Tomas Berdych a.k.a. The Birdman - A Fan Site since 2004
2018 TAG HEUER Tomas Berdych - Hubert Schmidt
PRAGUE (Czech Republic) | Friday, November 9, 2018 ---- Petra Kvitova was invited on court for a special gift presentation from her sponsor, Tag Heuer. In Prague for the upcoming Fed Cup final, the brand ambassador was given a gift and a painted picture of herself, and all seemed to be business as usual. She was then introduced to the artist of the portrait, Hubert Schmidt, who looked a little... familiar Kvitova expected a casual hit-and-giggle type of rally when she was asked to hit with the painter, who was dressed in old-fashioned clothing and even played with a wood racquet. "He's pretty good," Kvitova said as the man hit a few winners. Turns out, Schmidt was actually an undercover Tomas Berdych. Kvitova figured it out along the way?maybe the ace down the T gave it away. The world No. 7 is meant to lead the Czech Republic in the Fed Cup final against the United States, but an illness has kept her out of the original lineup. She was recently announced as the Fed Cup Heart Award winner. The 28-year-old donated the $10,000 check to the hospital that saved her left hand, which was injured in an armed robbery in 2016.
