So much credit to Robin for this. That final game was a choke from Hewitt with the forehand errors, but Robin was down a break in the fifth, Hewitt had openings in all of the sets to take the match, but Robin held on, stayed mentally solid, and served big when behind. He earned this win, and this result should give him the belief to start to raise his game play.

As for Lleyton, he's proven he can play at this level, but the mental demons and lack of confidence and match fitness have cost him here like it did at the AO v Nalbandian. Hopefully he can stay healthy, he's still capable of threatening the best.

Hewitt was once a mental giant, now a mental midget. Three times serving to stay in the set, 3 sets dropped. Only 1 break point saved if I recall correctly. Up a break in the fifth. Nearly broke my ******* tv!

He broke leading 5-4 in the last set.
Good stuff from Robin.
Great match, best of the tournament... But Tsonga-Dimitrov is exciting too.

Credit to Robin for fighting back from 2-0 down. Should be fairly easy to the QFs from here.

Dman it Lleyton, broken serving to stay in a set three times, only times he even faced break points. If my memory serves me well it was similar to his match against Djokovic last year when he stayed with him all match except the business end of each set. Would have loved to see him go on a run to the quarters.

Sod back from the dead then, hopefully he can make it count.

06-23-2011, 04:11 PM
Robin got all the serves back in the last game, pretty good picture of the match where Robin struggled with his returns for most of it. Vintage serving indoors.

So strong to turn it around like he did. His draw is so tough compared to the rest of the top players.

Good win for Soderling considering the position he was in.

Filo V.
06-23-2011, 04:15 PM
Soderling wasn't amazing at all. He fought hard and hit some good shots, but his serve and his grit is what got him through here, not his shotmaking, he actually played with more margin in the final three sets and started pushing Hewitt back more instead of going for lines. Lleyton was the better player from the baseline, but he started making more errors as the match progressed and he started missing more serves. Whether the pressure got to him or he just got tired, Lleyton's level dropped and that opened the door for Soderling to get back in the match.

06-23-2011, 04:15 PM
For you saying Robin is incapable of switching gears in a match, this one was for you. Without his changes especially in his returns and starting to slice the ball, he would've never won. Rusty couldn't handle the ball as well when he was constantly getting different pace and bounces on the ball to work with, hence the increased amount of unforced errors.

Oh and Rusty shows he's still capable. Hope he can remain injury free for the rest of the season, I'm sure he'll fetch results in the hard court swing if he does.

Rusty couldn't handle the ball as well when he was constantly getting different pace and bounces on the ball to work with, hence the increase in unforced errors.Exactly. Robin had more patience in the last 3 sets and chose his moments a bit more. That was the key.

Concerning Soda's hitting, I thought it was fine but this slow grass really is not Robin's surface. I mean it plays just a little faster than RG but Robin doesn't move as well on it at all.

06-23-2011, 04:20 PM
Epic match, definitely the best so far and well done to both players. Shame for Hewitt as he played great but Soderling upped his game when he went two sets down. He showed that he's still got it though so I hope we see him at Wimbledon again.

06-23-2011, 04:21 PM
Ahh Rusty... so close.... so close..

You gotta give credit to Soderling though, he hung tough and switched to a plan B which he hasn't done a lot of throughout his career. A shame that Hewitt lost all 3 sets serving to stay in it, just gets so tight these days.

Have to take my hat off to Lleyton yet again, the majority of players wouldn't have even turned up to this event in his situation.. still the biggest fighter out there in the grand scheme of things.

By the way, who taught Toad the "Sexy Gooch Blocked Forehand Return"?

06-23-2011, 04:23 PM
A classic dogfight, what a match! The kind of match that indeed deserves two winners but such is impossible in tennis, alas...

During the first two sets Hewitt was playing fantastic tennis. Sod had no clue on how to handle his wide-out serves, his return of serve looked totally absent. Add a bunch of wild FH errors and hence he was down two sets to love, and at that moment I had a very hard time imagining him make a comeback.
However, in the third set, Sod began to read Hewitt's serve a lot better and you could well see his confidence growing-and-growing - leading up to him equaling the score. Still, during the final set, it was very hard to say who would end up being the winner as Hewitt broke early, but Sod immediately managed to repair the damage - to my surprise, as I thought Hewitt would run away with this set at that time. Pure 'testicular fortitude' from Sod there! The fifth set continued to be a tight affair with both players serving very well indeed. It was just one sloppy serve game that cost Hewitt the match, but well, that's how it goes... the winner in a tight match often gets decided on who plays just a couple of big points better than his opponent.

Congrats to Söderling for his amazing victory :hatoff:, kudos and :hug:s to Hewitt for his equally amazing effort. Nice to hear very friendly words from Sod to him in his post-match interview.
Absolutely the best match from the tournament so far, at least among the ones I've been able to watch.

MaxPower
06-23-2011, 04:26 PM
By the way, who taught Toad the "Sexy Gooch Blocked Forehand Return"?

His new coach Fredrik "Fidde" Rosengren has worked him like a dog I think. Check the article thread in his player forum. It shows.

He said something like "the plan is always that robin should be aggressive with his returns but when he misses he must block to get back into it". Soderling knew all the shots but hasn't been using them. Same with his slice. Previously he just added more and more power and that rarely lead the comebacks, often just more errors

Good fight from two fighters. First time robin wins after s 2 sets down he says.

And the match showed that just power is not enough he started to slice the returns and
Hewitt got confused.

Yeah I feel for Hewitt. He played with so much heart and skill. Now that he is older he is also smarter in his shotmaking and serving.

Just like Petzschner that Soderling beat in R1 I think Hewitt deserved to be in R3/R4 at least. Maybe even QF with a good draw. It sucks that a few really stunning grass court players happen to be so low in the rankings

For sure the match of the tournament for sure (actually only one drama match before, Verdasco vs Stepanek) and it seems that Hewitt is often involved in these great ones (like vs Nalby at the AO) and he often loses these one.

Funnily it gets easier now for Robin, he shouldn't have problems with Andreev/Tomic (they have to continue tomorrow) and then a tougher opponent would wait in either Malisse, Melzer or Tursunov.

:worship: :worship:

Three of the best shots of the tournament, wonderful grass court tennis and a courageous attitude for a lot of the match duration weren't enough for Hewitt to win this excellent match, and I do feel for him after contributing so much to this encounter. He's got to be kicking himself over and over again for how the match finished, such a shame.

Really glad Robin found a way to win though. He's top 10 for his consistency but also for his underrated ability to stay in a match and turn things around when you think he's finished. He's won quite a few of these tight ones that separate the boys from the men since his RG 2009 run and that's made such a huge difference.

He started to go for safer returns in that fifth set (some were laughable but in general the strategy worked), and got most balls back. I was impressed by his ability to change his game to get the percentages in his favour. Hewitt looked almost baffled at times at the latter stages of the match by the subtle changes coming from Söderling.

Really happy the Wimbledon organisers understood that this match had the prospects of being a great one. And indeed it was.

the sod was too solid... lleyton lost the bottle exponentially with age...

Lleyton you gun, such a fighter. Tremendous ball striking, haven’t seen him hit it than clean for a long, long time.

Soderling, enjoy Djokovic hammering you into oblivion. :wavey:

and yes... djokovic will demolish soderling if he gets that far... right before djok rips his giant pork sword thru fed and nadal... without the use of lubricant mind you...

fed and nadal are in deep shit...

So glad to see Soderling come back to win. Hewitt was deplorable with the fist pumping and screaming. A very classless player. Soderling was business-like and weathered the storm.

Congrats to Söderling for his amazing victory :hatoff:, kudos and :hug:s to Hewitt for his equally amazing effort. Nice to hear very friendly words from Sod to him in his post-match interview.
Absolutely the best match from the tournament so far, at least among the ones I've been able to watch.

HOLA!

Highly doubt that Hewitt will retire before the Olympics at Wimbledon next year unless he is physically unable to compete at any sort of level.

good observation...

absolutely disgusting this mental midget Hewitt. what a mug

note to MTF: delboy is a huge mug

Soderling is now 10-1 in deciding sets for the year. Only Djokovic sports a better record with 10-0. Shows that Robin's mental strength is up there with the best

Boring match. Fell asleep by the third set. Robin returned Hewitt's WTA serve horrendously, but served well himself. Too many errors from the baseline as well. At least Hewitt is now out so I don't have to suffer his pusher game and annoying antics on court.

I really don't think Hewitt choked.
It comes down to his physical conditions, his body failed him at the end, and resulted in those errors.
He is not young anymore, and his physically intensive style of playing for many years have caught up with him. It's a pity that these days Hewitt has had to play great players in early rounds of GS.

I absolutely love Robin's game. Yet I preferred Lleyton to win.
Congrats Mr. Soda, but He-win no more :sad:
