    This from his verified official twitter account...

    Pretty pathetic from the world #6, he is openly fanboying Rafa right here. I could understand #60 or #600, but this guy is supposed to be one of Nadal's main rivals! No wonder he's lost to Rafa like 10 times in a row now...

    It's annoying that this guy tries SO hard to beat Roger every time (you can see it in his eyes every time they play that he REALLY wants to take Federer out, for some reason he despises him) and then bends over tamely for Rafa. I guess these tweets explain why....

    So what? Maybe he likes Nadal and wanted him to win. I fail to see the big deal here.

    That annoys me ALOT. Guys like Berdych or Tsonga get hot for a match and beat Federer then crumble in the next round...

    Not that surprising from someone who's wearing an H&M oufit on court.

    I guess he's proud of his fanboying. Twitter obviously doesn't think he's important enough to verify his account.

    Is Berdy going to get more twitter followers than Nadal, Djokovic and Federer?

    Wasn't it Roddick who said he didn't mind losing slam finals to Fed because Fed is GOAT? Jonas Bjorkman is another Fed fanboy who took delight in losing to Fed at Wimby several years ago. Those examples are far worse than Berdych saying he's happy for Nadal that he won RG

    Its great to see Berdych tweet like that. Definitely one of the best personalities in the game. This is the way to use twitter. I like it and hope he keeps it up.

    Nothing new here. I remember Ljubicic and a few other top players fanboying over Federer in the day.

    Don't see what's wrong with this.

    Nice to see some camaraderie off court, real or not.

    Kinda reminds me that these guys are human after all.

    Need more of this amongst players. Doesn't matter who the subject is.

    I'm sure there wouldn't be a problem if Verdasco or Ferrer tweeted this about Federer's Wimbledon 2012. I know I would've enjoyed it just the same.

    I get where Berdych is coming from. He can beat all top players but Nadal. He is making himself look good by vouching for how great Nadal is (maybe seeking an explanation for why he can't beat him).

    That said, he should stick to posting about lizards.

    Berdych loves Nadal or hates Federer, you choose.
    When he beat Federer in Wimbledon 2010, he said that the swissman was a bad loser because he used his back injury as an excuse to explain his loss. In the end of the year, he said he voted Nadal for the Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship award rather than Fed for this reason. Funny because in 2006 Berdych didn't like Rafa at all (see what happened in the Madrid Masters).

    He's not the only one to try hard to take Federer out. I remember the Masters Cup 2008 where Murray, who was already qualified, tried hard to eliminate Federer in Round Robin (and he did it). You can also feel the same behaviour when Djokovic plays against the swissman.

    Any wonder he rolled over in the Roma final so easily? He was in awe of his favourite player, maybe asked him for a autograph after the match.

    I don't understand how he beat Federer so early in his career, he was like a rabbit in the headlights when he played Roddick a few times in America. I think on the whole he has played maybe three good matches against Nadal but still loses 90% of the big points, the rest of their matches fan boy play.

    Seems too fanboyish to me, as in, I think he's somewhat taking the p1ss. Him saying 'Warrior is on fire!!' actually made me laugh out loud. He's an amazing man.

    Berdych knows Ralph as

    WARRIOR Nadal.


    Congrats on winning that tournament again.

    Yes. During their first 4 matches in 2005-2006, Berdych was a bit of a nightmare matchup for Nadal. Nadal just barely won their first match in the final of 2005 Bastad on clay (Nadal's 29th win on clay in a row, during that 81 in a row streak), and Berdych beat Nadal 3 times in a row at 2005 Cincinnati, 2006 Toronto and 2006 Madrid Indoors. During that latter match in Madrid, after Berdych won, he hushed up the Spanish crowd and Nadal said something to Berdych after shaking his hand at the net, which obviously wasn't complimentary.

    When they asked Nadal and Berdych about this spat a few months later, they said that they had patched up their differences. Nadal has won every match he has had against Berdych from 2007 onwards.

    The one about Nadal having a new telephone number 8636263 was funny :lol:
