Speaking after his quarter-final Australian Open loss to Rafael Nadal this afternoon, Berdych believes that it is currently the hardest time to being playing the men's game.

"Of course, [Federer and Nadal] already know they are two in the semis. We will see what's gonna happen tomorrow," he told reporters.
