Soderling defeats Rafa in Roland Garros

As pro-tennis tournament match followers know by now, Rafa will not be advancing to the Quarter Finals. In the upset of the tournament, Robin Soderling won 3 sets out of 4 to win his place in the Quarter Finals. Rafa Nadal was classy in his loss and Soderling was just as classy in his win and humble too, maybe even surprised. Rafa pointed out that two men came out to play in every match and one would win. Soderling said several interesting things: first he said he had not had a minute to himself to think about his win; that he was going to be happy for a few minutes but he could not afford to be too happy for too long because he had to focus on his next match. One thing is for certain now: Roland Garros is WIDE OPEN. The Quarter Finals begin in Paris in just about 1 and 1/2 hours from now. Today will bring us - on the men's side - Haas vs Federer; Del Potro vs Tsonga, Tommy Robredo, and Andy Roddrick vs Gael Monfils. Now - with my schedule today, I find myself hoping for re-runs. I believe the tournament is now wide open with any one of the remaining players capable on any given day of taking the Championship. What a day for clay!
