Söderling Ready For Game Of His Life

Sweden's new tennis star Robin Söderling is preparing for the biggest match of his career to date as he takes on Fernando Gonzalez of Chile in the semi-final of the French Open in Paris at 1pm this afternoon.

24 year old Söderling has never played a Grand Slam semi-final before but is in the form of his life.

The number 23 seed caused a sensation earlier in the week when he became the first player to beat four time champion Rafael Nadal on the Roland Garros clay. The win has been described as one of the greatest shocks in the open era.

Söderling has lost his last four matches against Gonzalez, who's favourite to progress to Sunday's final.
