Almagro beats Soderling to win Swedish Open Title

Almagro beats Soderling to win Swedish Open Title

Nicolas Almagro defeated Robin Soderling 75 36 62 to win the Swedish Open title in Bastad.

Almagro outplayed Soderling, who was the defending champion, in the deciding set to and claimed his first in a title of the 2010 tennis season.

Soderling lost the opening set but was able to recovered in the second where he broke Almagro early and establish a 3-1 lead. He closed that set to take the match into a third but Almagro broke him twice in a row to ease to victory.

“Robin is a great player. Here in Bastad he’s like a hero,” Almagro said.

“I tried to be him. I was thinking about the match all night and this morning, and finally I can beat him and I’m very happy,” he said.

“It’s a great feeling to win here,” said Almagro. “It’s always amazing to win a final and I’m very happy with the week. I’m going to enjoy this moment and then prepare for next week in Hamburg.”

“I didn’t play very well in the 2007 final here, but today I fought very hard and I’m really happy with the physical and mental sides to my game,” reflected Almagro. “It was a big match, a big fight and we were both battling like gladiators. Robin is a great player and I’m sure he will have many more chances to win this tournament in the future.”

"Too bad that I didn't get the break early in the first set. I played OK in the second set but I gave away a break in the decisive set, and that's why I lost the match," said Soderling. "I was very disappointed after having lost in the final."

"I have some very important tournaments coming up, and a stretch that suits my game really well," he added.
