Tennis: ATP World Tour Finals 2010 – Federer Beats Soderling

Roger Federer defeated Robin Soderling in his final ATP World Tour Finals 2010 Round Robin match to ensure the win in Group B with three wins from three matches.

Federer won the match 7-6 (7-5) 6-3 – taking his record against the Swede to an impressive 15-1.

Soderling will have to await the result of tonight’s match between Andy Murray and David Ferrer. If Murray wins at least a set, the Brit will progress in second place.

Federer wins Group B without dropping a set, and he looks set to play Djokovic or Berdych in the semi-final on Saturday, as Rafa Nadal looks likely to win Group A. The signs are that the final everyone expected – Nadal v Federer – is still by far the most likely to occur, unless Murray or perhaps Berdych can raise their level for two or three matches.
