Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych took on each other at the start of this year

There was some heat out there on the court when Andy Murray and Tomas Berdych took on each other at the start of this year and the reason for that was a woman, Dani Vallverdu.

Vallverdu had been in the support staff of Murray until the last season and then, she decided to switch to Berdych.

That probably provided Murray a little bit of extra fire in his belly when he came up against Berdych at the Melbourne Park.

The 26-year old wanted to prove a point to Vallverdu and he did that successfully as he completely blew away Berdych.

The duo is going to meet again in Miami in a couple of days’ time and it should not be surprising if the atmosphere remains heated there as well.

Murray and Berdych actually share quite a good relationship between themselves. Both have been mates since their teenage. So, no personal rift seems to exist there, but, still, there would be fierce competitiveness and both the players would be going flat out to make a mark.

Murray though said yesterday that he had no hard feelings in his heart for Vallverdu and he would even be inviting her in his wedding ceremony that is going to be held shortly.

The Scot was quoted as saying, “Dani is still someone whom I admire immensely and have got a lot of respect for.”

“In Australia, things had probably gone slightly too far, but, it happens. We have started to exchange messages again and there are no hard feelings at all.”

As far as the performance of Murray and Berdych in the Miami tournament is concerned, the former has been pretty clinical, while, the latter has been a bit lucky to be able to get this far.
