Ginepri has done his part for the season, time to go back to mugging. If by some miracle that's not the case, I still doubt Soda would allow him to come to the position to win this.

No way Robby takes it! He is not a grass monster, so Soda in 3 :help:

I like Robby. He lose in three unfortunately.

It's tough to tell how either player will perform in this one. Ginepri definitely has a chance.

Bob has some evil luck with his Wimbledon R1s: Sod, Hewitt, Gonzo, Gonzo, Fish, Sexylips, Tipsarevic, Clement.

yeah, all of Robby's Wimbledon opponents have made it to at least the Round of 16 at Wimbledon at some point in their career, except for Fish (who has made the finals of 3 European grass court tournaments).

Tipsarevic - R16 of Wimby (got past him)
Verdasco - R16 of Wimby (got past him)
Ferrero - QF of Wimby (got past him)
Clement - QF of Wimby
Stepanek - QF of Wimby
Gonzalez - QF of Wimby
Grosjean - SF of Wimby
Hewitt - won Wimby

Soderling made the R16 of Wimby for the first time last year, where he lost to Federer, following his Roland Garros finals appearance.

If an upset doesn't happen, then I at least hope it's a good match.

soderling should take this easily unless his inner mug comes up in which case it may go to a 4 or 5 setter but he will stil win

Robin should win easily. This is not hardcourt, it's grass, and Robin historically struggles down under, so the result from earlier this year does not play a factor. Robin in 3.

I don't know, Soderling didn't look good in SF and F of RG.

Grass will actually benefit Ginepri in this matchup

if Ginepri can produce his best tennis he can win this

He loves the angles and thats how you expose Soderlings lack of naturtal movement on the surface...and hes one of the best returners out there

He will need to serve well too....and his serve can be big one day but the other he can barely put it in

Conditions are mild. Should help Soderling. Weather plays a bigger part in Soderling's game than the surface imo.

fair enough

but to say that grass helps Soderling in this matchup is just not true

It can, any fast, low bounce surface is good vs. Soderling, neutralizes a lot of what he likes to do, and exposes his lack of speed. With that said, Robby isn't very good on grass.

Are you saying that based on his results on grass or his style of play?

A little of both. His results on grass have been hit or miss. His game can play on all surfaces but he plays his best on hard obviously, also his movement on grass isn't the best.
