Season in review: It was another typical Berdych year: a pair of 250-point titles, a few decent runs at the Masters 1000 level, consistently decent results in Grand Slams to go along with one especially standout performance (an Australian Open upset of Rafael Nadal that ended a 17-match losing streak in the head-to-head series), and a ranking of No. 6 in the world. As usual, the Czech beat up on lesser competition while struggling mightily against the game’s best players. In fact, Berdych does not have a single win over a fellow World Tour Finals participant aside from his defeat of Nadal Down Under. On the bright side for Berdych, both of his titles in 2015 have come this fall and he also reached the quarterfinals at each of the two most recent Masters 1000 events (Shanghai and Paris).
2015 record: 57-19
Fall record (post-U.S. Open): 12-4
