TOMAS BERDYCH: "I'm feeling better, but I am not in optimal conditions to play this week in Barcelona because pain in my right shoulder."
TOMAS BERDYCH: "Roland Garros remains my main goal. I am trying to make the best possible recovery, also in view of being able to play in Madrid in a couple of weeks. I think there is enough time; I have all the next week to recover. I think everything will be fine and I will be in Madrid."
TOMAS BERDYCH: "I'm trying to improve my game, especially working on my serve. I think the backhand can also be improved to be a tougher opponent. In addition, I want to play closer to the net and I must improve my volley for it."
TOMAS BERDYCH: "I would like to play until I'm 35. Roger is the perfect example of longevity, although not everyone is like him. I have to take care of health and physical condition to compete for many years in this sport that I love,"
