that's expected.

Maybe this break up will make Berdych stop being a total mug.

Hope Berdych will be single now and focusing on tennis, there are 2 options only i think 1-he will be 100% dedicated now to tennis and finally will be making more from his potential, maybe playing like list year- his ranking is already great- actually is much better than his level of game, but his overall game need to be better and he needs better results on slams, Masters. 2option- he will have now many ,,adventures,, finally is single... and his tennis will be even worse.

This should have been posted in the off-topic section, Jase.
Anyways, sad news, breaking up a relationship after nine years is never easy. Best wishes to the both of them.

Here I was thinking an atp/wta relationship could work out finally. No, the schedule will just never allow it.

Doubt it unless he already fell in love with someone else.

It should help Lucie's career though. I've noticed that WTA girls do worse when they start dating a tennis pro and play better when they break up. With the guys it's the opposite-- they start winning when they get into relationship and totally suck when they end it.

I heard about this a couple weeks ago. It's sad to see a couple that has been together that long break up (at least the ones not completely dysfunctional).

In all these paires the girls gave up tennis first and only after that they were able to build successful relationships.

True, but it's just impossible to know if the couples would have been able to stay together had the girls continued to play, we can't say with certainty that the conflicting schedules curse would have made more victims :)

In a newspaper here they focused on the pairs that didn't work. Quite a lot of them:

Jimmy Connors and Chris Evert
Gaël Monfils and Dominika Cibulkova (they forgot to add Melzer to Cibulkova)
Radek Stepanek and Martina Hingis
Carlos Moya and Flavia Pennetta
Lleyton Hewitt and Kim Clijsters
Fernando Verdasco and Ana Ivanovic
Andrei Medvedev and Anke Huber
Samuel Groth and Jarmila Gajdosova
Marcos Baghdatis and Petra Cetkovska
Jurgen Melzer and Nicole Vaidisova

Definitely the successful ones are rare :D

But Steffi is older than Andre, and more successful ;)
