Berdych confirms Queen's plan

March 05, 2013 15:17:30 UK
Tomas Berdych has confirmed that he will play at Queen's this year.

Tomas Berdych has confirmed that he will prepare for Wimbledon this summer by taking part in the Aegon Championships at Queen's Club.

The 27-year-old Czech, who is ranked sixth in the world, has not featured in the tournament since 2005 when he crashed out at the first round stage.

And, having prepared for Wimbledon in Halle, Germany, since then Berdych is now changing his plans for 2013 and will look to try and stop Britain's number one Andy Murray from winning his third title at Queen's.

I think it could be a good advantage to be in London to get used to the conditions and to those great courts, and I think this is exactly what I need before Wimbledon.

Berdych, who lost out to Rafael Nadal in the 2010 Wimbledon final, said: "I think it could be a good advantage to be in London to get used to the conditions and to those great courts, and I think this is exactly what I need before Wimbledon.

"The experience of reaching the Wimbledon final was great. It showed me a lot of things - that I'm able to play really well through two weeks, which is very tough. I now have experience of a Grand Slam final and I hope one day I can be able to profit from that.

"For instance, the year I reached the Wimbledon final I was able to profit from the Grand Slam semi-final I reached a couple of weeks earlier in Paris, so I hope I can use the experience of reaching the Wimbledon final to make the next step."

Berdych is 41.00 to win at Wimbledon this summer, Murray can be backed at 4.00, reigning champion Roger Federer is 8.00 and Novak Djokovic is 2.25.
