My Tennis Fantasy: Berdych

Current Overall Ranking: 19th
My MVP for the Week: Tomas Berdych (Czech Republic) with $75,500, losing to Rafael Nadal (Spain) in the quarterfinals of the Sony Ericsson Open

Despite his strong performance, Berdych will lose ranking points this week as he made it all the way to the finals in Miami last year. Nonetheless, he has some time to build up points before Roland Garros. In last year's European clay season, Berdych made it to the third round in Monte Carlo, the second in Rome and the quarters in Madrid. Odds are good that he can improve on those results. After that he'll have big tests, what with semifinalist points to defend at the French and finalist points at Wimbledon. Was last year the real Berdych or will he return to his underachieving ways?

  1. last year Berdych ended Roger Federer's trophy streak at Wimbledon. Its tough when your on top of your game and that happens, I figure Berdych has zip to lose.
