Tomas Berdych finished 2012 just outside the Top Five in the ATP Tour rankings.
His time is due in 2013 when he is most likely to have a majors break.
Why? Many reasons.
It is important to note that Berdych has spent 2012 playing for his country as well as for himself.
The year 2013 will be for himself.
There are various signs for all to see that suggest Berdych will finally make the transition to the next level.
Berdych had a good second half of the year compared to the first, and that is where he has to make efforts to become a better player next year.
If Berdych can do well on clay and grass in the same vein as hard courts, he will no doubt cross David Ferrer in the rankings very soon.
There is no doubt about his ability, even from his junior days, and this year, he has proved that he can climb even higher.
Will 2013 see him in the Top Five? Definitely possible.
Here are 10 reasons why Berdych is the player most likely to have a majors breakthrough in 2013:
