    The flat groundies, high ball toss and fear of the net all say yes. What do you think?

    He is no different than 95% of the ATP players

    Berdych came to the net more times against Nadal in Australia than Federer did; don't know where you get this idea he's averse to the forecourt.

    And he never needed to be a playa on the WTA due to his long relationship with Safarova, and he hasn't gone back to that well since they parted.

    Should he switch tours with Stosur?

    Big, tall ball basher? Terrible attitude? Dependably boring game? He has everything except the legs.

    What???

    I find Berdych's game, when he's on, to be one of the most pleasing to watch! He actually hits a clean, flat ball unlike most others with their ridiculous spin.

    Power and clean hitting are no longer rewarded in the men's game (at least not nearly as much as it used to be), its all about spin, improvisation, movement and recovery; and its getting rather boring and old!!!

    haha and being inclined to get into disputes with fellow players. It's only the clean hitting and easy power (to quote Koenig) that's the difference.
