And as usual you missed the point. Just as Wimbledon has chosen to use it's own rules, so could RG. Wimbledon takes into consideration performance on grass. RG could do the same but chooses not to. That's why your favorite player does not get the seeding he deserves in may years.
I was busy with work and a young child and didn't even bother to check the score on the day - just assumed an easy win for Nadal. Next day I was in the supermarket and saw a picture of Nadal on the front cover of the Times - headline something like "Shock defeat etc". I literally stood in the supermarket aisle thinking "what the f......?"
People have been arguing about this for years and no one has changed their mind after thousands of discussions. I'm willing to and have admitted that he didn't play his best tennis. However, my opinion will not change on this. The fact that it's always a subject with him is telling enough in itself. Have a good day.
Wow, in fact Rafa beat Soderling in straight sets at 2006 Roland Garros too
So Rafa has beaten Soderling in straight sets at Roland Garros THREE times.
It really proves that you have no idea when Rafa will lose Roland Garros, it could literally be to anybody.
Soderling played a high risk game, and it came off the vast majority of the time against Nadal that day. On other days, Soderling would have made a lot of unforced errors with such a strategy, but on this day he got a lot of them in.
