    And I'd also want to see Djokovic vs Soderling; it would be good for the tennis world to see two other players rather than Nadal/Fed in finals, especially in such a big tournament as RG.

    Soderling is up against some WR (22) Austrian iirc so I almost take it for granted that Soderling will win that one because if he keep using his heavy forehand to press the balls down, the Austrian wont stand a chance because he can't play against players like Soderling who does that... If I only could remember the name.. >,>
    Blai you mean the lefty from Austria, Jurgen Melzer, but he is facing Novak. And I agree with you about seeing some other players in the finals.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Bah, wrong of me, Djokovic is playing the Austrian. Soderling's playing the WR (15) Cze.

    Thanks goldb, and toc, I did mean him but they're not playing until an ev. final (yeah right) so I just confused myself and mixed the top/bot brackets.

    Top Bracket
    R.Soderling
    v
    Tomas Berdych
    Bottom Bracket
    Jurgen Melzer
    v
    Novak Djokovic

    Novak Djokovic (my pick)
    v
    Rafael Nadal (my pick)
    Nicolas Almagro
    v
    Rafael Nadal

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    SODERLING FO 2010 plz xD


    Guys i have to disagree.

    Fed is AMAZING on clay, second only to Nadal...what happened was..Soderling was on FIRE, and 23 straight semis will NEVER be matched but Sod was on fire, fed played fine lol.

    Yeah, I'm not trying to take credit away from Sod, he was fantastic out there! even Fed( who is normally quick to find excuses) admitted afterwards.

    YES! Djokovic is out! I'm so happy, he only has himself to blame for not closing out the game; he was 2 sets up. Serena lost

    Huge upset, but to put it fairly Federer had never been good on clay. If Nadal wins Roland Garros he will reclaim the number one position. But at least Federer fans can look forward to the next Grand Slam at Wimbledon where Federer excels. Personally, I'd like to see Soderling or Djokovic win the French Open though Nadal has been performing very well.
    I'm not a huge tennis fan but I do like Feder, shame he is out .
    Nadal is the favorite right?

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Well, yeah, since Djokovic blew his chance in the quarters I believe it'll be Soderling vs Nadal, and in that game, I don't think Soderling can play as brilliant as he did against Federer so I must say Nadal for the gold...

    Sod was brilliant all of last year, first final jitters got to him. This time i think it'll be different.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Women's final is between Serena's conqueror Stotsur who crushed Jankovic in jus over an hour against Schiavone who wasd leading Dementieva by a set when she retired because of an injury.

    Men's final I'm guessing will be Soderling vs Nadal, maybe an upset???

    Exactly!!! I thought he woulda at least taken Nadal to 4-5 sets, but looks like Nadal reigns supreme again . Congrats to him. 2nd time he's won French Open without dropping a set O_O

    Shame Sod, but you'll win Wimbledon, no worries *har har*

    Yes guys, Sod didn't play his best game, but Nadal sure did. Best serves this tournament and his agility made Sod look like a snail. Though, Sod had a much tougher opponent than Nadal in the semis.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Off course Soderling couldn't play his best game. He is a big guy and had a 5 sets semi-final match. It must have taken out a bit from him, physically. Still, even if he had shorter matches prior to Final. I dont think he would have taken the match to more than 4 sets.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Some of the rallies in this match were epic, I mean the shots Nadal was picking up from the net was awesome and Sod really could hit the ball. Nadal had to keep returning the ball at a really good length so as to not give Soderling time to play his game, which was really hard and he did brilliantly.

    Sod had Fed and inform Berd back to back....Nadal had....Almagro his whipping boy...and tired Melzer....

    But the result wouldn't have been any different tbqh.
