LONDON (AP)

At 27, it might be too late for Tomas Berdych to aim for a new career as a frontman in a rock band. But the former Wimbledon finalist wouldn't mind trading in his racket for a mike and performing in arenas of a different kind.

After reaching the third round at the grass-court Grand Slam with a straight-sets win over Daniel Brands, Berdych was asked on Thursday what he would do if he was not a tennis player.

The seventh-seeded Czech, a runner-up at the All England Club in 2010, said that ''besides the tennis, the other best job is rock star. You're singing in front of 100,000 people.''

Berdych, however, declined to show off his musical skills when asked to perform a song.
