IWQF: Soderling def. Murray 6-1 7-6(4)

Sod felt guilty for not giving the crowd a match so choked badly but regained form when he thought he gave them enough. Such a giver.

Pretty much a hammering until the very end.

Soderling played a very aggressive but clean match, didn't give Murray many freebies at all, served pretty well, thank you very much.

Murray was underpowered, lost for a strategy, not serving great, and missing things like sliced backhands, his shots were generally landing with nowhere near enough depth and Soderling was given time, height and position to just whale away with those huge groundies.

And then Soderling choked serving for it at 30-0 at 5-4 having missed 2mps in the last game, the key thing here is that Andy took advantage but he was given an advantage to take - up until then Soderling gave him nothing.

And then at 0-30 his own serve at 5-6 Soderling woke up again, tightened the game up again and stopped the charity, and normal service resumed in the tiebreak.

It was entirely out of Andy's hands today, he had no way of controlling proceedings, his only openings came when Soderling faltered, and when he recovered, that was that.

The way Murray played it would have been a travesty had Soderling handed the match over.

Just hope Robin goes on and wins it now.

Well deserved. Made it harder than it should have been, but comfortable at the end. Kudos to Robin, Go win this thing.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Murray was awful every match this tournament.

Soderling was outstanding every match this tournament.


Nothing changed today, so the result was correct. Everyone was anticipating Murray would lift his game under the challenge (previous matches being so soporifically easy). He didn't, at all.

Re: IWQF: Soderling def. Murray 6-1 7-6(4)

Makes you wonder which is more benign these days, Murray's rally shots or Novak's serve.
Think both of them have overachieved so far this year considering the way they play.

Pathetic stuff from Andy, to lose to Soderling, like that.

Toad couldve won 62, 63 or 64 and almost choked but finally overcame that 0 30 in 5-6. He outplayed Murray completely
good for the game.

Re: IWQF: Soderling def. Murray 6-1 7-6(4)

Awful choke, but definitely made up for in coming from 0-30 down in the next game and winning the TB.
Overall, a total beatdown. Way to go, Robin

Good performance from Toad. Murray was a joke. This is what happens when you sit around and feel sorry for yourself for a month. You get a beating from guys like Soderling.
