Rotterdam QF: Soderling over Youzhny 6-4 7-6(5)

Not a great match, but Robin got it done in the end. Win this now.

IMO good match, Soderling finally looks like a stable mental player, but needs to win some tie-breaks against Federer...

It just never became entertaining for me. Quality of play was decent but in no way extraordinary.

Yeah, agreed. Both solid from the baseline and it was a pure passion game.

That was a real battle. Not tons of overwhelming winners, but great baseline duels.

Youhzny played great, he would have won against most players indoor today. But Robin played his best when it absolutely mattered, so kudos for that.

Soderling wants to remain as number 4 badly.

A "Soderling - Tsonga" final would be epic.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.

Re: Rotterdam QF: Soderling over Youzhny 6-4 7-6(5)

great fight, and impressive from Söderling with few unforced errors.

His face looks tired but he's very focused

Youzhny served very well but made a little bit too many UE (actually he tried to go more for his shots than usually because he knows that he's used to being dominated by Söderling's power : in their previous matches it was like that)

Agreed with the OP, not a great match
Hoping for a Tsonga - Soderling final
