Gonzalez def. Soderling 6-2, 3-1 ret.

I wonder what happened to Soders?

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Too bad about Soderling. Never like to see a player get hurt and retire. Luck for Gonzalez.

Robin represented as the lone Swede and did a KICK ASS job.

Yes, in TV they showed the moment when Soderling was serving and felt his shoulder. I found it strange when he suddenly started just to put the ball on play. Then, he called trainer, but couldn't stay in the match. Good decision to retire, since Robin was not finding ways to beat Gonzalez.

Too bad for Robin, that type of thing always stinks.

Gonzo was looking pretty good. His backhand has really gotten better and he has far few errors (or at least it seems to me) than he used to.

I like a lot of players.

Too bad for Robin. Two breaks this year due to the knee, and now a week of play - and shoulder problems. He may skip Casablanca now.
