I decided we might as well create a thread for the Japanese no.1 :yeah:

He has had some pretty decent results on the challenger tour and nearly qualified for the Wimbledon MD this year.

hope the Japanese can form some healthy competition driving them to a higher level!

Indeed I saw him briefly in his qualifying match at Roehampton but I left after he won the first set. It was a good contest but he must have been outlasted by his more experienced opponent.

07-28-2007, 07:12 PM
what did you make of his game, Jimnik?

07-29-2007, 02:58 AM
He was trying to come into the net a lot which was good because he was mostly being overpowered from the back of the court. I wouldn't call him an outright serve-volleyer, he wasn't charging in on every point. But he didn't have much power so when he wanted to take control of the rallies he had to rely on his speed and accuracy.

Thanks ;) I just watched his match against Peng Sun in the Davis Cup and I would say you described his game really well :)

Does anyone want the link of his match against Sun?

Soeda won the Manta challenger in Ecuador :bigclap:

He has been droping in the rankings, this is a good start to get back in form and achieve more results consistently.

08-20-2007, 01:58 PM
:yeah: Well done Go

Time for a bump. :D

Go has been playing well this year on the challenger tour, 3 titles, 1 semi final and 2quarterfinals.
He is close to the top 100 also, currently at 115.
This week, he plays at Izmir I think.

He plays Ti Chen in round one.

05-27-2008, 03:27 PM
Yes, 115... so far it's a good year for Soeda. Made alot of improvement in his ranking and already 3 challenger titles. :)

05-28-2008, 10:02 AM
he won 75 75 :yeah:

Plays Rehnquist now. :D

05-28-2008, 08:31 PM
Go lost :(

01-14-2009, 03:10 PM
in his 3rd set vs. Jo Sirianni Aussie Open quali he managed to turn a 5-0-lead into a 6-8-loss

that's so bad, it's almost funny:o

01-16-2009, 08:21 AM
apart from Jo having the aussie crowd behind him...thats a very sad outcome from Go.

guess thats what separating him from a top player, its all in the head if not the heart.

Huh, where was this thread? I cannot have missed it in this Asian subforum, as there were only a couple of threads...

Soeda won the Pingguo challenger in China on Sunday March 20 and is certain to break into top 100 for the very first time when the new rankings are released next Monday. :)

This will be the first time in 37 years since two Japanese players were ranked inside top 100 at the same time!

Congrats, Go! :yeah:

03-30-2011, 11:29 AM
Great stuff Go! Hope he can continue his good form.

04-26-2011, 06:33 AM
Soeda def. Smyczek 7-5 4-6 7-6(5) in R1 in Sarasota. :)
A very good win for him considering clay is his worst surface and Smyczek just won the USTA's RG WC playoff.

01-05-2012, 11:18 AM
Soeda def. Dodig 7-6(6) 6-3 in Chennai yesterday! :)
It's his second career QF at the ATP level.
With this result he might have secured the ATF WC for AO.
Good luck vs Stan today!

06-26-2012, 04:24 PM
Congrats to Soeda for his first victory at a Grand Slam. :)
He beat Kunitsyn 6-3 6-2 6-1!

His game suits grass and his FH was in a very good form today.
Good luck in R2!

Go Soeda def. Lim Yong-Kyu of South Korea during their singles match in the second round of the Davis Cup Asia/Oceania Zone Group 1 tennis tournament in Tokyo on April 7, 2013.

Go Soeda seals Davis cup playoff victory by defeating Alejandro Falla in 4 sets, I'm really happy for Soeda and the Japanese team.
This has to be one of his biggest career win to date, to come back and win 3 straight sets after dropping the first in the 5th deciding rubber.

Just awesome!
