Wimbledon: No. 6 Robin Soderling Outlasts No. 9 David Ferrer

In a match that was far more of a nail-biter than anyone would have predicted, No. 6 Robin Soderling beat clay court specialist No. 9 David Ferrer 6-2, 5-7, 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 to make his first Wimbledon quarterfinal.

Soderling seemed to revert to some of his hotheadedness of old during the match, growing increasingly frustrated with his inability to close out a win he must’ve expected would come more easily.

But he crucially broke at 5-5 in the fifth at love, and finally sealed the win on his third match point.

Soderling next faces the winner of Nadal-Mathieu (read: Nadal) in what is shaping up to be the most intriguing of the quarterfinals.
