come on, Rafa....break!
I hate Soderling but if he wins today I'll become his greatest fan!
Soderling is playing big time tennis. Big serve, big forehand. No messing around. He's playing the same way that he plays indoors.
Nadal with a break point here....reckon he will take it.
Soderling seems nervous now, making backhand error.. 30-40, breakpoint for Nadal
Rafa...get lucky NOW 30-40
is he telling me I stopped doing work to watch him lose playing badly...to SODERLING? :cry:
AT least lose fighting comeback king:cry:
gods have weighed in: ON NADAL'S SIDE.
Soderling is doing something that I have always wondered why other players don't...taking advantage of Nadal's short balls...
Awesome from Soderling to save the breakpoint, Rafa was dictating that rally till he came up with that monster forehand
Rafa is hitting shorter than normal, usually he'd have enough depth that the topspin then kicks it into a horrid place. Today the short balls are short enough that they are just popping into Soderlings hitting zone (at least that's my take)
God bless Soderling. Amazing point to save break point.. Soderling please hold serve!
That forehand pass was insane and needed more than anything. Soderling had just broken, was 15-0 and flying.
What a point to get deuce by Soderling!
But that was one great forehand from Soderling to stay in the rally :shock:
break point down and Soderling comes up with the goods, he was way out of position and hits a screamer down the line, then kills it off with another huge forehand to the Nadal forehand corner.
the French crowd should shut the f up
Lol same here. I don't think he'll win though.
Great play by Soderling. God the french are really rooting for him
Where are you all watching this? TennisChannel is showing BS
Holy crap!!!!!!! Soderling playing brilliantly on CLAY against the KING!!! Nadal looks so down right now. HOLY MOLY!!!
Soderling holds, leads 6-5.
French crowd are chanting Robin! Robin!
Rafa is in a bit of bother here folks:shock::shock:
I feel sorry for Nadal.
Wonderful ace!!!! Its beautiful tennis! Totally not typical clay court tennis.
Wow! Nadal serving under pressure now...
Soderling is getting great depth on his shots, it's uncanny. Rafa can't do anything when those shots land within inches of the baseline. and he's serving huge. this next game will be very interesting, a lot of pressure on Nadal.
fine lose 2nd set, but wake up cabron will you for the next 3 sets
Still.. Nadal making unusual forehand errors. Playing forehands that barely go over the net.
Soderling playing great however :shock:
Rafa cannot go down 2 sets here! Wake up Rafa!
was in a good position on the bp, but robin came through.
Really strange to see Nadal struggling with Sodderling so much here,I mean he destroyed him recently in Rome.Still even if Sodderling pulls off the upset of the century(which I still think won't happen)I can't root for the guy,I like his game well enough(especially when he's playing indoors) but for some reason the guy just comes of as an *** to me,don't know why.
Nadal needs to force a tiebreaker to not go 2 down.Really tough match for Nadal
Can Soderling take Nadal to 5 sets for the first time ever at the FO?!?!
don't he's won it 4 times in a row.
French crowd seem to be hoping for the upset.
Soderling is on fire!
And Nadal's having problem with his form, he doesn't even want to play the topspine backhand.
Time to break, go Soderling!
Sorry, but the French crowd really doesn't like Nadal, although he has won this 4 times!
*cheers for Rafa*
the crowd is amazing!!!!!!Allez!!!!!!!!!!!
Soderling is trailblazing, he pathfinding...he's showing everyone how to do it.
I see it but I don't believe it. Still think Nadal will win this one, but at what cost???
Rafa's forehand error has been there recently.. C'mon Rafa! show me some good tennis!
All i can do is laugh lol.
I wish Nadal doesnt win the 2nd set. At least something exciting would happen today that means: Nadal playing a 5 set match at the French for the first time or Nadal losing at the French for the first time.
The way it goes u think it is a 5 setter?
He can't go down to Soderling for heaven's sake because Soderling goes nowhere
0-15 nadal serving
Rafa is playing really poorly...his movement is all wrong...I like Nadal alo but he doesn't deserve to win the way he's playing at the moment.
Soderling taking his time...smart playing
Rafa is being outplayed here. Weird.
