Very very tough affair... not making any prediction here, could easily go either way. And yes, a pity that they meet so early in the tournament.

i think tsonga can get by in this one. his serve may prove to be the difference in this match.

Soderling returns better than Tsonga and that will be the difference.

Since when does saying that Player X returns better than Player Y mean that Player X is a great returner?

It was just a kind way to say he's even worse on the return on my part ;)

This match could go either way. Soderling to sneak a win even though Tsonga has been playing well.

hey old chap, Soderling is a much better returner than Tsonga. Put the wiskey down for a sec.

Really like this match-up though I agree it's too early in the tournament. I'm hoping for a Sod victory in 3.

Two master tactictians out there ;). Tsonga, is a better mover, and has alot more feel at the net, he should win.

i dont know about that "two master tacticians" out there. tsonga has better results on hard courts and is a more accomplished player of these 2 on the average.

soderling is just not that good.

i expect tsonga to win this in 2 sets. it could go 3 sets so we will have to see.

what up old friend?

tsonga is a more accomplished player on hard courts old sport. i expect him to get this done in straight sets.

he has a bigger serve and is generally better at the forecourt and the net. i think he can keep soderling under pressure.

Hey.

I expect this too be a great match and the winner has a great shot at making the final.

I agree Tsonga is better at the net, but from the back of the court you have to give Soderling the edge, the serves are pretty close as well.

Should be a good one.

affirmative TMJ. should be a good match.

on clay, i would have been forced to go with soderling. he has improved his fitness and looks a little more confident out there.

this is hard courts and tsonga has significantly better results on these type of surfaces. it is slightly more humid in shanghai than it was in beijing and the ball is bouncing higher but these type of conditions did not prevent tsonga from making the finals at the australian open in 2008.

so from my vantage point its tsonga but we will see how it all plays out.

Highly anticipated match to me. Tsonga has won his last 7 sets "6-3", it's ridiculous, I haven't seen such a thing :lol: It's time to play again a tie-break. 7-6 6-4 for the Frenchman.

Not sure about that old sport. If you saw Soderling the last 2 sets against Roger at the US Open, you would not pick against him. He can take out anyone on any given day.
