Fellow Barclays ATP World Tour Finals qualifier Tomas Berdych will also be appearing in London for the second year in a row. The Czech has compiled a consistent season, reaching the quarter-final stages or better at 15 of his 22 events. The RICOH ATP MatchFacts attribute Berdych’s stability in 2011 to a much improved return game, as he has career bests in all return-of-serve categories. His 29 per cent of return games won is four per cent higher than his best previous year in 2006, and his 41 per cent of return points won marks the first time he’s broken the 40 per cent mark.
The list below shows Berdych’s MatchFacts Return Record Year-To-Date.
• 32% 1st Serve Return Points Won
• 54% 2nd Serve Return Points Won [Tied With 2008]
