2011 Abu Dhabi *lil* Final: Tomas Berdych vs Robin Soderling

Posted on January 1, 2011 at 5:28 AM

Despite loss to Soderling, Tomas is satisfied with his trip to the UAE

Robin Soderling beat Tomas Berdych 6-4, 7-6 to finish third in the tournament boasting six of the world's top 20 players.

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."



Head bag finally...

Cheers Tomas! Hope you had a great New Year's Eve in Abu Dhabi
