Federer had a complete mental collapse in that 1st set tiebreak and gave up.

He just held in there and waited for the Soderling error. His consistency paid off. He'll need to step it up against Rafa tomorrow.

Soda was not great, just enough to beat this dumbass of Tsonga, Federer made no mistakes.

Fed looked lazy this entire match. Of course a lazy Fed still beats a regular Soderling.

Robin looked like he didn't care to much just wanted a good practise and then off to Brisbane, totally went down a couple of gears in the 2nd and in the 3rd and played and served pretty careless at times. Fed looked good and served very well.

Would have been silly for Robin to win again here hence to all the losses in the ATP tour....

yeah, henke007, i think soda has enough confidence in his sleeve to win Brisbane. I don't see anyone stopping him since Roddick is hardly his level now.

After the sudden collapse at the end of 2nd set Soderling didn't seem bothered anymore

Re: Abu Dhabi Exho SF: Federer d. Soderling 6-7 6-3 6-3

how long was the match ?

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).
