No. 6 Robin Soderling came away with an easy straight sets win over Spain’s Marcel Granollers, winning the second round match 7-5, 6-1, 6-4.
Of all the players considered to have a shot at this title, it’s pretty safe to say that none has been more impressive than Soderling. As others have faltered, many experts have pegged Soderling as the sharpest player in the Gentlemen’s Singles draw.
Of course, this comes as no surprise to me, since I was clairvoyant enough to make him my pre-tournament predicted winner.
