At the time of writing this entry Nadal was 2 sets to 1 down (6-2,6-7,6-4)against the Swede and 2 all in 4th set and Nadal to serve.This could well be go down to the fifth set if Nadal do manage to win this set and if that happens it will be the first time Nadal has played a five setter in Roland Garros.That shows you how tougher customer the world no. 1.
It will take some doing against the Swede who is so powerful in serve as well as ground stokes.His display of ground strokes is amazing to watch and normally I have seen such serenity only from Nadal himself.Nadal has done that to so many opponents here in Roland Garros.But today its his turn to face the music from Swede.
But still Nadal is hanging out there with Swede.Now 4 all in 4th set and Nadal to serve.Absolutely fantastic game to watch.
Now the 4th set is in the tiebreaker and things not looking good for Nadal, 2-0 down with Swede serivng.2-1 Nadal to serve.Breath taking stuff out there.
Now the score is 6-1 in the tiebreaker and the 4 times defending champion is about to bow out from the 2009 French Open.Oh my god , Swede has done it.He has defeated the king of clay Rafeal Nadal who has never been beaten here in Roland Garros.What a major upset in French open 2009.Well played Swede.
