Söderling beats Stepanek 6-4 6-7 6-3

Yess!

I don't know if i've ever been more frustrated during a match as this one, he had a million chanches to close it out, but atleast he made it in the end, but boy was it hard ^^

Soderling def. Stepanek 6-4 6-7(6) 6-3 after hilarious match

Stepanek saved 7mps in 2nd set
Soderling was 5-2* 40-30, *5-3 40-15, 5-4* 40-15 and 6-6 6-4* (tb) up in 2nd set

hilarious match really. Stepanek couldn't go with monumentum and it's the reason why Toad clinched it.

good stuff guys

No one posting this ? It looked like quite a battle between these two. Too bad it wasn't on one of the show courts. Sexy saved at least 3 MP's in second set, but Toad came on top in the third.

Haha, Soderling doing his best to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Impressive to close it out comfortably in the decider, would have been a tough defeat to swallow!

Sexy has bigger things on the cards with the women of Monte Carlo. Well played Toad.

i thought soderling was going to tank the 3rd set after choking so badly in the 2nd...

Personally find it as boring as hell, it is difficult to call it a video.
