In an interview to Seznam News the expert Chris Bowers reflected on why Tomas Berdych has not won Grand Slam titles during his career. The Czech often lost to Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray. "Compared to the Big Four, he missed the chance of doing something special in a crucial moment, something more.
He was too much predictable as the time went on for the biggest players", said Bowers. "He was a great player who had amazing shots from the baseline. He was always very nice with me and I never found him arrogant. That's why he was one of my favorite players on Tour and I had many conversations with him, we really knew each other well.
think he never had the qualities to equal the Big Four. But who knows what could have happened if he was seven years younger. There was some void between Pete Sampras's retirement and the start of Roger Federer's era, from 2001 to 2003.
At the time, guys like Juan Carlos Ferrero, Andy Roddick, Marat Safin e Lleyton Hewitt were winning. Berdych could have won a Grand Slam and been a world No. 1 if he could play against them." On how he could invest his money, Berdych said: "I try to stay very careful.
I know how much effort I made for it. If I decided to invest in something, I would do it by co-operating with people who are professionals in this field."
