2012 Abu Dhabi - Live chat with Tennis star Tomas Berdych

Posted on October 16, 2012 at 12:45 AM



Fancy a chat? Berdych will be talking to Sport360 and answering your questions.

Tennis world No7 Tomas Berdych is in Abu Dhabi on Monday and will be talking exclusively to Sport360°’s Reem Abulleil in a live Facebook interview.

Berdych will be in the UAE capital to promote December’s Mubadala World Championship and while he’s in town we thought we would grab a sit-down with the big-serving Czech.

We want you to get involved too, so if you have any questions you want to ask Berdych, from life on the tennis tour, reaching a Wimbledon final, or even his favourite video game, then send them to us on our Facebook page, Twitter account, or email us.

The best question will win a signed tennis cap from Berdych himself, so it’s definitely worth your while to send in whatever you want to ask him.


Chat with Tomas Berdych

Tomas Berdych, in Abu Dhabi to promote the edition 2013 of the Mubadala Tennis Championship to be held December 27 to 29, answered a few questions from fans.

"Until 2010, the year of my Wimbledon final, I thought that the surface where I could win a Grand Slam was just the grass (lawn tennis), then I changed my mind because this year I did not do well at both Wimbledon and the Olympics, but I have reached the semi-finals in all 4 appointments except in Australia, so I can do well on any surface."

"According to me, the perfect player should have the service of John Isner, the backhand of Novak Djokovic, the forehand of ... can I say mine? (laughs) for the flight game Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for response. With regard to the movement a hybrid between Djokovic and Nadal."

"If I were a football player, I would be Messi. My worst nightmare on the court? Novak Djokovic (laughs)."

"The biggest game I've played is definitely the Wimbledon final. This sight, no doubt that within Mahut and Isner, which with their record entered into human history."

"If I could choose a partner for doubles, I would Todd Woodbridge, he won an incredible number of Grand Slam."

"The craziest thing a fan has done for me ... the first time I went to Tokyo a fan gave me a Japanese-English dictionary to learn a few words."
