French Open 2010: Federer Out in Quarter Final to Robin Soderling

Robin Soderling has performed the biggest upset of the 2010 French Open Men’s Singles tournament today by knocking out number one seed Roger Federer in four sets at Roland Garros.

Swede Soderling, whom Federer defeated in the final last year, came back from one set down to win 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 with some stunning tennis to which the Swiss had no reply.

The result means that second seed, Spaniard Rafael Nadal, is now a strong favourite to win the French Open on his favoured clay, though, on today’s evidence, Soderling must be one obstacle should he make it to this weekend’s final.

Soderling will have a tough semi-final against clay-lark Tomas Berdych, who skittled out Mikhail Youzhny, 6-3, 6-1, 6-2, to add to his impressive straight sets victory over fourth seed Andy Murray in the previous round.
