Roger Federer delighted to overcome Robin Soderling in straight sets

Federer has yet to be challenged at the ATP World Finals

Roger Federer has progressed to the semi-finals of the Barclays ATP World Finals this week with the minimum energy expended.

Federer ensured he finished top of Group A with a 7-6, 6-3 win over Robin Soderling to leave the Swede's chances of qualifying for the last four, hanging back a very slim thread.

Federer has been in majestic form this week, beating Andy Murray and David Ferrer fairly comprehensively. Soderling provided the Swiss with his toughest test so far and came close to snatching the first set once Federer had relinquished an early break. Unfortunately for Soderling, a crucial misjudgement at set point down in the tiebreak proved decisive. Opting to leave a mishit Federer return, he could only watch in despair as it landed just in and from there onwards it was plain sailing for the former champion.

Federer sympathized saying, “It's the worst feeling in the world when you leave a shot like that, you have a split second to decide, and then see it go in.”

“To play against Robin is never easy. He's a big hitter and you have to work on your defence. He can be very frustrating to play against, but I took it to Robin and I'm very pleased to have won."

"I could still have maybe needed some time to wait for the Murray match tonight, so I just wanted to come out and try to play as good a match as I can because losing is never the solution to trying to win a tournament. That's why I'm happy that all three matches were straight sets, I didn't waste any energy, I'm playing real well and I'm through to the semis so it's all good right now.”
