I started game in 2003, now it is 2014. So I have completed 11 full seasons. Started at 100 in the world. I first made the world number one ranking in week 41 of 2003 (by far the quickest I have ever done it, usually takes me a couple of seasons minimum), and have held it continually since week 45 of 2003 to (currently) week 12 of 2014. Though I am getting old and I think Djokovic might overtake me before the end of the year, he just beat me in the final of the Ausi Open.
I have won 9 Ausi Opens, 9 French Opens, 8 Wimby, 11 US Opens. I am still undefeated at US Open. Won 9 WTF, though lost in the final for the last two years (first to Del Potro, second to Murray). Won 59 Masters titles not including WTFs.
The player that I have had the most trouble against is Federer w/l 47:19, particularly on fast courts (I've never beaten him on quick indoor courts like the Paris Masters) but have dominated him on Clay and Hard. I have never had any real trouble against Nadal (42:8), including giving him a 6-0, 6-0, 6-1 drubbing in FO final in 2006. I've found that beating him is about getting the blend of crazy all out attack with draining long rallies where I wait for him to make errors, knowing that when neither of us have any energy left I can use twist kick serves to push him way back in the court and then sneak in to the net. Also I attack his forehand (not backhand), and then move forwards in the court to play my first volley in to his weaker backhand (if that helps). Angles and power hitting don't work so well against him, he just whips them down the line. So push him back push him back push him back. And be patient.
Recently flat power players like Del Potro have caused me the most trouble. I can't deal with the pace as easily and they break my volleying a bit.

And yes with an offensive player like the Czech (big serve, big forehand but not a very good defender), the defensive spaniards colony (Nadal, Ferrer, Robredo, Montanes...) will be your biggest challenge, especially on clay.
