    Rafa, Novak back in charge, says number 5 Berdych

    Fifth-ranked Tomas Berdych, hoping to crack the top four in men's tennis for years, says Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal have resumed their stranglehold at the top despite Stanislas Wawrinka's shock Australian Open title. The 28-year-old Czech, seeking his 10th career ATP title as the top seed at this week's ATP and WTA Washington Open, said Monday that number one Djokovic, coming off a Wimbledon title, and second-ranked Nadal, who won the French Open last month, combine with 17-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer to make the going tough for challengers. Nadal, Djokovic and third-ranked Federer have combined to win 34 of the past 38 Grand Slam men's singles crowns, 38 of the past 45 going back to Federer's first Slam title in 2003 at Wimbledon. In the past 38 Slams, only Britain's Andy Murray winning last year at Wimbledon and the 2012 US Open, Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro at the 2009 US Open and fourth-ranked Wawrinka's breakthrough this year have loosened the elite's grip on the game's greatest trophies.
