It wasn’t that long ago that Soderling was ranked in the 30s in the world and was just barely trying to hang on to guaranteed positions in tournaments. It’s amazing what one match can do for a man. Soderling’s upset of Rafael Nadal in the 2009 French Open really opened up some major doors for him. Since that point, he has been a quarterfinalist now twice here at the US Open, a runner up once again at the French Open, and a quarterfinalist at Wimbledon. After surviving a five set marathon in the opening round of this tournament, the fifth seed at the US Open has stormed through his matches, dropping just one set to Albert Montanes in the process. Soderling has suddenly become dominating on his serve and has put a ton of sets away in which he has grabbed just the one break.

The accolades just continue to mount for Federer, who is quickly affirming himself as potentially the greatest tennis star to ever whack a ball with a racquet. He is two steps away from his sixth straight US Open finale, in which he has won all but last year’s event to Martin Del Potro. His run of quarterfinals in Grand Slam events has now stretched to 22, a feat that is virtually unheard of in this great sport. The problem that Federer has to have with himself this year is that he only has two quarterfinal appearances and one victory in a Grand Slam events. This is clearly going to be a very, very tough draw to win it all from here, as Soderling, Novak Djokovic, and Rafael Nadal could all still stand in his way. Still, with no sets dropped and just one set that went to a tiebreaker, there doesn’t seem to be much getting in the Swiss native’s way.

Give Soderling one thing: He clearly isn’t afraid of taking on the best in the world. The bad news for him is that Federer has a very, very long memory, and he isn’t going to take kindly to the losses earlier this year at Grand Slam events to the Swede. Don’t be surprised if this is a three set slaughter, though Soderling will clearly never believe in giving up.
