    Soder and Del Potro have been injury prone lately. Otherwise they are about to take over tennis.

    I've never rated Verdasco, but gotta give him his due. Ferrer is a decent-to-good clay-courter. I hope Soderling whips him in the final, assuming he gets past De Bakker, of course.

    Haha vcs I came to post the same thing.

    Never been a Verdasco fan, but his win over Novak in Monte Carlo and his performances here in Barcelona, when he's clearly been tired from the amount of tennis he's playing, has been superb.

    Provided he doesn't burn himself out, he'll do well for the rest of the clay court season. He's self-imploding a lot less.

    Soderling through after a scare or two in the 2nd set. Should be a good final.

    Verdasco too tired I reckon. Too much tennis lately.

    Soder nice and fresh.

    Yeah, has a pretty poor record against Söderling too.

    Funny thing about that record was it was when Soderling was not even half as good as he is now. Sure Verdasco has improved, but not like Soder has.

    Have some dough on a Collingwood/Söderling multi at $2.05. Feeling pretty confident at the moment.

    I think it could be close, Verdasco seems to be in decent form, has been tested a couple of times this week while Soderling has probably had it too easy. More importantly, Verdasco's head seems to be a bit more stable recently. Still, Soderling needs to win this to validate his recent consistency and build up a cushion before the French, because he most likely won't defend his RU points from last year.

    Feels so strange not to have a Nadal coronation in this tournament. I'm really looking forward to the next Nadal-Soderling meeting on clay, could get a bit ugly for the Swede. Still, I love Soderling's attitude, he fears nobody and he'll go down swinging on his own terms.

    Soderling is like a mercenary. Doesn't like anyone on tour. He's a one man wrecking machine

    Yeah, I'd love to read Nadal and Soderling's autobiographies to find out what they really think of each other. I like it in small doses, you don't get that old-school Lendl-Connors-McEnroe type animosity on the ATP tour these days.

    Great win for Verdasco. Seems Spaniards are unbeatable in Barcelona.

    And Nadal beat this guy 0 and 1 last week. Scary.
