That was a revenge by Nadal for what happened at Wimbledon some time ago.
I am sure Soderling will have the same feelings of revenge for their last match, so Nadal will have to pay attention.
It is going to be an interesting match to gauge if Nadal is really getting close to his top clay court level. If so, he should win losing no more than 2 or 3 games per set. If he still struggles the match will be tighter.
