Robin once again defeated Ferrer and he is 4-0 in their matches and after a huge tiebreaker not a surprise that the 2nd set was easy.

Will Söderling follow through or as usual lose a winnable match?

Sick tiebreak, I think David had 4 SP's, and Robin a couple too before closing it out.

Good win for Söderling. He could win his quarter, but will probably go out against Simon or Santoro...

the road to quarter final is open with hrbaty in the second, the 2007 hrbaty shouldn't be a problem for robin

For those who want to know why Robin is called the toad, here are the reasons.

Hrbaty likes the playing the Toad as Söderling doesn't have great variation and is 3-0 in their matches.

They have not played for a year and a half now, one of the wins was after an injury for Robin and the last was when he was in deepest hole and Hrbaty was on top of his game.
2007 doesn't look like this

Yes, the toad dominates over the frog in this battle.

Ferrer in the last couple months lost two long tie-breaks: 14-16 to Federer and now 13-15 to Soderling :) Last year he also lost 8-10 to Robredo after 6:1 leading.

Nice win for the toad over the frog but now he runs into Hrbaty. Maybe not a great player but I think Hrbaty will frustrate Soderling, certainly not as simple a match as it might be.
