Top 8 greatest Czech tennis players of all time
#2 Tomas Berdych
Arguably the most recognizable tennis face from Czech Republic in men's tennis post the dissolution of Czechoslovakia in 1993, Tomas Berdych has been a regular fixture in the ATP Tour for the last 11 years or so. With just under 29 million US dollars in earnings, Berdych is 9th in the all-time list of highest-grossing men's earners.
Berdych reached a career-high ranking of World Number 4 in May 2015. He has made at least the semis of every single Grand Slam and even made the Wimbledon final in 2010 where he was the runner-up to Rafael Nadal. This was his best ever performance in a Grand Slam. En route to his way to the final, he beat defending champion Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic in successive matches.
His crowning trophy till date is the Paris Masters trophy which he won as an unseeded player way back in 2005.
Berdych has also helped the Czech Republic win the Davis Cup twice in 2012 and 2013.
