Berdych has reached the semifinals of all four Grand Slams. Alongside his Wimbledon performance in the same year, he reached the semifinals of the 2010 French Open, defeating Andy Murray in straight sets in the fourth round, and dropping no sets until his loss in the semifinals to Robin Söderling. At the 2012 US Open he defeated Roger Federer, again at the quarterfinal stage, before losing to Murray. During the 2014 Australian Open he lost to eventual champion Stanislas Wawrinka in four sets during the semi. He is the second player (after David Nalbandian) to defeat Roger Federer multiple times in Grand Slam events before the semifinal stage. He has the distinction of being one of three players, the others being Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Stan Wawrinka, to defeat all the Big Four in major events.
As well as his Paris Masters win, Berdych has reached the finals of the Miami Masters in 2010, Madrid Open in 2012 and Monte Carlo Masters in 2015, losing to Andy Roddick, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, respectively. He first reached his career-high singles ranking of World No. 4 in 2015.
