TOMAS BERDYCH "My body is not ready for this. I needed more time to be fit. I need more time to be better prepared," said Berdych, who reached the U.S. Open quarterfinals last week. "This is the toughest conditions for me, coming from fast hard courts to the clay. I definitely need more time but it was a good choice for France. I need to move on and get over it."
