Dusseldorf Soderling def Golubev 6-7 7-6 6-3

Robin should have won in str8s if he put in the effort. Another win playing on 50% against a lower ranked opponent going for broke on every shoot almost.

On to RG already. Robin don't seem to be affected much from his groin anyway

Re: Dusseldorf Soderling def Golubev 6-7 7-6 6-3

Soderling's frequency of winning tight matches amazes me

Golubev led *3:0 in the 2nd TB.

No, he was four times two points away: 6:5* (30-30) and 5:4*, 6:6, 7:7 in the tie-break. Soderling came with strong serves in the most important moments.

Its an Exho mate, Robin didn't put much effort in the return games untill he broke for 6-3 in the third. If he can get a draw like your big idol for a change maybe he can make a SF atleast

It is not an exhibition event. ATP points are on offer.

It seems Robin has some problem with his matches, this one is the second when he was near the loss.

Never ever give up

50%? Stop with the Rafatard-like exaggerations. Robin has lost to Golubev before and Golu's game (when it's on) doesn't really suit Robin. Good mental effort to dig it out here, he could just as easily have lost in 2.

Now get some rest, champ. Good luck in Paris.

But this was a dead rubber + Robin's 250 column is already full. So yeah, exho.

Golubev had some insane winners in this match, imagine if this guy could clean up his game. He's got good movement, alright serve and can pull off winners out of nothing. Just spraying too much to be consistent and doesn't have the mentality.

Re: Dusseldorf Soderling def Golubev 6-7 7-6 6-3

Golubev did a good match. Soderling wasn't that good at converting BPs. Only won 3/11 but Golubevs defense should be credited. Sod did however win 84% of his 1st serv points and that's a solid number on clay. What matter's is that he could step it up when needed to win the match. Ppl might think differently but a lot of the top seeds in RG will probably find themselves in TBs well before the QF. It's good to see Robin playing well in deciding sets all year. Only deciding set (3rd/5th sets) he has lost all season was the one against Dolgopolov in AO where he ran out of steam.

All in all a good week for Soderling. 3-0 in matches despite playing for nothing but his swedish friends and his honor. Was able to work on his clay game a little on a surface pretty similar to RG. The groin injury doesn't seem to bother him that much and will likely bother him even less come RG.

He will move into RG with a lot of confidence but also a lot of pressure. Previously I would say he'd likely self-destruct if he got into problems in the early rounds but he has been so clutch lately in deciding sets. Not that worried for him. He will likely reach QF or deeper and then anything can happen.

Re: Dusseldorf Soderling def Golubev 6-7 7-6 6-3

Soderling still seeking for form since Marseille, would be better for him to find it in the next few days, otherwise he may considerably fall in rankings.
