Robin in 2, methinks. Simon is simply not a good enough pusher to threaten Soda. Unless Robin has a horrible day, that is.

Soderling in 2. Simon doesn't have a shit to trouble him. I saw them 2 years ago in some indoor tournament and Soderling just beat his ass.

Soderling should definitely win this in straights.

Re: WWW Paris TMS R2: Soderling [4] vs. Simon

Soderling in 2 relatively easy sets for this one. Simon is getting his mojo back, but he's still not quite there.

Mind, Simon is the superior player overall.

Santiago GIRALDO, Donald YOUNG, Gael MONFILS, Juan Martin DEL POTRO, Alexandr DOLGOPOLOV

Re: WWW Paris TMS R2: Soderling [4] vs. Simon

Soderling because this court actually looks like it's suited for him.

1.Indoors - check
2.Serve bites the court really nasty - check
3.On court speed relatively slow with a "friendly" bounce - check

Plus, Simon looked horrendous in his Golubev match.

Uh, no. Simon wins 250s but his slam results are simply terrible. He's got nothing on Soderling.

Re: WWW Paris TMS R2: Soderling [4] vs. Simon

Simon is most definitely a Top15 player. But let's not forget that Soderling is ranked 5th atm and not particularly playing his best tennis. So there you have it.

A plan B maybe? More career titles? Foot speed?
