I'll just throw this out there for what it is worth:
I have a much better feeling about this match than I had with the Kolya match going into it. In the Kolya match, Robin only needed to win a set to get the evening match, which he clearly was focused on doing in the first two sets, whereas Kolya was fighting for his life as he HAD to win the match to stay alive in the tournament. These factors made me nervous about it; in addition to the fact that a highly motivated Kolya is extremely tough (see last two matches they've played).
I think Robin goes into tonight's match with the fiercer intensity than Del Pony. Robin just barely lost and wants to win badly, he is hungrier, and Del Pony has more of a reason to feel satisfied with where he is at after beating Fed once again. If Robin goes down tonight, at least you know he will throw everything he has at Del Pony for the victory. The two have only met twice (1-1 H2H), and Del Pony has never faced an in form Soderking.
I have a good feeling about this one. I'm glad he gets the extra rest too.
