way too good from toad, was in another league. Should give fed a stern test.

Another clutchy Marin's appearance . Cilic's mentality is still intangible , above others . Losing a serve to stay in the set should be called with his name . It's just fascinating to watch his coolness in missing , like these misses aren't connected with him . And his first serve is a really huge weapon , against one of the worst returners in top 50 he can't get a few free points on serve . Toad looked somehow exhausted and it was there to take it but Marin was too classy

And Almagro is a great man

Not bad play in difficult conditions from the Toad.

He is going to have to deal with slice backhands and off pace stuff from Fedclown, lets see if he can do a bit better than last year.

Great performance by Söderling here. Playing a high-risk game and to good effect most of the times. He was the one dominating and dictating the way the points were played from the very start.

A couple of lapses in the first and the third set but the overall result was never in doubt. Now go for the glory, legend.

Dedicated to Everko, Start Da Fail and other Nadaltards who said his path last year was ā fluke:haha:

Pity he isn't in the Nadal's quarter:sad:

Impressive, commanding performance from Sod! :eek: :hatoff:
Total demolition job, Cilic had no idea what hit him here.

These heavy conditions - wind, rain - seem to suit him and his game very well indeed. If it stays this way, and judging on what I've seen from both Federer and Soderling today, added to Sod's positive mindset, I surely fancy Soderling's chances in the QF - call me silly, if you like.

Impressive. Söderling-Nadal-Final would be the next best thing to a Fedal-Final. maybe even a bit more interesting.

If he somehow beats Fed, he could actually win the whole thing.

He certainly has a good shot at Fed if the later does not bring his best to the game.

That would be great. If I knew he would go on to win the whole thing, I would actually root against Fed in the QF!

With current Nadal, Soderling would squash him.

Which part you don't understand ? That Soderling is a bad returner or Cilic's serve is shitty even when he made the first one

Pity this is a QF and not a SF match between Fed and Soderling.

As much as I would love the Sodaking haters getting pissed at him beating Rafa in a final, I'd rather see Fed smash Nadal in the final.

Robin. :inlove: By far, the most impressive so far. ;)

bad draw for him, he should have met Roger in SF :sad:

One thing is for sure: the Swiss is going to have his hands full in the next match, Toad is looking impressive :yeah:

A Nadal-Soderling final would be more interesting than a Federer-Nadal final. With the form Nadal showed against Hewitt, it's very, very difficult to see Federer beating him here. I prefer Soderling's chances. Furthermore, with Del Potro injured and Djokovic taking serving lessons from Dementieva, Soderling is in my opinion the third strongest player in the draw. Unfortunately for Soderling, Federer seems to know exactly how to play him.

I agree.

I thought Marin would be lucky/good to take a set, but this scoreline is impressive.

Also if Soderling made it to the final he'd be on a high from being the first player in 135 years to dispatch Federer before the semis, an achievement like his one last year here.

I hope I'm wrong, but Federer will most likely improve his H2H-record to 150-0 against Söderling... Federer is just too smart, too good of a player for Robin. Federer will mix it up, play short crosses, dropshots, make Robin come out of his comfort zone. 3-0 or 3-1 to the Swiss superstar.:music:

They have similarly game but Soderling has every shot except volley better than Cilic . Cilic is slightly better mover but the biggest Cilic's problem is that he can't go toe to toe with his opponent and get over his opponent when both are playing well . Every time he goes down in big moments and can't win close sets . That was also Robin's problem before year or two but Magnus really improved his mentality . Cilic probably needs some permanent coach which will travel every week with him and helped him on some other way than Brett in these few weeks per year

:haha:Lol Everko nice to see you comeback after your disaster prediction about Soderling will never past 4th round in slam again :devil:.

We forgive you for that :umbrella: but don't try to look for excuses by referring to easy draws Soderling has you make you look more like a clown :silly:

Don't be a bad loser and accept your defeat with dignity :o
