Toad loving the indoor stuff as per usual.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Serves dictate the match. After the first set Tsonga starts to serve amazing. Söderling could'nt win barely a point when he returns. In the first he won most of the rallies against Tsonga but then there were only few rallies. A bad service game and the second set was lost. In set 3 both serves very strong, you could have the feeling Isner plays against Karlovic. But then there was a quick end, Tsonga lost his momentum and his serve, and Söderling could break and win the title.

Good for Soderling! Maintains his No. 4 position.

Tsonga was serving exceptionally well through a set and a half and suddenly collapsed in the 8th game of the 3rd set when everyone was prepared for the final tie-break

Soderling isn't the real #4. The real #4 will get his ranking back after spring.

That said, Soderling is a worthy top 5 player and a very, very good player. He won this title playing nowhere near his best and with Murray not caring about the tournament that much, there was no one to stop him winning.

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 2 WINS, 7 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 11 WINS, 5 finals, 11 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Olympic gold and silver medals, 1 Davis Cup title...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 558-166...
TITLES: 35 and counting...

Tought match to play for both, the breaks were mostly pure giveaways. In between a whole lot of serving. Volleys really worked for Robin though, that's a positive. Keep that ranking!

Soderling and Murray aren't on the same level.Murray is the 4th best player in this era so far not Soderling.
