Robin Soderling anticipating tough opener against Andy Murray

Robin Soderling is expecting a tough start to the Barclays ATP World Finals when he takes on Andy Murray on Sunday afternoon.

Soderling and Murray are all square at two apiece on the head-to-head but Soderling won the most recent encounter in straight sets earlier this year. The Swede recently usurped Murray from the world number four spot in the rankings after his victory at the Paris Masters though the British player will regain it if he wins on Sunday.

“I think every match has been even against Andy, they’ve always been tough matches,” Soderling said. “Even though three of them were a few years ago, they were close. It will be tough, but it will be close. I’ll have to play well to win. It not, it will be extremely difficult. He moves extremely well, returns well and doesn’t give you anything. He is an extremely tough player to play against and you always have to play well to beat him.”

Soderling's big hitting game is tailor-made for fast indoor courts and when on song he can be devastating on the surface as those who witnessed his destruction of Rafael Nadal in London last year, will testify.

“I’ve always liked to play indoors,” he said. “Growing up in Sweden, I’ve grown up on the surface so I go into every tournament with confidence. I feel good. I think I have had a good season and been very solid and played well throughout the whole year. The past week, winning my first  Masters 1000 title was great and I did it on a pretty similar surface to the one here in London.”
