Andy Murray booked a quarter-final place at the SAP Open in San Jose with a 6-4 6-2 win over Yeu-Tzuoo Wang.
If Andy can keep up the tenacity and determination he showed to take that 1st set against Wang, I have no doubt he'll take Soderling in straight sets.
The 18-year-old fell 3-0 behind in the first set but after pulling level, he survived a marathon eighth game on his own serve before taking the first set.
Later Murray said:
That was one of the toughest sets I've ever played.
Murray roared through the second set to set up a quarter-final meeting with Sweden's Robin Soderling, who beat Australian Mark Philippoussis.
It will be Murray's first ATP quarter-final of the season, and only the third of his career.
Victory over Soderling on Friday would set up a possible semi-final with top seed Andy Roddick, if the American beats Germany's Bjorn Phau.
