World No 7 Tomas Berdych says the World Tennis Thailand Championship is perfect preparation for the new season, as he leads a field of six elite players into the Hua Hin event.

Previous winners of the event have gone on to lift the Australian Open trophy. Kim Clijsters and Victoria Azarenka used their Hua Hin wins in 2011 and 2012, respectively, as a springboard to triumph at the season's first Major, in Melbourne. China's Li Na won the friendly in 2013 before going on to win the Australian Open in January this year.

"Let's hope that this tradition will keep on. There will be six of us trying to win this trophy," said the towering Berdych, who boasts semi-final appearances in every Major, with his best result a runners-up place at Wimbledon in 2010.
