Soderling beats Djokovic

5:49 am on 26 November 2009

The Swedish tennis player Robin Soderling has taken his second major scalp at the season-ending ATP Tour finals in London, beating 3rd seed Novak Djokovic in straight sets.

Soderling, who only made the draw after the injury enforced withdrawl of Andy Roddick, took the first set in a tie-breaker and the second 6-1.

He is all but assured of a place in the semi-finals after beating Rafael Nadal first up.

Nadal will play Russian Nikolay Davydenko later this morning.
