Clay is Rafa land, anyone to beat him there needs to play out of their mind good. Fed while a solid clay player in his own right is no Rafa. Take the Fed resume as a whole and I can see your point, but it was on clay..now if Soderling beat Fed at Wimbledon than that would be different, as Wimbledon has been Feds baby as much as the French has been Rafas. But all things considered I think his beating Rafa at the French is way more impressive and will probably be the thing he will be remembered for the most in his career.
