Tomas Berdych refuses to blame Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic for his lack of success in Majors. The Czech said: "Someone tells me that if they were not there, I could have won one or two Grand Slams. Of course, if...
But if they were not there, my tennis level would have not that high because they would not have made me improve. And that's this way for all the players because everyone wants to reach and beat them. You need to constantly improve.
I think it's a unique moment for tennis that never happened before." On what he will do after his retirement, Berdych added: "We can call it a transition period. It's a new chapter. My plans were fully about tennis and now I will have time for myself and for my dearest ones who supported me all the time."
The prosecutor Corinme Caldelari announced a possible four-year prison ban for Yves Allegro due to rape. The Swiss former player said he is innocent. The verdict will be announced on Tuesday at 4:30 PM. Allegro's lawyers believe he is not at fault, but facts are apparently different as he had a controversial sexual relationship with an Austrian former player in his hotel room.
"My last memory is to have taken some alcohol and then I started dancing", Allegro said during a hearing. "Then I remember I woke up the following day a bit before 8:00 am, a bit lost, so I realized that the additional bed was not combined to the other one anymore.
I was never a bad guy against anybody." Former Roger Federer's doubles partner apologized through a text message to the girl saying he did not behave like a gentleman. "The situation made me feel uncomfortable for my girlfriend."
The victim claimed to have had some huge bone pain after the incident. "Yves Allegro doesn't Remember anything, his victim remembers too well, especially how brutal the situation was."
