Interesting question, considering. 2011 was a breakthrough year for both Novak and Tipsy. Troicki seemed to start the season well too if I remember. 2009 was the hayday of Verdasco after that heroic 2008 DC victory of his. 2012 saw Ferrer going places he hadn't gone before after Spain's win of last year. I think with a bit of a mental issue guy like Berdych, it might actually help him some, though it's a shame for him he wasn't the true hero.
I think Stepanek might have a good AO, but its a slow slow court and his game is just too full of holes. On the Prague court however, there's no player who'd have a great day against him.
