Great performance! Probably Tsonga next round and that should be hard...

Re: Soderking taking on his clay court debut – Barcelona – Live Scoring

If he is in the form it seems like, he could sure take the title here.

Re: Soderking taking on his clay court debut – Barcelona – Live Scoring

Soderking wins another easy one.

Another ATP500 win would fill his plate in those events.

Tsonga is in a little bit of trouble against De Bakker at the moment, down 1 set. I think he will come back and win this one like he did against Almagro yesterday, but he has been far from clinical this week.

Soda on the other hand....

Re: Soderking taking on his clay court debut – Barcelona – Live Scoring

It's easy to say Robin will win this easily, but De Bakker has beaten Ferrero and Tsonga so I really dunno what to expect

Could be a great match though.

Jase, he didn't play horribly against Roddick. Roddick was on fire in the American hard court season reaching one Final and winning the other. He took Roddick to 3 sets, dominated the second and lost by 1 break of serve in the last set. It wasn't his best performance, but it wasn't horrible.

In Robin's last ATP500 Semi-Final, he had one of his best performances of the year beating a Kolya who had only lost to Fed at the AO since pre-World Tour Finals. He went on to win Rotterdam.

Ok, he played awful against Berdych, but that knee had been wrapped up since the Gonzo match, and he was lucky to make it through the Youzhny match having his own serve broken 3 times. He also just looked mentally exhausted in both the Youzhny and Berdych matches as I think the Gonzo one wore him out mentally and physically. Also, a tip of the hat to your Tomas in that match, and this year in general. Tomas has been playing brilliantly and had a highlight reel level match in the Miami SFs.

Soda being the walking wounded or playing an "on fire" vet in their backyard will not be the case in the Semi-Final tomorrow.

Having said that, I only know about De Bakker from what I saw today. First off, this kid is young. He is only 21 years old. I've been wondering if a new star would start to rise up, as it seems like the last one that made a move was Del Pony so long ago. As such, he hasn't learned to play consistently from match to match as far as I can see. He wasn't playing very consistently from game to game with Tsonga (up 1-0, 40-0 in third set, and then let Tsonga dicates the points and win that game to tie it up 1-1, for example), and it was hard to tell if Tsonga was just playing his "D" game, De Bakker was playing an "A" and "B" game or neither. He seems pretty good at hitting low slices, which used to be a Soda weakness, but the Lopez match was filled with ineffective low slices that used to trip Robin up. No longer. he also has an unusual serve that really slides in at an angle and plays more volley points that is typical. I don't know if anyone has really noticed, but Soda has been consistently attacking the net for the past month or two, and his net approaches, which used to hover around 3-10 a match, are now typically around 20.

Anyway, any special insight on De Bakker on is game would be appreciated. I hardly know anything about this kid. I could see Soda romping into the finals, as he looks in-form and injury free, or if this kid has a bag of tricks up his sleeve, Soda may be in for a surprise. My intuition tells me Tsonga did not play his usual solid game, but most players are intimidated by Jo-Willy and he will win on an off day. This kid showed something by taking full advantage.

Re: Soderking taking on his clay court debut – Barcelona – Live Scoring

Congratulation Robin, Well done
Tsonga out, that'amazing for me, but i hoped that..Advantage for Robin, facing to Thiemo is much easier than Tsonga . I think Robin now is too strong for Thiemo, although Thiemo has ever defeated big players like JCF or Tsonga. It's difficult to beat Robin at that time. Good success Robin in Semi Final, You will win this tour, I believe in you

Re: Soderking taking on his clay court debut – Barcelona – Live Scoring

robin is winning easily 6-1, 4-0 right now but his serve is easily the worst i have ever seen anyone serve, truly dreadful.

he's at 44% for the game and 10% in the second set.
