Robin Söderling def. Juan Monaco 6-3 7-6 (4) to win Båstad

Well done Toad, first Swede to win a claycourt title since his coach Magnus Norman won in Båstad 2000 and his first claycourt title of his career.

Excellent week for Monaco, who enjoyed the nightlife in Båstad and played some good tennis after the disappointment of the DC loss in Ostrava.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

How much the tie-break? 7-4.
Well I guess I can´t start a Soda win thread.

Looked almost like an instant reply of his semi yesterday. Good win.

Way to go Robin! Great to see him grab the title for the home crowd and he shows he means business.

He tried to give the 2nd set to Pico, but Pico couldn't deliver.

Soda was dodgy at second set, Monaco had one set point at 5-4* 40-30* but couldn´t take it, in the opportunities points Soda was okay and never let be down a break and this helped him at second set.

Bit shaky at times, but he deserved a title after the last few weeks he's had.

Wow, is there any other player whose favorite surfaces are clay and indoor? He is a true all-surface threat.

Re: Robin Söderling def. Juan Monaco 6-3 7-6 (3) to win Båstad

Too solid from Soderling in the first set, no chance for Pico. In the second when a break down Pico started fighting really hard and the Toad started doing some mistakes. Too bad Pico didn't play a good tiebreak, but I'm glad he didn't give up even being outplayed by Soderling.

Excellent week for Pico after the Davis Cup losses, it couldn't come in a better time. He should go to Hamburg with confidence.

Congrats to Soderling on winning at home.

I'm very happy for Robin. Hopefully, Magnus will take him even further. A few more Nadull violations would be in order

Once again Robin got tight in the 2nd, but Pico raised his level several notches. That double and UE from Pico in the breaker came out of nowhere, but nevertheless, Robin played much better serving at *5-6 and in the breaker than he did at *3-2 and *4-3. A great week for both guys, and fantastic to see how much the win means for Robin.

What has Nadal got to do with today's match?

Because Soderling hates grass less than clay. :retard:
