Wimbledon: No. 2 Rafael Nadal Levels Match At One-Set All Against No. 6 Robin Soderling

No. 2 Rafael Nadal made quick recovery from dropping the first set against No. 6 Robin Soderling, breaking Soderling in his first service game, racing out to a 3-0 lead and holding on for a 6-3 second set win.

Nadal’s balls are landing much deeper in the court than they were in the first set, not allowing Soderling to come over the ball and pound his forehand for winners nearly as easily.
