Soderling Takes Lead in Inaugural Tennis-X Euro Series

Swede Robin Soderling, unseeded in play last week at the ATP stop in Lyon, finds himself atop the standings of the inaugural Tennis-X Euro Series after claiming his career-first ATP title.

"I didn't know what it was like to win a tournament and I almost cried when I realized it was over," said Soderling, who was also expected to shed more tears upon realizing he topped the Euro Series.

In its first week the Tennis-X.com Euro Series was hailed by fans, players, and industry executives alike.

"It is the tennis fan who will likely benefit the most through greater exposure on television for tennis, for ATP players and for ATP tournaments," said ATP CEO Mark Miles, here actually talking about the US Open Series.

"I'll have to agree with Mark," said Tennis-X CEO Luke Johnson. "The Euro Series brings the spotlight on the European indoor events leading to the year-ending Masters Cup. It's a slam dunk. Each day I manually calculate who is leading the standings, purely out of interest, sometimes out of boredom. Sometimes I'll put on my Andy Roddick matching shirt and hat before I do it, or my Roger Federer headband...I don't have a whole lot to do around here."

In second place in a prime position for Euro Series cash is Belgian Xavier "X-Man" Malisse, the Lyon runner-up, while tied for third are Lyon semifinalists Vince "Vincenzo" Spadea of the U.S. and Spain's Dave Ferrer.

"I'm going to Metz, Madrid, Stockholm, and qualies for Paris. Still a lot of tennis left after a week like this," said Malisse, here not referring to his hopes of staying near the top of the Euro Series standings. "I think I'm in the main draw in Madrid so that will be the priority and then we'll see."

The 2004 Tennis-X Euro Series is a historic achievement in men's tennis that links the nine men's European indoor tournaments after the US Open leading to the year-ending Masters Cup, creating a cohesive, five-week European indoor season. Players will be competing for bonus prize money to be awarded at the end of the Euro Series and more importantly, the honor that goes with being crowned the Euro Series champion.

Three events will be added to the Euro Series standings this week in the BA-CA Tennis Trophy (Vienna, Austria), the Open de Maselle (Metz, France), and the Kremlin Cup (Moscow, Russia). Other remaining events are the Masters Series-Madrid (Spain), the Davidoff Swiss Indoors (Basel, Switzerland), the if...Stockholm Open (Sweden), the St. Petersburg Open (Russia), and the Masters Series-Paris (France), all leading to the season-ending Masters Cup in Houston.

Tennis: Third time lucky as Soderling claims first title in Lyon

LYON, France : Sweden's Robin Soderling claimed his first ATP title with a three sets win over Belgian Xavier Malisse at the 791,750-euro ATP tournament here.

The 20-year-old from Gothenburg clinched the title in his third final appearance 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 against Malisse who had also been bidding for his first career title in south eastern France.

"This is a great day for me," said Soderling. "I have dreamt of this for a long time.

"In the second set today, Malisse returned well and put me under pressure but I have been serving well all week and that allowed me to stay confident."

The towering Swede, a hardcourt specialist, got off to a flying start winning three games to love, conceding just two points on his serve before wrapping up the first set in 25 minutes.

A dip in form in the second set allowed Malisse back into the game and the Belgian raced to a 4-0 lead before taking the set 6-3.

But Soderling upped the momentum in the third and made a crucial break in the fifth game for 3-2 before claiming the title after 1hr 24min on court, to make up for his previous losses in Stockholm last year and Marseille in February.

It was a bitter blow for 24-year-old Malisse who suffered his sixth loss in a final, including two this year.

Soderling, 53rd ranked, beat Malisse, who is ranked one place above him in 52nd, in their only previous meeting in Scottsdale earlier this year

Here's an article from the Stockholm Open site. it has some quotes from Söderling.

Impressive week by Söderling

Robin Söderling captured his first ATP title ever in Lyon on Sunday. The 20 year-old Swede defeated fellow if… Stockholm open player, Xavier Malisse, in the final and is looking forward to playing in Stockholm.


- if… Stockholm Open is a very important tournament for me and I will enjoy playing on home soil a lot. Hopefully I can play as good as I did last year, but it’s going to be immensely tough, as the line-up is so good, told Söderling after his victory in Lyon.


The young Swede had a breakthrough at the if… Stockholm Open last year, when he reached the final, which he lost by the narrowest of margins to Mardy Fish. In February he lost another close battle in Marseille, before finally getting his revenge on Sunday as he prevailed 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 against Malisse.


Söderling hit several winners from the baseline throughout the match, but looked to be in trouble when he double faulted at 5-4, 30-15 in the final set.


- I was so nervous in the end. When I double faulted in the last game, I could hardly put any pace to my second serve, Söderling confessed afterwards.


This week the tour moves on to Moscow, Vienna and Metz. Söderling will play in the Russian capital, just like his compatriots Jonas Björkman, Joachim Johansson and Thomas Johansson. Last week, Thomas Johansson reached the third round in Tokyo, while Björkman and Joachim Johansson advanced to the quarterfinals in Lyon. The latter has a fantastic 38-6 record indoors since last autumn, but was defeated by Söderling in the quaterfinals in Lyon.

Hey Robin!!!
Congratulations on your first tournament win!
But could you please not party so hard next time?
Even if you only have to play Volandri 3 days later!
Volandri had a 0-10 record on carpet,
so should have been a cupcake for you.
And if you pay out 1.3,
some people think that's a good deal,
and put some money on you.
Those people are very happy when you have two MP's
in the third set tie break.
And are not so happy
when you lose the next 4 points.
You're a great player,
but not today!
Definitely not today.

Sorry, Soderling fans. Had to get that of my chest. I feel better now!
