Clay King Nadal dethroned at Roland Garros, Queen Ivanovic followed

...........Rafael Nadal has been knocked out of this year's French Open by Swede Robin Soderling in the biggest upset of the year so far...........
“I’m so proud of myself. This is the best win of my career against a man who is the greatest claycourt player in history. But I told myself before the match that I had to believe I could win."

Very disappointed we won't be able to see Rafa/Federer part IV at the French Open.
Very disappointed too. Should Federer win the French it should be with Nadal on the other side of the net.
Strange, for me it wasn't dissappointment that I felt. I was shocked but rooting for Soderling. I now realize how great this is for tennis in general. It was the talk of the TV news stations (and radio, and internet) yesterday. Even ESPN was leading with it on all their broadcasts - this goes to every meat head sports fan in America - reminds them that tennis is alive and well around the globe. But also, really opens up the tournament and now there are 12 men that can realistically win this thing. Every result available is a HUGE story: Fed wins and becomes the GOAT, Roddick wins and is no longer a won-hit-wonder OR a grand slam virgin wins their first. It's super fun to follow now!
I'll see you in the chat room - look for me in there - I'll be there as much as I can during live matches. But gotta go to work soon.

yeahhhh. but if federer wins, i dont think it'll be tainted in any way just because rafa wasnt across the net. historically, it wont matter.

Monfils was awesome today, yet ARod was narked as it was a bit dark!
I think he's got a great chance against Fed Id love to see him in the final, id also love to see fed equal the record.
If Fed gets to the final he'll win if Murray isnt on the other side of the net!
