I think so - the clay gives him extra time to set up for his shots with his decreased movement. Hardcourts are too difficult for him to win anymore.

Hey, he made the final, which all but one other player cannot say.

Hell it even has it's own section

2009 - Tennis - Robin Söderling dethroned the 'King of Clay', Rafael Nadal in the fourth round of Roland Garros in four sets, who beforehand, seemed unbeatable at this Grand Slam. This ended Nadal's amazing streak of 31 matches at this tournament dating back to 2005, when he made his debut. Therefore, it was Nadal's first ever loss in this tournament, and notably, being knocked out so early in the tournament.
