(6) Tomas Berdych
- DOB: 17/09/1985
- Nationality: CZE
- Became Pro: 2002
- Height: 1.96
The big-serving Czech was one of the success stories of 2010, finally converting his undoubted talent into some impressive results at the highest level.
Berdych made the semi-finals here in Paris, beating Andy Murray en route, and backed that up by reaching his first Grand Slam final at Wimbledon, where Roger Federer was among his victims.
A disappointing second half of the season followed, and although 2011 has brought plenty of match wins, Berdych's problem this year has been progressing beyond quarter and semi-finals.
The 25-year-old is one of the power generation of players who hits the ball a ton and when he gets going he takes some stopping.
Slow, damp conditions will likely suit him here, but a tendency to get down on himself has been a problem in the past.
Will be dangerous if he hits top form, but there look more likely winners.
