hey Karin and Glen, and yes I did see it Karin
Roger should be up next after Serena finishes her opponent off, I'm so tired and didn't sleep enough but I'm keeping myself awake to catch this match, hopefully Fed will impress and make his presence felt in the draw
Well Serena has dealt with her opp quickly so you should really be able to get yourself a good look at Feds in a couple of minutes.
Karin, Don't know how much of it you saw, but Soderling pouching on the 2nd serve, even made Nadal start simply spinning in his 1st serve just to start the point and AVOID having to hit a 2nd. This was a tactically well planned and executed match by Soderling. (I'm stunned to say that, almost couldn't believe my eyes)
I saw just about an hour of the match, so most definitely not enough.
Söderling carried out the proper tactics indeed, but most of all, he deserves the props for being able to carry it out
BTW, it once again just confirms my idea that the very dry and hot weather at RG truly benefits the players with a solid 1st serve. Hope it stays that way, but I'm sure it won't - the weather forecasts are that it will probably get a lot cooler and will start raining midway the week.
It will be very interesting to see how he matches up against Davy, who WILL step inside the baseline and take the court position away. Can Soderling even get close to reproducing his level from yesterday, when faced with a guy basically trying to do the same thing to him, he did to Nadal. Should be very interesting indeed.
Indeed, I'm very much looking forward to that match!
BTW isn't it remarkable that Denko once again makes a silent upwards move throughout the draw, the folks are barely noticing him again... hopefully he'll manage to make it to the semis. Wouldn't at all mind it if he'd end up in the final.
Feddie is out there on court right now folks. Enjoy the match!
