One of the most consistent performers of his time and 2010 Wimbledon Finalist – Tomas Berdych is set to draw curtains on his illustrious career at the ATP Finals in London on Saturday, according to his father - Martin Berdych.
“I think it will be a great end on Saturday,” Blesk quoted Martin Berdych saying that he and his wife would go to London to the farewell event. Speculations have been circulating around that Berdych was ending his career post this year’s US Open.
He commented after his first round elimination at the US Open this year that his continuation in 2020 would be very unrealistic. Berdych suffers from chronic problems caused by a congenital defect of his left hip. Berdych has lifted 13 ATP Titles in singles and 2 in doubles.
He has also won the Davis Cup twice, in 2012 and 2013. With almost $30 million as prize money in his tennis career, he has been ranked as high as No.4 on the ATP Charts. When it comes to results this year, he had a win-loss record of 13-9 with just over $500,000 in prize money.
He finishes his career with an impressive win-loss record of 640-342. He started the 2019 season with a bang, a final in Doha followed by a Round 4 stint at the Australian Open but failed to maintain his consistency and momentum courtesy injuries. Berdych is likely to stay in New York for some time because of his wife,model Ester Berdych Satorova.
