Berdych, a champion at the ABN AMRO WTT in 2014 and runner-up in 2015 to Stan Wawrinka, improved to 18-7 at the 500-level indoors event with his victory over fellow former top-10 player Richard Gasquet on Thursday. It hadn’t been a brilliant start to the season for Berdych – a semifinalist at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open, he lost in easy straight sets to Andy Murray and was ousted by Roger Federer in, again, easy straight sets in the third round of the Australian Open, a pair of results which underline the general tenor of Berdych’s career:
He is, of course, an elite player but not a man to significantly or consistently trouble those clustered at the top. It feels as if that has become more pronounced in recent years as Berdych’s lone Grand Slam final appearance, at Wimbledon in 2012, fades into the distance and he has taken a slide out of the top 10 due to his failure to defend his Australian Open semifinal points from 2016. But Berdych insisted in pre-match press that he still hoped for more from himself and his career. Indoor conditions in Rotterdam suit him very well,
and the fourth seed recovered quickly from a slow start which saw him fall 0-2 behind: Steadying himself, he broke back in the midst of the first set, saved a set point in the latter stages and edged the tie break, helped by some fantastic defense (not a quality one usually associates with the Czech). Breaking immediately in the second set as Gasquet’s resistance crumbled, Berdych ran through it smoothly as the French player increasingly capitulated, eventually ending the match on a double fault for a 7-6(4), 6-1 victory.
