Robin Söderling finally beat Roger Federer, after what has felt like a forever going loosing streak. Streaks usually end, so why not now. Robin lost the first set, but won the three following sets to win the French Open quarter final match.
I write this because I like to play tennis myself. I played when I was a kid and enjoyed watching guys like Ivan Lendl, Boris Becker, Stefan Edberg, Pat Cash, Mats Wilander, and so on. I am no tennis oracle though… so do not expect in depth analyses about tennis games.
Roger Federer is one of the best of all time. Maybe THE best of all time. How long will his reign continue? And who will take his place? I do not think it will be Robin Söderling. He is good, but not great. Tonight´s gonna be a good night for him though. And he has worked very hard for it. Lets hope Söderling wins the French Open now! It will be good for Swedish tennis.
I miss Stefan Edberg… he was truly great.
