    that is slightly long odds. why is that. soderling factor?

    nadal only 1.22 to make final. this is because no big hitters in his section. on these courts, you can be surprised by a hitter. it takes hitting well. i think only almagro is a threat in his section.

    Nadal at 1.22 is good. Federer is indeed not good enough, though some good play today will help his odds I think.

    TBH, I don't see why Federer should be that much more uncertain to make the final than Nadal. Nadal is more injuryprone, has proven to be more upset prone in Slams, and hasn't made the final the last 4 years in a row..

    I'd say they should both be around 1.22

    Nadal should really worry about a non-exhausted non-injured Soderling reaching the finals !

    They will never learn. Some spaniard players like Almagro are not allow to beat Rafa. It's their hometown hero!
