    The king of clay lost in the 4th round!!!

    Totally outplayed and blown off the court!!!

    What an awesome match!!!

    This is rogers chance to complete the career slam and get roland garros under his belt!! If he doesnt do it this year, he probably never will!!

    GO FED!!!

    I remember back in the mid 90s Thomas Muster was a real king of clay.

    WOW! Tennis has been a big part of my life growing up and I did not expect Nadal to go down like this. Like the commentators said, the way to beat Nadal on clay is to overpower and blow him off the court (mind you, that is very hard to do for 3 sets). That is exactly what Soderling did. Federer is probably popping some bottles of champaign tonight!!!

    History was truly made it seemed Nadal just couldn't compete with the guy although he beat him like 6-0 6-2 last month. Hopefully Federer will win I want him to break Sampras record but Nadal keeps beating him in finals. Murray also got a good chance now.

    Soderling played out of this world. He had like 60+ winners thru the 4 sets. I have never seen anyone destroy nadal like this. AND IT WAS ON FUKING CLAY. Un real. I wish I had caught the ferry to Paris for this!!
