No, when he's making basic backhand slice errors I'm not feeling too good.

Some excellent defence from Soderling and it's making Andy's life very difficult.

bp for 0-4

Gonna have to do a better volley off a s&v off a second serve than that.

0-4 it is.

If he can't attack his way through Soderling (and he can't), and he can't defend his way through Soderling (and right now that's looking a tough ask) then he can only try and wait Soderling out and hope for a dip.

That's not a good place to be, fate out of your hands.

Definitely needs more depth on his shots though, too many landing far too short.

Of course the other problem here is that Soderling is playing extremely well.

I still really think that AO defeat has hurt him badly mentally. His confidence confidence just isn't there, and his attitude is disappointing.

I hope when they hit the clay, where Andy's own expectations are naturally lower, he can get a few results that build him back up again.

Of course I'm not counting him out of this match/tournament. If he can claw his way back into this, he'd be the favourite to get to the final and win the whole thing.

You may well be right, there still seems to be an element of going through the motions right now.

Avoids the complete humiliation of the bagel but the breadsteak is still on.

6-1 to Soderling.

And there's the break, another nothing backhand slice lands 5 feet long.

Well the good news is that this may well be over soon.

Soderling is giving nothing away today and Andy's feeling very generous.
