Berdych also was pleased with his performance. He beat Marcos Baghdatis in the first round before losing to Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals.


"This was a really great start of the year," he said. "You can be practising as hard as you want, but you cannot get these kind of matches anywhere, just this place.


"So I am happy to be here and having this opportunity to play these three matches. I think it's a great start and I am really looking forward to the next weeks, to the new season."
