RAFA LOST FOR THE FIRST TIME AT RG
King of clay Rafael Nadal is out of Roland Garros after never losing there. Not many people expected that - probably nobody did. I though it could be a good match since Soderling beat my favorite for this years Roland Garros David Ferrer in previus round. But is still it is hard to believe that it really happened. RAFA IS OUT.
Robin Sodeling caused one of the biggest upsets in tennis world ever beating Nadal at Roland Garros in four sets 6-2, 6-7(2), 6-4. 7-6(2). Number 23 seeded Swede was able to do what many tennis player weren't - he was dominating today at the court. He had 9 aces and no double faults, he had 27 winners from 35 visit at the net. He was playing really good and took number 1 tennis player out. Tennis history changed today.
Rafael Nadal is out - it just sounds unbelivable, so is the second best tennis player on the clay this year Novak Djokovic, after his lost to Philipp Kohlschreiber 4-6,4-6,4-6 yesterday. Does that mean Roland Garros belongs to Roger Federer this year. Can he win and put all 4 Slams under his belt. I sure hope he can but we will have to wait and see if just maybe suprises are over for this years Roland Garros.
I was sad when my favorite players David Ferrer and Juan Carlos Ferrero lost, but now the two tennis players Robin Sodeling and Philipp Kohlschreiber, who defeated them also send home Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. But that is the game of tennis and tennis world that so many fans around the world love. What is next?
