4 Comments for ATP/WTA Previews: Soderling, Verdasco Headline Bastad

Jake Willens Says:

Soder wins this thing easy and makes the finals of the US OPEN!


Kimmi Says:

I wouldn’t think it is a given for soda. There is tricky opponents playing here but if he continues his form of RG and wimbledon he could well win this.

i am interested to see how verdasco will fare up. he is gone downhill since the french open.


Jake Willens Says:

Sod over Verdasco 7-6, 6-3 in the finals.


Kimberly Says:

what’s up with verdasco, has he tanked or what? Losing to Robredo is not cool
