Well, I'll never count out a 5-times champion to rise to the occasion, and Sod's level may well take a plummet - it all happened before.

Not at all. Soderling's fans are not a bunch of 12 year old fan boys/girls that scream the loudest, that's why.

I agree with you. All in all Soderling has some of the most cordial fans.

Simon has more in his game to force errors out of an in-form Robin than Nadal has (ability to keep ball low, change pace a bit)

Soderling gets blisters, Soderling starts playing badly. Not a coincidence lol.

The blisters probably aren't physically bothering him that much, but those kind of niggling injuries can take your mind out of the game very easily.
