Nadal has only lost the one match (Soderling) on that court in his career and he had also had a great 2012 clay court showing leading into the French (he was the favorite-by all accounts) This was a huge opportunity to win another slam and the career slam (Nole) but there were previous milestones (like the world #1 Wimbledon match) that were maybe more important to him.
He would have been nš 1 even if he lost that Wimbledon final.

Yeah, I was going to say the same. Sounds like the story that Nadal's grandma had said he was going into pro golfing after tennis.
