Soderling ought to charge Blake premium rate for this lesson.

Surprise it maybe to some people. The Toad is far from a clay clown and doesn't mind the surface, this result is not a surprise at all.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Nice tank, James. Well you got your clay practice in. Try to do some damage at RG now.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

This is interesting because IMO his game (technical skills and physical efficiency) rather suits to clay. Unfortunately Blake is a headcase, always wrong tactics, always wrong attitude and lack of fighting will cause he loses in a bad style.

he moves better than Roddick IMO, just doesnt have the mentality and fighting spirit that Roddick has and these are much important in clay matches
