If you double fault on set point and double fault on break point you are likely to lose. A double fault looked like the only way that Soderling was going to break in 2nd set.

Expected result. Davy was playing catch up all through the match and he could barely do anything on Soderling's serve.

Didn't watch the match but followed the live score.. definitely looked like bad serving from Davy.

Soderling won 1st tie-break against Denko in 5th attempt. Who had a break advantage in the first set?

Great match, long quality rallies in Davys service games and Soda on fire in his. Could have gone much easier to Soda who wasted alot of 0-30.s and a 0-40 in the beginning of the first set and serving for the 1st at 5-3!!

Davy choked on serve and made 2-3 Df.s on BP.s!!

Soderling is the real deal.
I think he could do some big damage on grass.

There were two amazing gets in the first set by Robin, the first to set up BP and the second at 40-0 on his own serve to get to 5-2. I was pleasantly surprised to see that. A bit tight serving for the first set but held it together in the tie-breaker. Good compusure to close the match out when serving for it too after DFing at 30-30, he then produces a second serve ace to bring up match point.

Davydenko was being bossed around during large patches of that match. The guy couldn't bring up his serve when it mattered either. He DFd at 2*-3 to give Robin the break, then again at set point in the tiebreaker AND again at 4*-4 in the second set on BP allowing Robin to serve for the match. I think the way Soderling was taking big cuts at the ball had something to do with it, though.

And to answer Voo's question, Toad served first in the first set and had the break advantage.

Good luck in the final, Robin.

Second set was pretty good tennis, the first wasn't that special. Too many ugly UEs.
But Robin will probably win tomorrow.
