Injured Berdych unable to defend title

tomas-berdychTomas Berdych has been forced to withdraw from this week's Open Sud de France tournament in Montpellier after hurting his wrist at the weekend.

Berdych suffered the injury during his marathon Davis Cup exploits as he helped the Czech Republic beat Switzerland in a first round tie.
Berdych secured three victories but it took him 13 hours to do so, with the doubles victory when he partnered Lukas Rosol taking over seven hours to complete.
I need to take it seriously, rest, and be ready for the rest of the year.Tomas Berdych
He also won his two singles encounters - against Henri Laaksonen and Stanislas Wawrinka - but his exertions have come at a cost.
Berdych said: "It's tough those feelings you can have in tennis. One day you're celebrating the victory, the next day you have to make a decision that's not what you would like to do.
"I have to look long-term though. I'm still feeling my right wrist from that really long weekend, which is bothering me. I need to take it seriously, rest, and be ready for the rest of the year."
The 27-year-old, who was beaten in the Wimbledon final of 2010, is still to win a Grand Slam. He can be backed at 41.00 to win the SW19 tournament this year.
Berdych had been the top seed and defending champion for the Open Sud de France which Richard Gasquet can now be backed at 4.00 to win.
