Tomas Berdych turned professional in 2002, at the 2005 Paris Masters he won his first career ATP Masters Series title.

Berdych is an extremely talented player, as shown by his wins over top seeds. An offensive baseliner, he employs a fairly traditional technique with his forehand, double-handed backhand and serve, but is notable in the degree of power with which he hits his shots. However, he is prone to inconsistency and is not always able to close out matches. Occasionally, he gets caught up complaining about line calls.

Berdych was the first player to defeat both Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal while they were ranked 1 and 2 respectively in the ATP world rankings.

His best achievements are reaching the final of the 2010 Wimbledon Championships, and the semi-finals of the 2010 French Open. He has won one ATP Masters 1000 title in 2005. He reached a career high of World No. 6 on 18 October 2010.
