Tomas Berdych vs Somdev Devvarman: Portugal Open Match Preview
India's Somdev Devvarman will be in action today as he prepares to square off with top seed Tomas Berdych at the Portugal Open here in Oeiras.

After returning from injury at the Monte Carlo Masters last month, former Wimbledon finalist Tomas Berdych couldn’t quite get back to the kind of form that had seen in him re-enter the top 5 of the world earlier in the season.

Now back to sixth place in the ATP charts, Berdych will be hoping he puts in a solid performance here at the Portugal Open as it’s only a week to the Madrid Masters where he would need to be in top form as he is defending quite a few points at the event.

With a half decent win-loss record of 21-5 so far this year, Berdych is one of the more consistent performers so far this year. In fact, there have only been two tournaments where the Czech suffered early exits – Indian Wells and then the Monte Carlo Masters.

On clay, Berdych is generally assured and has a win percentage of almost 63 percent on the surface in his career. However, that has not translated into titles on the surface and he has won only one title on the dirt so far in his 12 year career.

Opposite the ‘Bird Man’ stands gritty Indian Somdev Devvarman who in many aspects has already overachieved here in Oeiras. Devvarman has a win-loss record of 4-5 so far in his career and is ranked at 102 in the world at the moment and has already got a top 10 win this year – he defeated Juan Martin del Potro in Dubai earlier in the year.

Head to Head: This is the duo’s second meeting and unsurprisingly it was the Czech who won the first.
