Re: WWW RG QF: Nadal vs. Soderling

First match they play where I think Soderling looking at the matches they have played in RG 2011 should be a slight favorite. But Nadal will of course be the real favorite due to past accomplishments. But I'd say Soderling will serve very well, be hard to break and clinch a close match in 4 sets

My head is telling me Soderling, but my conscious is telling me Nadal.

All down to Soderling's level. He plays his best and Nadal is out of here.

Do it Robin, 4 sets.

Re: WWW RG QF: Nadal vs. Soderling

Soderling has been playing with controled power. Nadal has strugled, coming close to loosing to Isner and beating very low ranked players. I think Soderling will dominate Nadal in a similar fashion to Simon. Nadal has not been hitting with as much depth and pace as we are accustomed to.

Soderling in 4.

Federer: Future number one.

Fed vs Rafa

Wimbledon: 7-2
U.s open: 5-2
AO: 4-1

WTF: 6-0
Weeks at number one: 302-140(about)

Really no contest

Re: WWW RG QF: Nadal vs. Soderling

Neither player are playing at a high enough level on a consistent basis where you can predict this match outcome. I think Robin will be ultra confident and ultra determined. I think Rafa will fight hard and will see this as a must win match, but I also think he's broken right now in terms of his game. He's just in a slump. If he finds a way to turn it around, he'll win, but I'm not too confident he's going to be able to do that.

Re: WWW RG QF: Nadal vs. Soderling

Nadal is not going to be able to get by this one playing at the level he has been. Even though I personally would love to see Soderling take this, I think Rafa has enough to beat him in a hotly contested 5 setter.

Simon isn't Nadal on any level, though. Can't be compared.

They can in terms of how they can change pace, offer something different in defence. Simon can slice, keep the ball low and give Soderling a different ball, Nadal just loops it back deep.

Nadal in 3. Haters will be bitching once again about his opponent playing "worst tennis of his life".
