Ninth place Tomas Berdych is currently on the outside looking in and, after missing the US Open, is in desperate need of a deep run in St. Petersburg to kick off his bid to qualify for his seventh straight World Tour Finals. With Rafael Nadal not playing this week, this is a chance for Berdych to take a chunk out of the deficit.
