Soderling should win this hence Roddick has played mugs and turkeys along the way.

Andy's 4th time in the SF here at IW. Lost to Hewitt (2005) and Nadal (2007, 2009) in previous appearances.

Despite the h2h, this has got to be by far Andy's best chance of making the final. It remains the only major American event he hasn't won.

Well, this surely is a tough call.

Söderling looked great today, but at the same time, still showed signs of his mental vulnerability - not being able to close out the match in straights, DF'ing in the TB.

Roddick on the other hand is of course by far the more experienced player, and seems to be doing very well as well.

Ugh. Okay, when put a gun against my head, I'd say Roddick in three, but I wouldn't at all mind to be proven wrong.

Best of luck to both of them, and may it be a great match!

Re: WWW IWSF: Roddick [7] vs. Soderling [6]

Soderling's first semifinal on this level.

A tie-break should be a key to this match. I remember that 2 years ago I wrote on MTF that tie-breaks would be crucial for Soderling's breakthrough. Last year he was sucking in tie-breaks once again but won amazingly important tie-breaks against Pics and Nadal in Paris. This year has been good so far in TB's (record 6-2) but can lose to Roddick 6-7 6-7 and demons will back.

Roddick has a chance because tbs are highly likely. Both players have been nearly unbreakable during the tournament.

Roddick was pathetic against boredo; querrey and even Isner have better groundstokes today then the duck; Soderling is by far the more complete player; not too much trouble for Soders.....

Roddick in 3, cause of his Tiebreak skills.

If Robin can get enough returns into play he'll win. Very much 50/50, imo.

Like them both and thay are both playing pretty well. I'll go for Soderling in 3. I think he'll win the title.
