soda wasn't truly as good as the scoreline suggests. too many errors from both players.

Toad didn't need to be that good. But Simon should be a better test for the Toad.

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".

Soderling was great in the first set, Mayer picked up in the second while Sod dipped for most of the rest of the match.

Lots of credit to Mayer for fighting so hard when he was down 5*-1 in the third, played some great points and kept it exciting for the crowd till the end, even if it didn't affect the outcome of the match.

Sod vs Simon should be good.

Good match by Soderling. Hit 27 winners to 19 errors but most of those when he was in a comfortable lead. Started all three sets going up 2-0 and often lost a slight bit of focus after that. Mayer ultimatly disappointing but Soderling is in crazy form.

Averaging his FS over 200km/h. FH is deadly. So was the BH today. Next match vs Simon can be a good one

soderling advances untoubled. i don't think simon can stop him. a quarter-final with nadal would be a great battle

Grigor Dimitrov | Rafael Nadal | Juan Martin del Potro | Andy Murray

Soderling was on fire in parts of this match, I can only think his level kept dropping due to how poor Mayer was playing.

Robin had like 10 UE's, then went on to paint 9 more in the last three games or so.. He was playing a damn solid match.

Soderling and Ferrer, two guys playing well so far and flying under the radar.

Fan list: Cilic, Federer, Coric


P.S. Watch out for Donna Vekic and Borna Coric, 2020. Hopman cup winners. - posted in 2011, let's see if it happens

If you wanna try show irony in the matchups then use matches like Falla-Kubot and Chela-Rosol instead.. Not like Soderling, Nadal etc. shouldn't be in the 4th round..
