Yup, it's worse for Soderling than for Tsonga and Berdych because the latter two have more variety, while Soderling's only option is to get into a baseline hitting contest where he will inevitably be slaughtered.

They played all their five matches in a very short period of time when Kei was in a slump/returning from injury, so I'd like to see more before calling it a bad matchup. It's a bit like Cilic vs Tipsy imo, things will become more even once Tipsy became a top player/Kei got healthy, a top player.
