They are 1:1 in the H2H. The Colonel won the first match in 2007 in Dubai, Robin 2009 in Washington.

Robin should win this match.

Constant power hitting should get it done.

Big serving and solid returning and powerhitting should be enough to repeat the result from Washington considering this is also indoors. I had Robin as a favorite aginst Nole aswell considering Nole hasn't played any descent players and had a w.o in 1/4 wich helped Mikail some today against an uninspired serb.

People greatly underestimate Youzhny's chances here. If he is on his toes he can suck up the pressure and frustrate Söderling greatly with his slice. Both guys have a negative record in finals, but Mikhail hasn't choked on opportunities like Robin has in the past.

Youz has spent nine hours on court to get to the final, Soed over three hours less.

All in all, Robin is the favourite, but he doesn't always handle that well. It will be an interesting contest.
