Well it's Soderking first match on clay this year so I think he'll only get better from now on.

Roger Federer | Benoît Paire| Stanislas Wawrinka | Nick Kyrgios

5-4 40-15 Chela in 2nd, massive choke. But decent first clay match for Sod.

Rusty Hardcourt Robin great that he kept his calm and took the chance when Chela Choked a bit and started cutting down the UE!!

Offcourse Lopez in the next match is no dream when still rusty but Lopez is in pretty the same situation, i think Chela was more dangerous.

Choke? Soderling saved the two set points with two backhand winners. The match rested on whether he hit winers or errors, Chela did nothing.

I know Robin was poor during both his SF matches at Indian Wells/Miami, but he really has become solid mentally overall.

Congrats to Robin on his win today, hope he wins the tournament.

Re: Barcelona R1 - Soderling def. Chela 7-5 7-5

Chela was Robin's biggest threat before the semis, that's how easy his quarter is lol. I fully expect Robin win his next 2 matches much easier, and we'll see where we go from there. Keep it up, Robin!!

Ernests Gulbis. Robin Soderling. Tomas Berdych.

Del Potro ~ Tsonga ~ Simon ~ Chardy ~ Verdasco ~ Djokovic ~ Gasquet

The Federror #1 reign is over for good. The king is dead. Praise Odin!!

Chela didn't choke, Errorling just started playing like Soderking when Chela had sps.

Good win - bit of a pita playing your first clay match, against a confident opponent, in slow night conditions, with a dodgy knee to worry about.

He has a decent draw too, with Berdy out of his half, and no Nadal waiting in the final.
