    Watching sport six hours after it's happened is just as good as watching it live. The passionate fans NBC are trying to attract understand that.

    :-?

    222 kmph first serve by RS.

    RS is just feeding the ball to Nads.

    GP Robin.

    I'd be astonished if Rafa doesn't break at least once in this set

    Fed came back from 1-5, Nadal can easily win this set. IF Robin can't keep it up.

    With Söderling it's not really about the surface. It's about wind, humidity and temperature. If it's windy he becomes an error machine. If it's not windy on the other hand...

    Also, if it's warm and fairly dry -> fast balls, fast courts, then he will have a chance. If it's slow and damp -> slow balls, slow courts -> he will just hit himself tired.

    Söderling do know how to play on clay so that's not the thing that usually causes his game to break down. Wind on the other hand...

    So do I, but I can't find a stream. Eurosport isn't helping either.

    I doubt Soderling can hold serve here to go up 5-2.... REALLY REALLY doubt it.

    I'm watching on Eurosport player (until they get the stupid racing off the TV channel and show an actual sport), but I had to pay 5 euros for it.
     
  41. Soderling holds, 5-2

    Oh wow, he held.... hmmm, trying to see how that plays on his confidence now to win the set... pretty good I think.

    Unless of course.... he chokes ... (but Nadal doesn't face players that choke as I recall from Nadal fans).
