Wow. Those Czechs don't hold back, do they? Tomas air quotes Nikki V and kinda states the obvious:
TDF: A question about another Czech female tennis player, Nicole Vaidisova. Her ranking has fallen a lot recently, and she lost in the first round of qualifying this week in Stanford, winning only three games. Has there been a lot of talk among the Czechs about what’s going on with her?
Tomas Berdych: I mean, with the Czechs, because she quit the Fed Cup, and she quit the national team, she is not popular.
TDF: Not popular with the other Czech players?
Tomas Berdych: Yeah, I would say that. There are many reasons for not playing, but if you just say "I’m done, I’m not playing," well…
The people don’t like her as much. She’s living more in the States. So yeah, [quotation fingers] "she’s Czech". But she’s living so much outside, so I don’t know much about her.
But this is a sport. This is tennis. I don’t know. I just hope she can get better and…that’s it.
