US Open - Roger Federer vs Robin SoderlingUS Open 2010 Quarterfinals: Roger Federer vs Robin Soderling Live Video Stream

2nd-seed Roger Federer will play against 5th-seed Robin Soderling for a spot in the Men’s semifinals. The match will be played tonight 8:00 pm ET Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at Arthur Ashe Stadium, Flushing Meadows, New York.

Roger Federer hopes a return to one of his favourite surfaces will help him avenge his only defeat to Robin Soderling when they clash in the quarter-finals of the 2010 US Open on Wednesday.

Federer won his first 12 matches with the big-serving Swede but spoiled his perfect record when he lost to Soderling in the quarter-finals of this year’s French Open.

The pair are again drawn to face each other in the final eight of a grand slam, and while the hardcourts at Flushing Meadows have traditionally favoured Federer, he remains wary after their last clash.

The winner of this quarter-final match will play either Novak Djokovic or Gael Monfils in Saturday’s semi-finals.

UPDATE: Dealing well with the whipping wind and a familiar foe, 16-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer served his way to a 6-4, 6-4, 7-5 victory over fifth-seeded Robin Soderling on Wednesday night to reach the US Open Men’s semifinals.

Federer accumulated an 18-2 edge in aces against the big-hitting Soderling and improved his career mark against the Swede to 13-1.

The lone loss had come in their most recent match, in the French Open quarterfinals this year. Soderling’s victory there ended Federer’s streak of reaching the semifinals at a record 23 consecutive major tournaments.

Federer then lost in the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, too, prompting some to question whether his best days were behind him. But now he is back in the semifinals at a Grand Slam tournament — one that he has won five times.

Federer will face third-seeded Novak Djokovic, a 7-6 (2), 6-1, 6-2 winner over 17th-seeded Gael Monfils of France earlier Wednesday.
