Well he won't keep it up because he is a bottler and always will be.

But he's always good for a win in a MM event.

Good match from Soderling, impressive how he was able to threaten on all of Berdych's service games on grass in that first set. Looked like they both played relatively similarly except Soderling was serving, returning and hitting his groundstrokes better than Berdych did today. Berdych did serve better in the second set though and it was relatively close but Soderling played a good return game to break serve and subsequently take the match.

Berdych is going to be lower seed for Wimbledon (loses 225 points from Halle last year, which would make him 20+ seed) , but he is in shit form so doesn't make a difference . With this kind of form he is not a threat to anyone.

However, Soderling is a float in Wimbledon. He is not likely to be a seed there (unless he wins Halle) so I think noone of the top seeds would like to see him in the 1st or second round. He is very dangerous on grass.

However, I would like to see big Rob against the Faker in the first round of Wimbledon. The Faking Slut has had enough of futures draws in the first rounds of big tournaments so far this year.

Good form from Toad. 3rd round exit at Wimbledon awaits.

slightly odd that these 2 have never played a breaker in 6 atp meetings.

The defending champ is out!

Seriously, what a loser this Berdych is. Soderling isn't much better but I'm glad he won. Good luck.

One of them is bound to blow it the closer it gets to a tiebreak.

Birdman has to go down in history as one-off the most disappointing tennis players in history. He has all the prerequisits to be a GREAT player but amounts to nothing.
His only rival in this department is nalbandian..How in the world you could beat federer 8 times,,Dominating him @ times & have nothing much to show for it....
But these two MENTAL cases it is too be expected BUT still a disappointment.

Hilarious.

Usually you use Karpov vs. Kasparov, or whatever those chess guys names are, but this time you threw us all for a loop.

Looking good, but I've given up taking anything for granted with Robin. He can have a mental breakdown at any time, causing his game to fall apart entirely, no matter who he plays.
