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.
soderling will be remembered the most by his victory over rafa in RG 2009 and that was more impressive overall, no question ......but purely by quality of play, I think his 2010 QF vs federer was a bit better than his 4R match vs nadal in 2009 .....
