Drawing: Tomas Berdych

Thomas Berdych

One of the nicest guys in world tennis is the 6ft 5 inch Czech Tomas Berdych. Currently ranked at number seven, Tomas is known for having one of the cleanest and hardest hitting games on the ATP Tour. He has the ability to generate great pace with his serve and groundstrokes. He reached his first and only Grand Slam final at Wimbledon in 2010 after beating defending champion Roger Federer in the quarters and Novak Djokovic in the semifinal. He lost to Rafael Nadal in the final. He has reached the semifinals of all the remaining slams – Australia (2014), French (2010) and US Open (2012).

On every occasion I have met Tomas, he has always been friendly and happy to sign. At the ATP World Tour Finals at London’s O2 earlier this month was no exception and he happily signed and dedicated this sketch.
