The 26-year-old Soderling stopped a sluggish Monfils, who defeated Roger Federer in a three-set semifinal. “I’m in a learning process. Every time I get to a final like this something goes wrong, and this time it was the preparation.

Federer Escape Act, Four Seeds Fall in Openers at Wimbledon

I’m not sure,” Federer said. “That was the moment I felt was the toughest because if I wouldn’t have come out of that game, I don’t think I would have broken the next one.
