The Swede stunned Nadal in last year's fourth round on the way to his first grand slam final but never really got going against Federer, losing in three sets.

"Hopefully I can handle it a little bit better this year than I did last year because last year everything was so new for me," Soderling said.

"Now I've got used to it a little bit more. I played matches against Roger in both the Wimbledon and US Open last year and against Rafa in the World Tour Finals."

Sunday's final is being billed as a revenge match for Nadal as he aims to become only the second man to win the French Open five times or more.

The Spaniard, though, is only concerned with taking back his claycourt crown.

"I never believe in revenge, I believe in trying my best in every moment. If I lose, I lose and I'll congratulate Robin because he did better than me," said Nadal.
