Next Up for Tomas Berdych... Barcelona Open, Spain

"I'll take a few days break now"

In the Czech media today after Tomas lost in Monte-Carlo Masters Round 3

"I was subconsciously saving my leg. I lost my rhythm and confidence when hitting the ball. I was  kinda worried about my ankle. The first set was excellent against Verdasco but I must admit that at the end of the match I ran out of steam. I lost momentum and failed. That's why I lost. I'll take a few days break now" said Berdych.

Fortunately, the injury doesn’t seem serious and Tomas should be playing next week in Barcelona (of course, if his ankle allows it)
