Ryan will meet Soderling for the second time this year, it will surely be one sided match, at least my favorite young gun is in the draw.

What? Becker withdrew and Ryan replace it? But no chance for him, Soderling's best tournament usually. I'll go with easy three sets.

When will this be announced? I searched and found nothing.

Harrison, if he plays this match, actually I think has a 20% chance of winning. I certainly wouldn't count him out. Glad he is in (????) the MD.

Not confirmed,not official. Don't blame me if its gonna turn out to be fake. I don't think it's fake, since his aunt told me he got in.

what happened to Becker?

Filo V.
05-23-2011, 09:39 PM
I think Becker had elbow surgery. Elbow/arm, something like that. It's been a while and he's been out, and he's not a clay player, so not surprising he withdrew.

If this is true then I'm glad Ryan got to enter the MD... but that he has to play Robin the first round is just terrible. :(

Someone who can hit the ball incredibly hard through clay against someone who comes from a nation that's well adjusted to hardcourts. No match-up can possible get any worse than this. Soderling in some 6-3 6-3 6-4 type victory.

Soderling to grind threw! Not guna be a classic me thinks but Soders Shud get threw! I wonder how far he will sneek threw the draw? If he meets rafa in quarters all I hope for is Soders to at least take 1 set!

Soderling to recover from his abysmal form and send this snob back to his uncles mansion. 6-4 6-4 6-1. I want Soderling to clobber this preppy kid like a Lion teaching its cub some god damn manners

Thanks. I don't expect much from Harrison in this one, but Soderling had some issues putting away Querrey recently so it's not like he's in his best form.

I sure hope this is true...Robin was pretty convincing against him in Brisbane earlier this year, but Ryan showed good signs. Ryan will have to play a hell of a match to win but I think he can sustain a good level for some period of it

Will Harrison get 10 points if he lose?

MaxPower

A bit unexpected but it's likely not gonna bother Soderling. I'm sure he'd rather play Becker than a young kid with a nothing to lose situation but they played in the beginning of the year in Brisbane and Harrison was to weak to have a shot. Had something like 1 BP all match and struggled heavily.

On the other hand it's Robins first match, different conditions to Dusseldorf where he played just days ago and so. Could at least be somewhat interesting!

Good luck to the young American, tough the loss seems as the obvious choice here.

But I'm sure he'll prove to be a tougher match up for soda than benji would ever be on clay

haha read about Harrison that when he failed in the RG 2011 qualifier in the final match against Javier Marti, he smashed a racket and also threw another racket up in a tree. Seems to have quite the temper

So does Soderling. Could be a lot of racket smashing going on in this match depending on how it develops.

But I hope Ryan at least gets a good performance in. :)
