Tomas Berdych laments Big Four roadblock
January 24, 2012 - Big-hitting Czech Tomas Berdych lamented the strength of tennis's "Big Four" on Tuesday after he crashed to the latest in a series of Grand Slam defeats to the elite group. The gangly world number seven took the opening set off Rafael Nadal but he slowly slid off the pace in their 4hr 16min Australian Open quarterfinal, eventually succumbing 6-7 (5/7), 7-6 (8/6), 6-4, 6-3. The encounter was a rematch of the 2010 Wimbledon final, which Nadal won in straight sets, the closest the Czech has come to a major title. "This is probably the toughest time to play because of those four really strong guys making almost history every week they go and play," he said. "It's tough, but it's how it is. We just need to deal with it."
