The Swede, who is playing his first tournament since losing to Rafa Nadal in the Roland Garros final earlier this month, has not dropped a set in the opening two rounds and looks a sound bet to progress deep into the second week.                                            

Soderling now faces the 25th seed Thomaz Bellucci in the third round after the Brazilian dispatched Austrian Martin Fisher in four sets.
