Soldering knocks out Schuettler

4-6 4-6 7-5 6-3 6-3.

A great match. Schuettler looked in control and then wow Robin played some great tennis. Too bad for Schuettler he's had a horrible start to the yr and he's going to lose heaps of points seeing he made the final last yr.

Re: Soldering knocks out Schuettler

Wow, I'm very surprised. That's a lot of lost points for Rainer!

Re: Soldering knocks out Schuettler

Oh poor rainer. It was a tough first draw and they battled it out but I can't say it was *too* much of a surprise. He hadn't been playing too well. Gosh judging by the looks of things so far there are going to be a lot of "upsets" in the men's AO this year.

Re: Soldering knocks out Schuettler

That's a great fall down for Rainer. He doesn't deserve that. Söderling is a tough opponent, and still growing, but I didn't think that Rainer would lose this match. Moya, El Aynaoui and Schüttler out.. Wow!

Re: Soldering knocks out Schuettler

He's going to fall all the way from 6th to 6th

Point wise, it sucks, though.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Soldering knocks out Schuettler

Yes, well, I'm feeling very proud of myself for having predicted this one.

I did think it would go 4 sets though.

Re: Soldering knocks out Schuettler

Will he seriously stay #6? That is odd.

LOL Star congrats then..

I am still in shock. I mean not to insult Soderling, but I did expect Rainer to go deep in the draw. Good job Robin!

Re: Soldering knocks out Schuettler

Schuettler has lost 5 straight ATP matches. Geez, he's almost in as bad shape as Juan Carlos. But seriously, I think Rainer may still be exhausted from his long 2003 season, both physically and mentally. A good rest after this loss would do him good.

Djokovic // Del Potro // Paire // Thiem // M. Zverev // Youzhny
Coric // Khachanov // Donaldson // A. Zverev // Bublik
Ferrero // Rafter

Not really.

He had about 1000 points on Moya, who isn't playing. I haven't checked... perhaps Nalbandian can pass him if he wins, but I'm not even sure of that.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Soldering knocks out Schuettler

Bad blow to his ranking points, although not the ranking itself...yet. I can't say that I expected this, but it really isn't a shocker either.

Re: Soldering knocks out Schuettler

Yes it will take another few months for him to plummet in the rankings

OK, thanks. I am not that into rankings really Well it is good for him that he will keep his ranking, but the points.. ouch. It is going to be tough to qualify for the Masters Cup with such a start of the season.

Re: Soldering knocks out Schuettler

Regarding points, Schuettler will have 2510. Nalbandian can pass Schuettler only if he wins (2810), and match him if he is runner up.
Henman or Philippoussis could pass Schuettler if either of them win.

In fact, if Agassi fails to make the fourth round, Schuettler will actually overtake him for 5th position.
