Tomas Berdych v Bernard Tomic Head to Head
The players have met five times on the ATP circuit with Berdych winning on all occasions.
Berdych Looking for Positive Start
Czech veteran Tomas Berdych returned to the tour at the start of the year, after a long injury lay-off in 2018. Berdych, a former top ten ranked player made a strong return with consistent form and results, and looked close to his old self from time to time. With a game that is well suited to hard court, it was expected that Berdych would perform well at the Sunshine Masters, at Indian Wells, and Miami.
Indian Wells was a disappointing outing for the Czech with a first round loss to Spanish veteran Feliciano Lopez. Berdych will be hoping for an improved showing at Miami, where he had has avorable results in years past.
Berdych will be looking for a quick and clinical start to his campaign, with a potential second round clash against Novak Djokovic in the pipeline.
Can Tomic Maintain Focus and Pull off a Win?
Australian Bernard Tomic, once branded as a future Grand Slam champion, has had inconsistent results on the tour of late, coupled with temperamental challenges. A naturally talented player with a strong serve and powerful game, Tomic has had a see-saw of a career between promise, good results and disappointing losses.
Similar to Australian compatriot Nick Kyrgios, a lot depends on the form and mood that Tomic is in on the given day. Sometimes referred to as being “disinterested”, Tomic has played Challenger tournaments and had poor losses and pulled off victories against top ranked players on the ATP circuit.
As has been the case in some of their earlier battles, if the Tomic game is clicking, this could be another close and well-fought tussle.
