That was a terrible match!!

Soderling got the job done though which is the most important thing. Top player, he saved his best stuff till the end.

Pics was returning amazingly in the 5th set, he was a little bit unlucky with the return at 5:4 (30-15), 5 cm closer to the line and probably would've had double match point.

In terms of Ferrer been able to capitalise on Soderlings errors to extend it to 5 sets. I enjoyed it.

Good effort by Ferrer, I didn't think it would be a pushover but Ferrer almost won :eek:

Keep on going Soderling

The match was decent over the first 3 sets, but then became absolutely pathetic. Robin didn't look very good in the heat, served mediocre and returned like a clown. Ferrer returned really well but in the end gave the match away. Sod will take the win and hope for a better day on wednesday..

I don't fear Soderling beating Nadal very much after that.

Hey :wavey:

He played 9 str8 sets witout loosin his serve, he was bound to get some sort of reaction and struggle a bit especially in the heat being put on court 12.

The only real horrible service game came at 40-0 in the 4th set when he gave that away after wasting 3 BP.s the game before.

Anyways thank good Rafa didn't get a BYE out of it!!

Robin :worship:

If Soderling loses to Nadull, then Murray will deal with him :shrug: Even Tsonga would probbaly deal with him :shrug:

Wow, Sod! Glad he managed to pull it off, having obvious problems with his health after that first set - I didn't see what it was exactly, but read that he had breathing problems. Must have had something to do with the heat.
Rest up now Robin. :hug:

David - great fight, just fell short in that final set. Had several good chances to break Sod, but ended up getting broken himself. Too bad, tennis is a cruel game...

:haha:

I wonder who's the 'hater' here. It seems more applicable to you than to most other posters.

Well, Ferrer's returning is like a 100 times better then Nadal's ... So he won't have to play that much rallies. And Nadal is not looking so good to say the least.

I'm really surprised with Soderling's streak of sets played without a tie-break - already 64 in a row!! :o

How is me enjoying a 5 set match i thought would be straight sets for Soda hating on him?


Keep clutching at straws.

ffs he won the match. I dont understand how people complain that you are a choker when you win a 5 set match at a grandslam. What players do finland have? Nieminen who cant even advance past 1st round lol.

Wow, that's pretty amazing for a guy like Robin with great serve and average ROS.

Robin just survived the heat on a side court, next match will not be like this on center court.

the boogeyman soderling is awaiting.
damn u ferrer, u had the chance to make things easy for rafa but u let ur friend down.
bad ferrer bad!

Pathetic from Soda, I really counted on him against Nadal :/.

But a bye for the Spaniard is most likely.

Robin :yeah:
David :hug:

Not the best from Soderling, but possible good he had one tough match before the quarter.

And then Nadaltards say they don't hate Soderling.

Sorry Andy, but I expected more from you. Some Nadaltards may say a lot of stupid things, but MTF is surely much more about people hating Rafa and denying him any merit, even trying to explain away 7 GS (!!) as only a result of luck/pushing/cheating than about the average Nadal fan insulting anyone else.

Since I arrived here about a year ago, I've been really surprised at the amount of undeserved hate and disrespect Nadal gets from many people here. His fans are mostly on the defensive; say whatever, but it won't change that reality. It shows almost in every single thread here.

I do my best to ignore it, it's mostly a bunch of sad people living their lives vicariously, but you are blind if you can't see it.

a tough matchup for soderling and a great effort from dahveed.

Some people are funny OK if he lost the match it would have been horrific. He won his first three matches in str8s under 5 hrs without loosin serve. Ferrer indeed returned alot of serves today and Sod got a real test.

That's true.

But I'm not in the mood for arguing anymore. Some Nadal fans dislike Soda, some don't... Let's leave it at that ;)

Sod alternated between winning easily at 80%, and sub50% stuff where he was a total mug.

I'm more confident of a Rafa win after the 4th round.

Can Soderling beat Nadal? Yes... even quite easily if he really fires.

Soderling can beat Nadal and Murray:wavey:

Looking at the matchups, Murray probably fears Soderling more than he fears Nadal.

Soderling can blow Murray away. Nadal can't.:wavey:

He struggled, but at least he got thru. Roddick struggled and didnt make it. Soda has often problem with heat, once in Miami he even had to retire because of it. Wednesday is new day, different court and probably different, cooler weather.Forecast says max 22 C and cloudy. Nadal will not have bye in QF.

Nice win. Not a great match overall in terms of quality, but it was impressive to see Robin being able to raise his game and hold it together as he finished it in the nick of time. Robin may have a clear advantage in the H2H between these two players, but they have had many tight, battling affairs over the years.

ferrer put up a fight as i expected, can not ask for much more.

soderling will surely have to play much better on wednesday if he is going to beat nadal. cant wait to see this soderling/nadal QF, should be a good one.
