Tomas Berdych done for the season

Czech tennis player Tomas Berdych has put an end to his season.

The world No. 18 has withdrawn from the upcoming Vienna Open and Paris Masters as he is dealing with a back injury.

Berdych is the latest big name to finish the 2017 season earlier than expected.

Previously, Grand Slam champions Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka, as well as rising stars Milos Raonic and Kei Nishikori quit the year.

Briton Andy Murray is also expected to not play anymore this season as he is still recovering from a hip injury.

Berdych last played at the China Open in Beijing -- where he fell short in round-of-16 to Andrej Rublev.

The Czechman has concluded yet another season without a maiden Grand Slam title.

Berdych, 32, had a good campaign at Wimbledon before he lost to eventual champion Roger Federer in the semi-finals.

Former world No. 4 Berdych, in fact, hasn't captured any titles this year.

In his only final of the year, Berdych fell short to fan-favorite Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Lyon.
