Nadal Out of French in the FOURTH Round!

Postby JTWood » Sun May 31, 2009 2:57 pm

MSNBC.com wrote:PARIS - Rafael Nadal’s unbeaten run at the French Open is over.

The four-time defending champion lost to Robin Soderling of Sweden 6-2, 6-7 (2), 6-4, 7-6 (2) Sunday in the fourth round, ending his record 31-match winning streak at Roland Garros.

Soderling, seeded 23rd at this year’s tournament, ran Nadal ragged on center court with his hard serve and booming forehand.

Pretty amazing stuff there. 8-o

Wow, indeed. I guess the others didn't see the significance of this, but yeah...this means Federer might actually win a career grand slam.

I think this means Federer has no excuse to lose now. Sure, a victory on his part would be bittersweet if it wasn't at Nadal's expense, but at this point in his career, I'm sure he'll take it any way he can get it.

I put fed's chances at about 325% of getting the title (still the "favorite" though, even without Nadal). The bottom of that bracket is so tough (Federer should beat Haas, but he'll probably have to play Monfils in the quarters and probably either Robredo or Songa in semis. I think he's gone before the final.
By the way, I would SO love to see a Davydenko-Monfils final!

Question for the tennis fans, Is this the beginning of the end of Nadal (he lost to Federer on clay a couple weeks ago in Madrid), or was this just a fluke loss?

He was complaining about the material in Madrid's court. I think he just got screwed up on something somewhere along the line and just got out of his groove. That happens in tennis.

At his age, there's no reason to think he'll do anything other than return to his state of dominance.
