In a conference call in Doha, with children, Tomas Berdych was asked about what his game plan would be when he faces Novak Djokovic. The former world no. 4 said: 'First of all, I don't know if I should tell that.
No, I think it's - he's - he knows and he is a great player. Right now he is the no. 1 in the world. So, he's a very tough opponent to beat. And the tactics, you know, I manage to beat him two, three times? Yeah, two, three times.
So, it was always a very difficult match. I had to be serving very well because he is very good on return and he has a great defense as well. And just try to stick with my game, try to play very aggressive, try to come to the net.
Not to play really long rallies with him because that's where he is very good and very strong. And just try to win one more point than him.' Asked at what age he played his first tournament, Berdych replied: 'It depends which one you mean.
I think my first-ever tournament was under, nine and under, so I was around, yeah, eight, something like that, so I think when I was eight I played my first.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
